Project Description


This online course is focused on teaching you the fundamental skills and concepts of JavaScript, the standard programming language of the web, used by 95 per cent of the more than 1.6 billion websites in existence.

Along with CSS and HTML, JavaScript is one of the core languages of the web, enabling interactivity and functionality. And because it is the global standard web language, if you write JavaScript code it can be used by virtually anyone on Earth.

After completing the course, you will be able to write efficient, functionally powerful and syntactically correct JavaScript code, use data types supported by JavaScript and understand how to solve complex problems with JavaScript code.

Please note: Apart from a similar name and sharing syntax and some standard libraries, Javascript is a very distinct language from Java, which is used mainly to write distributed applications for business, server side web applications and Android apps.
