Javascript for the Web (Online)
#: 162363   ID: MCTC   Section:   
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.
This course will be offered through Zoom and will not be recorded. You will be sent the link  and more information on how to use Zoom before the start date of the course.
