Programming Foundations with JavaScript, HTML and CSS

About this course: Learn foundational programming concepts (e.g., functions, for loops, conditional statements) and how to solve problems like a programmer. In addition, learn basic web development as you build web pages using HTML, CSS, JavaScript. By the end of the course, will create a web page where others can upload their images and apply image filters that you create. After completing this course, you will be able to: 1. Think critically about how to solve a problem using programming; 2. Write JavaScript programs using functions, for loops, and conditional statements; 3. Use HTML to construct a web page with paragraphs, divs, images, links, and lists; 4. Add styles to a web page with CSS IDs and classes; and 5. Make a web page interactive with JavaScript commands like alert, onClick, onChange, adding input features like an image canvas, button, and slider.

Who is this class for: This course is for anyone interested in taking their first step toward a career in computer programming. Learners with no prior experience are encouraged to take this course! In addition, this is the first course of the Java Programming and Software Engineering Fundamentals Specialization, providing learners the programming fundamentals they will need to successfully complete the course series and the web development portion of the capstone project .
