Course Objectives

Today, JavaScript is used on most of the pages of a modern website, from small individual sites to the largest commercial sites. And wherever JavaScript is used, you'll also find jQuery. That's because jQuery is a JavaScript library that makes it easier to develop JavaScript applications. That's why every web developer should know how to use both JavaScript and jQuery. And now, this one course covers all of the JavaScript and jQuery skills that every web developer should have.

The course presents the essential JavaScript skills. It goes on to explain essential topics like how to use arrays, web storage, and JavaScript libraries (including jQuery), how to create object-oriented JavaScript applications... how to handle exceptions...and how to use regular expressions.

Advanced skills are also covered, like how to work with events, images, and timers as students build applications like image rollovers and slide to use closures, callbacks, namespaces, and the module pattern to make applications bulletproof...and how to use JSON to transmit and store data.
