Tech Tutorial: Learn to Program with JavaScript – Episode 01 Website File Structure

JavaScript was originally created as a scripting languages for web browsers, allowing developers to make HTMl documents more dynamic and useful for their users. 

Before we jump into how JavaScript can be used in HTML documents, we first need to better understand the folder and file structure of websites and web applications. In this video, we walk through the most common folder and file structure used when creating websites from scratch.


Personal Recommendation (unpaid)
Programming and software development are awesome! Being that you are learning along with me, there is an excellent chance you can make this a career. Based on my own life experience, let me suggest to you that you go get a Computer Science degree from Neumont College of Computer Science and kick your life into hyper-drive.


Securing Express APIs: Using the DotEnv library to keep secrets safe (What-Why-Where-How)

This video is a live coding tutorial held during one of my full-stack web development courses. It is part of a full series on Securing Express API applications. In this video we run through the process of setting up a .env file to be read by the DotEnv NPM package, adding a .gitignore file to the project so that the .env will not be added to git repositories, and adding a config module responsible for reading the environment variables. The concepts surrounding each of the steps above are covered in great detail in order to make sure that my students understand the why behind the process rather than just doing.

Please keep in mind that this is a live coding session and therefore the quality is not necessarily of production value.
