About this video

Despite the deluge of new coding languages over the years, JavaScript continues to dominate the web. The language is a staple in most of the front-ends; if not vanilla JavaScript, you won’t be surprised to find one of its derivatives on the next website you visit. This ubiquity makes JavaScript a sought-after skill. This course is designed to teach you that skill from scratch.

You’ll begin by learning how to set up your coding playground and then gain some familiarity with the JavaScript syntax. Once you’ve gotten your hands dirty, you’ll discover how to store data in variables, comment out your code, and do more with your variables by learning about operators.

Next, you’ll learn about data structures and conditional statements, further shoring up your JavaScript skills. By learning about the Document Object Model (The DOM), you will be able to change the elements of a webpage and add interactivity to it. You’ll also learn to work with strings and arrays, and then, to make your code concise, learn how to write your own functions. Toward the end of the course, you’ll work on a final project wherein you’ll get to use all these skills together.

By completing this course, not only will you have a solid understanding of modern JavaScript language, you’ll also be able to use it to create engaging, interactive webpages.
