Details

You may already know how to use HTML and CSS to create websites. If so, you're ready to add more power to your programming with JavaScript. This programming language lets you add interactivity to your pages by creating features such as buttons, picture carousels, and collapsible panels to your Web pages.

The course begins with the basics of JavaScript code and then moves on to more advanced topics. Throughout the course, you'll get plenty of hands-on practice to give you the experience you need to really understand how JavaScript works. And since no JavaScript course would be complete without a discussion of jQuery, you'll learn about it as well. By the end of the course, you'll understand how to use jQuery to catapult your basic JavaScript knowledge to incredible new heights.

This course assumes you already know HTML and CSS. JavaScript is always used with these two programming languages, not as an alternative to them.
