If you are looking to build interactive web pages with JavaScript then I have released a course just for you :)

Learn DOM methods and properties to use JavaScript to make your web page interactive.

This isn't the only course you should ever take on learning to create interactive web pages with JavaScript but it should be your first!

JavaScript has become an essential web technology along with HTML and CSS, as most browsers implement JavaScript. Thus, You must learn JavaScript if you want to get into web development, and you must learn it well if you're planning on being a front-end developer or on using JavaScript for backend development.

What makes JavaScript important?

Here are five reasons:

  • It’s everywhere. It’s seen adoption from large companies (think: LinkedIn, Google, Netflix) that not only decided to use JavaScript, but to rewrite their entire applications using it. This isn’t a tiny investment. It displays a great deal of trust and faith in a language to choose the risk of rewriting an application over using an existing one. These risks are being taken by industry giants, and for good reason.
  • It’s flexible. It’s not just a front-end language. As a back-end language, JavaScript provides great scalability and performance because of its event-driven architecture, more so than many of its competitors from various languages. It also allows for a seamless transition for developers from the back end to make edits on the front end. JavaScript’s adaptability is something that draws more and more people each year. It can provide you with great interactions on the front end, asynchronous operations, and is not bound to any browser or operating system. Its possibilities are endless due to this dynamic and adaptable nature.
  • It’s easy to learn. With the only requirements being a text editor and a browser, anyone can start learning JavaScript. And while learning JavaScript, you’ll interact with HTML and CSS, which are the building blocks of any website.
  • Its community. Because of its popularity, the JavaScript community is heavily populated with experts, novices and resources. New ideas and libraries spring up daily to fix new problems, improve fixes of existing problems or introduce new methods. The community is constantly innovating, and through this JavaScript evolves.
  • It’s in demand. If you want to be a programmer, you need to learn JavaScript. Because it’s so widely used, you will be hard-pressed to find a job listing for a developer that does not require it. It’s the de facto language of the web, other than HTML/CSS of course.
