JavaScript: Strings

If you are familiar with other programming languages, such as C# and Java, JavaScript strings should be a walk in the park as the are extremely similar (see example code below).

'use strict';

// JavaScript Strings are immutable
//  1. Once created they cannot be changed
//  2. Two Strings can be concatenated using the + operator
//  3. the '\' forward slash is the escape character to allow restricted characters

var string_one = "Some string with an escape character\" so that a paren can be in the string ";
var string_two = 'Another string using single quotes with an \' escaped single quoted';
var combined_string = string_one + string_two;
