This class teaches attendees how to build rich client-side web applications using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and some jQuery. Students develop real-world JavaScript applications and learn how to create object-oriented JavaScript applications, handle exceptions, and how to use regular expressions. Then attendees take their JavaScript skills to a more advanced level by working with events, images, timers, closures, callbacks, namespaces, and JSON. The course concludes with an introduction to jQuery.


Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Develop real-world JavaScript applications
  • Use arrays, web storage, and JavaScript libraries
  • Create object-oriented JavaScript applications
  • Handle exceptions
  • Use regular expressions
  • Work with events, images, and timers as they build applications like slide shows
  • Use closures, callbacks, namespaces, and the module pattern to secure their applications
  • Use JSON to transmit and store data
  • Understand how jQuery can make JavaScript code even more efficient


Fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3 training or equivalent experience. If attendees will not have thorough knowledge of HTML5 fundamentals, please let us know and we will precede this course with a one-day HTML5 primer. No prior programming experience is assumed, though this course can be swiftly adapted for a programming-savvy audience.
