You'll understand the different types of variables available to you and how to create and utilize them for maximum damage to the undead.
We'll discuss conditional statements (if/then statements) and talk about how to execute different code depending on whether something is true or not such as "There's a zombie gnawing on your head!"
And finally, using functions and reusable code, we'll land sucker punch after sucker punch after sucker punch on every zombie shuffling toward you.
What You'll Beat Zombies With
Besides learning how to punch a zombie in the HTML5, you'll learn the major HTML elements that make up a modern web page and how to put them to good use. You'll learn the structural underpinnings of a web page, how to mark up text, how to wrangle attributes, and ways to embed images, audio, and video. By the time you're done you'll understand HTML, know how to build your own web page, and pwn zombies with your skills.
How You'll Learn to Smack Zombies Around
You won't just passively take in the view, like a zombie shuffling across the mainland. You'll have plenty of combat practice with analogies, examples, and code tutorials you can build, break and fix again. Working with your hands and your head you'll craft code that pleases the eye and knocks a zombie into last Tuesday.
All the code and directions are provided as both codepen tutorials and downloadable html files, so you can fight the apocalypse how and where you like. You can work with them on the codepen site or on your own device.
And later you'll bring those skills together in a final project that cements those skills into zombie smashing muscle memory.
Are zombies just a gimmick? Why would this be any better than a straight laced book that sticks to the facts?
Straight laced books are often straight boring. And if you have insomnia problems go buy that book. The author, John, has read the boring books and knows that staying awake and engaged are also important for learning. But this book uses zombie references and analogies not just to make you smile, but to help the material stick. If a tough technical concept is related in silly terms you understand, like a zombie trying to buy gum at a super market, it's much more likely to stay in that brain those zombies are intent on eating.
