JavaScript Projects Repository

This textbook will often reference the javascript-projects Github repository as you are working your way through. This repository contains code for most, but not all code snippets, exercises, and studios throught the book. However, it does not contain any graded assignments.

Before moving on to the next section you will need to fork and clone the javascript-projects repository. You have already completed this same process during the Your First Program section of the previous chapter.
