The next Step moves on to operations and we have lightning looks as arithmetic, assignment, logic, conditionals and operator precedence - it is hardly an introduction it is more like a complete survey.
It isn't until Step 3 we reach the bit that most beginners find really difficult, i.e. flow of control. In this short section we have all of the control statements - if, if else, switch, for, while, do while and breaking out of loops. If you have never programmed before this is a tough section that is going to need reading more than once. Again, rather than being a gradual introduction, it is complete.
Step 9 is about creating web apps, but really it only introduces the idea of Ajax. The final step is called Scripting Magic and it consists of a collection of more advanced and impressive topics such as canvas, SVG and so on.
