Course Description

In addition to HTML and CSS, JavaScript represents one of the main tools web developers use to create rich, responsive web and mobile applications. Its use has expanded with the use of jQuery and AJAX and has evolved JavaScript to become much more than just a scripting language used to manipulate the user interface. In this three-day JavaScript Training course, students will learn to use the most recent, widely supported version of JavaScript - version 5.1. They will learn how to create basic statements in JavaScript, how to declare and use primitive and complex variables and data types (including objects), how to create and use Functions and Expressions and how to match patterns using Regular Expressions. In addition, students will see how to manipulate the Document Object Model (DOM), how to handle keyboard and screen events, how to validate form input with JavaScript and how to debug and handle errors in their JavaScript code.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  • Use features of the most recent version of JavaScript - v5.1
  • Use complex and primitive variables and data types
  • Work with Objects in JavaScript
  • Use Regular Expressions for pattern matching
  • Handle and respond to screen and keyboard events
  • Validate form input with JavaScript

Course Audience

This course is designed for Web designers and others who want to learn how to use JavaScript to enhance their Web sites.

Course Prerequisites

Students should have familiarity with HTML and CSS. Some programming experience/familiarity is helpful but not a requirement.
