The JavaScript assignment consists of a free online course Introduction to JavaScript. It is part of your preparations for the interview. Instructions are sent to you through email when you have signed up. You should complete the material to fully prepare for the interview. 

Why do I have to do the online Introduction to JavaScript course?

The introduction to JavaScript course will teach you the very basics of JavaScript. We ask you to complete the course for two reasons: 

  • Intensity - you may not necessarily find the online course overly challenging but there is a lot of content to cover. Completing everything should give you a general idea of how the Academy will be, as well as get you familiar with sitting in front of your computer for longer periods of time. 
  • Motivation - the assignment should be used as a gauge to help you determine if this is something you really want to do. If you are really serious about pursuing a career in programming then you shouldn't have a problem completing it, regardless of the effort you need to put fourth in order to finish.
