Web Mastery With JavaScript

by John Valance

While PHP and server-side languages are essential to web programming, these days JavaScript is an 
equally essential skill for any professional web programmer. Users have come to expect highly
 sophisticated web applications, far beyond what HTML and PHP can deliver. In order to develop these modern web and mobile applications, one must have a fair mastery of JavaScript. 

So what is it? Not to be confused with Java, which typically runs on the server, JavaScript typically runs in
 the browser and allows you to create scripts that can control the browser experience after a web page has been downloaded from the server. This off-loads processing from the server and allows web applications to utilize some of the features associated with PC applications, such as a rich user interface 
and sub-second response times.
This session will introduce you to the concepts, capabilities and syntax of JavaScript, and help you
 understand how you might use JavaScript in your web applications. You will learn about using JavaScript 
to validate input forms and react to browser events such as page load, button clicks, mouse movement
 and keystrokes. You will also see how JavaScript can be used to change the content and appearance of 
web pages without reloading the entire page. It will also introduce some of the more advanced concepts
 of object oriented JavaScript and JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and 
XML), and JavaScript frameworks, such as jQuery, which greatly simplify JavaScript programming tasks.
