Getting Started with JavaScript

0% of 6 hours and 54 minutes completed.

JavaScript used to be the language that added simple effects and validation to our Web pages. It can still do that, but JavaScript is used for much more than that these days. Full applications are being written in JavaScript. Some people even use JavaScript on the server to power their application.

This course is for programmers already proficient with any other programming language besides JavaScript. You’ll be introduced to JavaScript’s syntax, common idioms, its strange object model, and its roots in functional programming.

The labs for this course will have you working with simple HTML files that you can edit with any text editor on any operating system and run in a modern browser.  

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Run JavaScript in your Web pages
  • Process data with conditionals and loops
  • Use functions and objects to organize your code
  • Work with Array iteration methods
  • Create customized objects using prototypes and function constructors
  • Avoid polluting the global namespace
  • Apply some of the new features in ECMAScript 6
