JavaScript Fundamentals

with

Without a doubt, JavaScript is the most popular programming language in the world. While the web development industry is chock full of frameworks and libraries that simplify some aspects of JavaScript development, there’s something to be said about having the skills to write pure JavaScript. Frameworks, libraries, and transpilers may come and go, but JavaScript is forever.

This course focuses on the basics of the two fundamental aspects of client-side development: the JavaScript language, and DOM scripting. I f you’re a complete beginner, or a coder who has exclusively used frameworks but wants to delve into the guts of pure JavaScript development, this is the course for you.

I started my development career on the client-side writing JavaScript and DHTML components in my spare time. In 2005, Nicholas C. Zakas asked me to join him in writing the first edition of Professional Ajax for Wiley Publishing. Since Professional Ajax, 1st Edition, I've been blessed to take part in other book projects: Professional Ajax 2nd Edition, and Beginning JavaScript 3rd and 4th editions.
