OVERVIEW

‣ HTML and CSS are enough to be able to construct simple web pages, but to have more complex functionality -- for example, storing user data -- it’s necessary to create a full application. 

‣ In this training programme, students get practice designing and building their own custom front-end applications and plugging those applications into 3rd-party APIs on the web.

PREREQUISITES

‣ This course requires a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS in order to enroll.

IDEAL FOR

‣ Aspiring developers looking to get their first real experience with web development.

‣ Technical product managers looking to create fully-functional MVP applications and further develop their tech vocabularies.

‣ Designers and marketers who want to be able to add greater levels of interactivity to their mockups and landing pages.

OUTCOMES

‣ How to work with JavaScript, jQuery, the browser and the DOM.

‣ The fundamentals of JavaScript, such that you can more easily learn how to work with JavaScript frameworks and libraries.

‣ The fundamentals of object-oriented programming, such that you can more easily learn another object-oriented language.

‣ How to consume data from APIs and persist data using a back-end-as-a-service provider like Firebase.

‣ How to build a modern, single-page application using common design patterns.

Course Outline

Unit 1: JavaScript Fundamentals
  • Learn the basics of JavaScript and object-oriented programming by working with JavaScript on the command line. 

  • Create a simple chat bot that responds to user input.

Unit 2: The Browser and APIs
  • Use JavaScript to add interactivity to web pages using the DOM and other browser APIs. Build an application that interacts with third-party JSON APIs from services like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Unit 3: Persisting Data (and Other Advanced Topics)
  • Create an authenticated API using the Firebase platform and perform CRUD operations on it from a front-end app. Learn advanced JavaScript concepts like prototypal inheritance and closures.

Unit 4: Final Project
  • Design and create a single-page application of your choice. It can be a blog users can comment on, an app that allows users to search for social media posts, or even an application that logs users geolocations
