Course Description

This competency-based course will provide students with the "hands-on" skills to design, develop, test, and support interactive web pages using the JavaScript procedural language. Students learn through a series of hands-on workshops and lab exercises to structure and code JavaScript, build and use custom functions, test, debug, and validate programming code, and work with objects, events, and the Document Object Model (DOM). Students will format data using the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). The course will culminate in the design and development of a comprehensive and functional interactive web page.
