Before on embarking on this course, be sure you've taken these courses first:
More object-oriented coursework will be coming soon.
In this course, whether you follow along using workspaces or download the project files, you'll be using node to run your code. This is simple. In workspaces, node is all set up for you. On your local machine, you must first install node. When you want to run a file, use your terminal to navigate to the file directory (you don't have to worry about navigating in workspaces either). Once you're in the file's directory, simply type
node your-filename.js into the terminal and hit enter. Any output from your file will be displayed in the terminal. If you don't have node installed, keep reading for installation instructions.
Installing Node on Your Local Machine
Welcome to Treehouse, my name is Ashley.
This content is your bridge to more advanced technical skills.
By the end of this course, you'll not only know what an object is.
But you'll also understand the many advantages of object oriented programming.
If you worked for our content on loops, arrays, and objects then you might already
be somewhat familiar with the foundational concepts for this course.
Objects and object literals.
If you haven't,
links to the prerequisites associated with this course can be found on this page.
In this course you'll learn new terms such as class, property, and method.
I'll walk you through the new ES 2015 syntax for working with objects.
And then together we'll tackle a few examples.
We won't be covering inheritance and prototypes in this course.
But check the teacher's notes for
information on other content that covers these topics.
Speaking of teachers' notes.
We make heavy use of them in this course.
So I recommend checking them as you work through each video.
They're filled with great information and strategies to supplement your learning.
While you're working through this course,
don't hesitate to use the video playback controls if you need to.
You can adjust the playback speed to be faster, or slower,
depending on how you want to view the content.
I'm super pumped to have you here, and I hope you're ready to get started.
Come join me in the next video to learn some new techniques that have
the potential to make your job as a programmer much easier.
