Overview

This course follows on from Web Development Fundamentals – HTML and CSS (QAHTMLCSS) to add the basics for the third skill needed for web development, JavaScript. This course, using the latest revision of JavaScript and developer tools to allow this, starts with the basics needed to write simple scripts and builds on this to prepare you for using modern JavaScript frameworks and libraries such as React and Angular.

Target Audience

The course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn web development and perhaps progress into using modern JavaScript libraries and frameworks. It is suitable for those who are relatively new to programming, or experienced developers skilled in other languages who need to learn the nuances of JavaScript.
