JavaScript is a dynamic scripting language that is extensively used to create web pages and web applications. It is also used to add highly responsive interfaces, validate forms, add dynamic functionality, communicate with web servers, and act as a server-side language. In this course, students will gain a fundamental understanding of JavaScript that will be applicable to other programming languages. Students will learn language basics (syntax, data types, operators), variables, scope, memory, control flow structures, functions, the document object model, the browser object model, object-oriented programming, and events. By the end of the course, students will be able to write and build a program using JavaScript and figure out how to solve a problem in a programmatic way.

Prerequisite: No programming experience is necessary. Students must be familiar with computer basics and have access to the Internet. Students will need access to a computer to perform class-related exercises.
