    But why enrol on a course for beginners, if you are not a beginner?

    @spongegeoff Easy credits I guess?

    @spongegeoff required for the degree probably

    You really think people should start coding in a complete IDE with a very complicated language.
    I mean, I did, enjoyed it and thrived, but people don't do that.

    @spongegeoff in my uni we can apply for a test to get the credit without having to go through the entire class, if the student already knows the subject

    @c3r38r170 Definitely. It is way harder to learn a programming language without syntax highlighting and code assist (for JS they are pretty limited, but still better than nothing).

    reality :
    - leaves (*after class is over*)

    nd honestly that is one of the best ways to learn as a beginner, to write without syntax highlighting and autocompletion. remember, some interviewers still conduct interviews on google docs

    Coding on Windows Notepad is a big no-no and isn't efficient at all, and it burns the eyes. It's only meant for .txt (raw text) files.

    Notepad++, however, I'll give the professor a participation award. Anything is better than straight-up Notepad.

    @dotenvironment i actually left in the middle of the class XD . And yeah i eventually learned C and C++ on Turbo C++ and notepad ( had to do it for practicals in college )

    @dotenvironment and Amazon have you using first a web editor and then during physical intervju a whiteboard :)

    @Oktokolo Yep and considering any sane programmer wouldn't go without syntax highlight while working, not using it while learning makes literally no sense.

    And for JavaScript especially just open a fucking devTools window in the browser, like wtf.

    Is that professor gonna start with ES5 next because 'You first have to experience how awful it was back then' or what?

    XP?😳

    @asgs yup and un-activated

    @Oktokolo Sorry, Idk why I understood Notepad++. I still think ESH.

    @c3r38r170 Notepad++ wuld actually be fine as it at least has the syntax highlighting and code assist is pretty lacking without static analysis anyways.
