JavaScript has become an essential web technology along with HTML and CSS, as most browsers implement JavaScript. Thus, You must learn JavaScript if you want to get into web development, and you must learn it well if you’re planning on being a front–end developer or on using JavaScript for backend development.

JavaScript is a good choice for your first programming language. JavaScript is nearly ubiquitous. And you can use to develop all sorts of applications. Many websites you probably use every day rely on JavaScript, including Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Spotify.

JavaScript is easy. I m not the first one or last one to point out this, because this fact is very well known across the industry. This is why it is a very good starting point for those interested in learning to code.

JavaScript is a real programming language: It doesn’t work like HTML or CSS and it has its own set of rules… and although it’s not always easy for Web Designers to switch gears and start thinking like computer programmers, my hope is that my gentle introduction will make your transition easier.

The goal of this course isn’t to turn you into the next great programmer. This course is meant to familiarize Web Designers and Newbie Programmers with the ins and outs of JavaScript and then move on to more advanced concepts and tools for adding really useful interactivity to a Web site as quickly and easily as possible. Perhaps best of all, JavaScript is actually built into your browser, so you don t have to install anything to start programming in it. That makes it incredibly accessible. There s a good chance you ll find the basics easy to learn, but don t worry because there are plenty of advanced concepts to keep you busy learning for a very long time.

Instructor Details

Hi, my name is Charlie Chiarelli. I'll be your teacher for this course. I will spend as much time as necessary to help you do the best you can. But, for you to succeed you must be willing to work . I am a retired High school Computer Science and Mathematics Teacher from Canada. I taught for 35 years, I have a BMath degree from the University of Waterloo. I was a frequent speaker at educational conferences (ECOO) and seminars . Most recently my talks focused on E-Learning and the future of education (Flipping the Classroom). I was the school webmaster and served on a number of school board committee , recently advising my school board (Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board) on its online learning direction. I was also the contest coordinator for the Annual Programming Contest for the past 15 years. For the last 7 years before I retired I was in the unique position of teaching most of my computer science classes entirely online using the D2L LMS. Because of low enrollment and lack of qualified computer science teachers I became the board teacher. So my virtual class was made up of students from various schools in the region. I am not a brilliant software engineer trying to teach programming. I am a high school computer science teacher that has taught teenagers for over 35 years. So I think my perspective and sensibilities are quite different than the typical Udemy instructor. I feel this gives me a greater appreciation for what beginners need to learn and how it should be presented. The next big blue-collar job category is already here and it s programming. What if we regarded code not as a high-stakes, sexy affair, but the equivalent of skilled work at a manufacturing plant? I believe we should spend less time urging kids to do expensive four-year computer- science degrees and instead introduce more code at the vocational level in high school and community colleges. Mid career people can learn coding online at sites like Udemy. I put forth the belief that we should focus less on the wunderkinds and more on the average individual. I hope you agree and find my courses rewarding.
