JavaScript Level 1: Introduction

If you want to create interactive web pages, you have to learn JavaScript, a programming language that enables you to add dynamic elements to your website. The web has changed, and users expect content to adapt to them. This course will cover basic tasks like creating mouse-overs and pop-up windows, and we will discuss using elements such as variables, events, objects, functions, and the browser’s Document Object Model to create even more interface interactions.

After you have an understanding of the language and its syntax, you will be able to use the powerful JavaScript library known as jQuery. Used on almost 80% of websites, jQuery makes JavaScript coding more productive and more likely to work reliably across different browsers.
