Course Description

JavaScript is the most trending programming language on the web today! Facebook, Google, Uber and countless so-called Unicorn startups have now made JavaScript a cornerstone of their technology stack. This online course requires no prior knowledge of the JavaScript language. In the first week of the course you will explore the language's basic concepts and fundamentals, and during the second week we will dive into advanced topics such as functions and objects. While JavaScript is recognized primarily for making web pages interactive within web browsers, this course covers the use of the Node.js library - a platform that enables running JavaScript code outside the browser and allows the development of an end-to-end applications in JavaScript. In week three, we will cover the basic architecture of a web application by getting an up-close view of the different parts that make up this application. You will see how data is being exchanged over an Application Programming Interface (API) and what are the different tools and libraries that will allow you to construct such an application. The course will then cover the basic steps required to set up a Node.js server that can process web requests and interact with various set of databases. In the process, you will also be introduced to the Model View Controller (MVC) pattern, a software architecture that organizes the JavaScript application into modules. Finally, in week four, you will also learn how incredibly easy it is to create beautiful data visualizations that your boss will be proud of. You will gain a basic understanding of the technologies used to present data on the web and will learn how to visualize interactive data using the popular Data Driven Documents (D3) data library. Whether you are considering a career as a full-stack web developer, pondering developing a mobile app for your next startup or just want to pad your toolbox with a highly sought out skill, this course is definitely for you!
