Common Code Errors

Syntax Error

Another error is a syntax error. This is when your code violates the standards of the language. For example, if we utilize a restricted keyword incorrectly…

let class = ‘Bongo’;

If we console log the variable “class” out, we will see the error…SyntaxError: Unexpected token class. This is because “class” is a restricted keyword in JavaScript. Here is a list of reserved keywords in JavaScript…

Another syntax error is SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier. This usually happens when we have characters in our code that is used for coding purposes but is being misinterpreted by the code. For example, if we have the following string variable…

let animalFood = ‘Bongo’s banana’;

As you can see, we have a single quote that is in the middle of the text being used as an apostrophe. JavaScript sees this as a way to denote the beginning and end of the content. It throws the syntax error because there is content other than the semi-colon after it. This does not mean we cannot use apostrophe, we just have to escape it by using the backslash (\)…

let animalFood = ‘Bongo\’s banana’;

This tells JavaScript to treat the single quote as just text, not the end of the variable content.

Happy Coding!

Unlocking Wireless Communication: A Dive into the Bluetooth API

Wireless communication has become an integral part of our daily lives, and Bluetooth technology is at the forefront of this revolution, enabling devices to exchange data over short distances and creating a world more interconnected than ever before. At the heart of this technology lies the Bluetooth Application Programming Interface (API), a powerful tool for developers looking to harness the capabilities of Bluetooth in their applications. In this blog post, we’ll explore what the Bluetooth API is, how it works, and the possibilities it opens up for innovation in wireless communication.

Understanding the Beacon API: Simplifying Asynchronous Data Transfers

In today’s data-driven world, web applications often need to send data back to the server. Traditionally, this has been done using AJAX requests or similar methods. However, these techniques can come with a cost, especially when dealing with data that needs to be sent during the unload phase of a document, such as tracking and diagnostic data. This is where the Beacon API shines by allowing developers to send data to a server more reliably and efficiently.
