JavaScript is a web technology you can use to improve your user’s experience and is easy to learn. Yes, even YOU can learn to harness the power of JavaScript to meet your website objectives. JavaScript is a must-have tool for any Front-End Developer because it allows you to interact in real-time with your users, validate input from your users, update or retrieve data from the back-end asynchronously, manipulate any HTML or CSS settings without additional page loads and to give you access to the powerful new HTML5 objects such as; geopositioning, media plugins (audio/video), drag-n-drop, local storage, server-side events, canvas and more. JavaScript is flexible and easily included with any HTML document.

In Interact with JavaScript you will learn the basic constructs of the language as well as common uses of those constructs to make your web page react and interact with your users. You will be able to extrapolate the constructs and syntax to other popular C-based languages such as PHP to continue your journey in becoming a Web Developer. After we learn the basic concepts we will use our new found skills to write a useful interactive application you can use in any of your projects.
