Javascript BIT202

Develop a Fundamental Understanding of Javascript

Languages such as Javascript or html are good starting points for learning computer programming. Programming is something that changes almost as fast as you learn it; and in some respects, any course you study, may be out of date before you complete it. Studying a course is however still an important and valuable way of getting a handle on computer programming. If you understand thew fundamentals, even things that may have been superceded; you will be in a far better position to discover and understand the latest developments with respect to programming; and to teach yourself new languages as you encounter them. 

JavaScript is by far the most popular and widely used scripting language on the internet. It was invented by Brendan Eich at Netscape and has appeared in Netscape and Microsoft browsers since 1996. JavaScript has since grew in popularity and is now supported by all the major internet browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Chrome).

JavaScript is a scripting language which was designed to add more interactive features to static HTML pages. You may have seen some features on websites while browsing the internet such as mouse trailers, popup windows, drop down menus, countdown timers, embedded clocks, etc.; these are all developed using JavaScript. The JavaScript code is usually embedded in the HTML code and runs on the user’s browser, that’s why JavaScript is known as a client-side scripting language. However, the main downside of having a script running on the browser and the code embedded in HTML is that everybody can download and view the code, without the need for a license. Client-side and server-side scripting will be explained at the end of this lesson in more details.

JavaScript is a powerful scripting language which can be used to read and modify HTML elements, validate data, and it can also react to events such as a mouse click or a key press on the keyboard, etc.

WHAT IS JAVASCRIPT

JavaScript is a scripting language which was designed to add more interactive features to static HTML pages. You may have seen some features on websites while browsing the internet such as popup windows, countdown timers, embedded clocks, etc.; these can all be developed using JavaScript. Another popular use is for form data input validation, for example, ensuring that input data on a Web form is valid.  The JavaScript code is usually embedded in the HTML code and runs on the user’s browser, that’s why JavaScript is known as a client-side scripting language. However, the main downside of having a script running on the browser and the code embedded in HTML is that everybody can download and view the code, without the need for a license.

 

HOW HTML, CSS AND JAVASCRIPT WORK TOGETHER

With HTML, style sheets and JavaScript, it is now possible to create dynamic web pages and websites which combine structure, style and interactive elements.  In this course, you saw how these 3 technologies interact together.

  • HTML language: Hyper-Text Markup Language is used for defining the structure of the content such as paragraphs, lists, tables, images, comments, forms, and others.

  • CSS style sheets: Style sheets are used to define how the elements should be displayed. This is also interpreted by the browser, which displays the various elements on the webpage with the styles and formats obtained from the relevant style sheets.

  • JavaScript: This is a scripting language which allows the web page to become more user-friendly and interact to the user’s actions. The user’s actions are called “events”, and the way JavaScript interprets the events is called “event handling”, for example: clicking on the mouse, typing on the keyboard, moving the mouse, pressing the Enter key, etc.
