Constants

Constants are values that can’t be changed once they are set. Think of this like your birthday. You are born on a specific month, day and year and once that happens you can’t get a new one.

Syntax – ECMAScript6
const birthday = "07/24/1992";
  • const
    • This is a special word that means, I can only be given a value once. Think giving getting a birthday
  • birthday
    • The word that comes after const is special name for so your computer to know what to do when it sees this name again
  • =
    • This symbol is give your name a value
  • “07/24/1992”
    • This is the value you assign to the special word you chose

If you want to display what value birthday has you would do the following:

console.log(birthday);

Output: “07/24/1992”
