Introduction to JavaScript

This course introduces the basic concepts of JavaScript and covers how to use it to create interactive websites and applications. You will learn how to write code that responds immediately to user actions, creates dynamic web pages with templates, handles data handling for web applications, and works with JSON data structures.

This course provides an in-depth exploration of the most commonly used features of JavaScript along with tips on best practices for optimizing your code. You will study object-oriented programming techniques; work with arrays, maps, functions and objects; manipulate strings using regular expressions; build asynchronous programs using Event Emitter; and create modular JavaScript applications.

This course covers the basics of object-oriented programming (OOP) in JavaScript, including how to create classes and inheritance. You will also learn about methods, fields and properties; how to use constructors to initialize objects; as well as working with frameworks such as ReactJS or AngularJS that make OOP development easier.

This course provides an introduction to the most popular technique for making web applications more interactive – Ajax. You will be shown how easy it is using HTML, JavaScript and AJAX to create dynamic web pages that respond immediately to user input. You will also explore how to use Ajax for data manipulation, form submission and conditional processing.

JSON is a lightweight data format that is popular for storing structured information in the Web. This course provides an introduction to JSON syntax as well as how to work with objects, arrays and strings using JSON code. You will also learn about performance considerations when working with JSON data structures on the Web. Audience This course is for JavaScript developers who want to learn more about the most popular features of the language. Prerequisites Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

🚀⚙️ JavaScript Visualized: the JavaScript Engine

As JavaScript devs, we usually don't have to deal with compilers ourselves. However, it's definitely good to know the basics of the JavaScript engine and see how it handles our human-friendly JS code, and turns it into something machines understand! 🥳

Happy coding!
