JavaScript & JQuery

Course Description

Take your web development skills to the next level and learn how to build interactive websites and create immersive web experiences with JavaScript. Master the latest front-end development techniques while working on real-world JavaScript projects.

Real-World Application

What we have seen is a dramatic increase in the importance of JavaScript to the web community. Today users expect a high degree of interaction and responsiveness from their web applications that simply cannot be achieved through simple page submissions.  A great deal of the work that was once done on the server has now moved into the client side, and as the complexity of the web UI's grows, the need for individuals with a background in CS that can develop well-structured and robust JavaScript applications will grow with it.

Who Should Attend

This course is for beginning programmers with prior knowledge of HTML interested in building more robust web pages.


HTML 5 and CSS or equivalent knowledge.
