Product Description

JavaScript (JS) is a companion language to HTML (pre-requisite to JavaScript).  This course is intended for those who are interested in programming and want to be able to provide interactive features for websites.  Students will also learn about the AJAX techniques (Asynchronous JavaScript And SML) to make non-page-level web requests in order to update a portion of the webpage.  AJAX is helpful in webpages and web apps to provide a better user experience (akin to a desktop or phone app).  Learning JavaScript will help you also learn other computer languages later on.

Cascading Stylesheets specifies the visual aspects of a webpage as it loaded into a browser, JavaScript allows you to change these same settings at run-time, based on user actions (i.e. button clicks).  If you take JavaScript, it will be helpful in the CSS course, but JavaScript is not a pre-requisite to CSS course, and vice-versa.

NOTE:  JavaScript is the foundation for popular frameworks such as JQuery.  Although you can learn to use JQuery without necessarily knowing and understanding JavaScript itself, it is helpful to have this underlying knowledge if you continue on to learn to use JQuery.
