JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Introducing JavaScript Using the Console

Where does the console.log function belong in a .html file?

I think this was explained rather as a side note? It didn't seem important.

  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
document.write("Begin program");
document.write("Welcome to JavaScript Basics");

You will want to put it inside of your <script></script> tags along with your document.write. The reason is that console.log() is a javascript method you can call and it works great for debugging.

    console.log('this is a test');

If you wanted to see what was inside of a variable:

    var name = 'Joshua Eagle';

Thank you, Joshua.
