Length of Course: 5 Weeks
Improve your web pages with enhanced usability and dynamic content!

JavaScript is one of the world’s most popular scripting languages and the scripting language of the world wide web. Together with frameworks such as jQuery, the most popular JavaScript­ based library, the web is more powerful than ever before, ­allowing web authors with little or no programming knowledge to quickly pick up the web development skills they desire.

By learning JavaScript as well as jQuery, you will be able to manipulate web page elements, add dynamic content, improve the user experience with interesting transitions & animations, add HTML form validation and much more.

During this 5 week course learners will be taught the principles of programming from the ground up and learn how to integrate JavaScript & jQuery seamlessly into their front­-end HTML/CSS designs.

I have done short courses at a different institution before and I must say that my experience at Friends of Design was infinitely better. The lecturer was great, very informative and always willing to help. Even though I had a very good understanding and a lot of experience in After Effects before the course I found that I learnt a lot regardless and got and even better understanding of the program which is what I wanted to achieve. I actually wish the course had been a week or two longer just to gain more knowledge but I think I’ll have to come back to Friends of Design for a different course.
