About This Class

Welcome to the Javascript fun series! 

For web design or development, there is 3 must know technologies, HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

The main aim of the Javascript fun series is to take your knowledge of these 3 (only a little is required!), and put them into practice by building a series of educational, yet fun projects show you exactly how they work perfectly together. Working on projects and solving problems is a great way to learn.

The project we will build in this course will be a Javascript Tip Calculator.

All the required tools are free to download, I will be using the following:

Visual Studio Code Text Editor: https://code.visualstudio.com​

Chrome Web Browser: https://www.google.co.uk/chrome/browser

We begin by creating the user interface with HTML. The we apply styling using CSS. 

Then we add Javascript, this is where the real magic happens! 

 

You will learn things such as:

  • Creating HTML interfaces
  • Styling with CSS
  • Incorporating Javascript and linking external files
  • Variables
  • Functions
  • Event handlers
  • Manipulating the DOM
  • performing calculations and storing in variables
  • String concatenation
  • Converting values to a number
  • Setting the number of decimal places of a number
  • And much more!

So if you are looking to move on and put your skills into practice using with real projects, take this course now!

Excellent course, the instructor explain every bit of the project very clearly and to the point.
This is a nice little project for Javascript beginners, but it's very valuable in the JS realm as a whole.
