Programming with HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript (55320)

SS Course: GK821545

Course Overview


This five-day instructor-led is intended for IT professionals interested in becoming client-side web developers. who need to get a jump start on all three technologies. The course includes more than 30 exercises, providing a rapid hands-on introduction to the three major client-side languages: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Students should be prepared to cover a lot of ground quickly.

This course covers the same technologies as the retired Course 20480-C: Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3. Like that course, this course focuses on using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to develop web pages, implement programming logic, define and use variables, perform looping and branching, capture and validate user input, store data, and create well-structured applications. However, this course does not cover the HTML5 APIs covered in 20480.

Students can take this course on any computer with a web browser. Although it s not required, we recommend Visual Studio Code as the editor.
