JavaScript for the Web

Course description and dates: In this class, you’ll be introduced to web applications using a combination of HTML, CSS and JavaScript (JS). You’ll learn the basics of JavaScript syntax and common programming concepts including strings, arrays, loops, conditional statements and boolean logic. Through hands-on coding you will create your own examples of simple programs to run on your own website. After a thorough grounding in “vanilla” JavaScript, you will learn about using JS libraries, and code your own simple application using the popular jQuery library.

Prerequisite: HTML & CSS II or equivalent. The class will wrap up with a survey of some currently popular JS frameworks and libraries (like React), and advise on resources for further learning.
