About

You will start by learning what JavaScript is and how browsers use it. You will move on to look at the JavaScript syntax—such as comments, operators, and more—and then variables and functions. You will then learn how to execute different pieces of code based on certain conditions as well as how to make code loop a certain number of times. You will finish up the JavaScript section of the video by learning about the Document Object Model or DOM.

The second part of the video introduces jQuery and how to use it in your projects. You will then manipulate the DOM and finish up with a quick overview of a couple of advanced jQuery features.
