Mastering JavaScript & JQuery Essentials (TT4115)

This hands-on course is geared for web developers who need to learn basic JavaScript and JQuery to use with today's systems and architectures to build sophisticated web interfaces. JavaScript is simple and elegant but is often difficult to work with because it's so different from the programming languages most developers are used to utilizing. You will experience a balanced mixture of theory and practical labs to gain core JavaScript skills to ease the development of advanced web applications.

If you are building for the web, learning jQuery will change the way you write JavaScript, working across multiple browsers and platforms. After this course, you will be able to hit the ground running applying essential JavaScript to projects at both an architectural as well as a line by line coding level.
