  • Course details

    JavaScript is a scripting language of the web. As the web evolves from a static to a dynamic environment, technology focus is shifting from static markup and styling—frequently handled by content management systems or automated scripts—to dynamic interfaces and advanced interaction. Once seen as optional, JavaScript is now becoming an integral part of the web, infusing every layer with its script.

    Through practical examples and mini-projects, this course helps you build your understanding of JavaScript piece by piece, from core principles like variables, data types, conditionals, and functions through advanced topics including loops, closures, and DOM scripting. Along the way, you will also be introduced to some ES6 and the basics of JavaScript libraries.

We'll start out by getting to know JavaScript itself and familiarize ourselves with the tools used to work with the language. We'll explore concepts, including variables, functions, objects and methods, events and loops, and throughout, we'll work together on several projects to put theory into practice and make sense of how JavaScript is used in the real world.
