Key Points to Remember

  • All JavaScript statements must end with a semicolon (;), although it is not strictly required and can be omitted in most cases due to automatic semicolon insertion.
  • JavaScript is interpreted by the browser or other runtime environments, and it is case-sensitive, meaning that Log and log would be considered different identifiers.
  • Comments can be added using // for single-line comments or /* ... */ for multi-line comments.
