Course Description

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 will prepare you to create and host web pages using an open source Node.js utility and Visual Studio Code.

Requirements

  • Basic programming skills as might be learned in an introductory programming course in college
