Coercion in Javascript

Day 3: Coercion

var a = 42;
var b = a + ""; // implicit coercion
var c = String( a ); // explicit coercion

Javascript Loop

Day Two – Loops

Took a look at the for and for / in loops and how they’re used in variables and objects to pull information.

var warGoodForObject = {
"what": "nothing",
"who": "no one"
for( var name in warGoodForObject ) {
console.log ( name + ": " + warGoodForObject[name] );

Results in console:
what: nothing
who: no one
