Languages Focus: Variables

A variable holds a value that you can use and change throughout your code so long as the variable is within scope. With variable declaration, you not only want to know the syntax of how you declare a variable but you also want to know where. Are you allowed to declare a variable inline? What are the available scopes: local vs. global. Can you assign a value at the same time you declare a variable?

JavaScript Variables

JavaScript is a loosely typed language. Each variable is cast in usage as string, number, boolean, function, or object.

Variable names are case sensitive.

Alternatively, you can specify the value when you declare a variable:

var FirstName = "Mike";
var LastName = "Prestwood";
var Age = 42;
Syntax Example:
var FirstName;
var LastName;
var Age;
