Mastering JavaScript and JQuery Essentials is a comprehensive, hands-on course 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. The training will guide students through a balanced mixture of theory and practical labs to gain core JavaScript development skills and have them explore its related technologies through to the use of tools and libraries to ease the development of advanced web applications. This course also covers jQuery and provides practical and hands-on experience with the preferred JavaScript library for building rich web applications. If you are building for the web, learning jQuery will change the way you write JavaScript, working across multiple browsers and platforms. Course attendees will be able to hit the ground running right after class, applying essential JavaScript to projects at both an architectural as well as a line by line coding level.

Skills Gained

Working within in a dynamic, hands-on learning environment, guided by our expert team, attendees will:

  • Become both familiar with the language and confident enough to work with it in any context
  • Learn enough of the DOM API to bend it to your will
  • Make communication between the browser and your server possible
  • Understand and effectively leverage closures
  • Understand how JavaScript's object model differs from the model classical object-oriented programming languages
  • Learn what jQuery is and how to add it to your applications
  • Use jQuery to select complex sets of elements from the DOM
  • Develop rich web pages that respond to user interaction
  • Interact with your server-side code using Ajax
  • Explore a wide variety of plugins and learn how to write your own
  • Test your applications to make sure your JavaScript is as solid as the rest of your code

I thought the labs and content were helpful in understanding the services associated with devops

This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.

Tommy was a great instructor. We relied on this class to develop our understanding, and we were very happy with the result.

The format of the course was nicely structured, it was interactive and the labs really helped me understand the material on a deeper level.
