Coding Terminology

I am still doing some pre-work assignments provided by the Iron Yard. So far, it had been an easy ride until I hit some bumps. I’m noticing some various terms being used in the coding world that I’ve heard of but never really knew the meaning behind it.

  • What is API?
  • What is node.js?
  • What is the difference between Java and Javascript?

Knowing how I am, I knew I would go crazy with the research on the three questions I had so far–but I will take it all in a stride. I eventually will understand what they are. After all, I studied and practiced how to do SQL–so, I knew I can figure this out.

Right now, I’m reading up on Atom, a text editor, recommended by Iron Yard. From what I’ve read–it seems like it would create a smooth ride for me to learn how to code using Atom while avoiding issues I could have had with other text editors like browser compatibility. On the plus side, it is open source!

Now…I’m going to learn how to install the Atom text editor and see where that gets me.
