This book will take your imagination to new heights by teaching you how to work with JavaScript from scratch. It will introduce you to HTML and CSS to enhance the appearance of your applications. You’ll then use your skills to build on a cool Battleship game! From there, the book will introduce you to jQuery and show you how you can manipulate the DOM. You’ll get to play with some cool stuff using Canvas and will learn how to make use of Canvas to build a game on the lines of Pacman, only a whole lot cooler!

Therefore, learning about the logical operations is the key to gain good knowledge of JavaScript.

I would like to suggest you to practice all the code in this chapter at home. You just type them on the console, avoid copying and pasting the codes. This will hamper with your learning. As a programmer must have a good typing speed, copying and pasting the codes will not improve this skill. You may face problems in typing codes; however, you will learn.

You can solve any arithmetic problem using JavaScript. You can also check whether your logic is true or false on console. If you can do this, we can move on to the next...
