About the Course

Do you realize that the only functionality of a web application that the user directly interacts with is through the web page? Implement it poorly and, to the user, the server-side becomes irrelevant! Today’s user expects a lot out of the web page: it has to load fast, expose the desired service, and be comfortable to view on all devices: from a desktop computers to tablets and mobile phones. In this course, we will learn the basic tools that every web page coder needs to know. We will start from the ground up by learning how to implement modern web pages with HTML and CSS. We will then advance to learning how to code our pages such that its components rearrange and resize themselves automatically based on the size of the user’s screen. You’ll be able to code up a web page that will be just as useful on a mobile phone as on a desktop computer. No “pinch and zoom” required! Last but certainly not least, we will get a thorough introduction to the most ubiquitous, popular, and incredibly powerful language of the web: Javascript. Using Javascript, you will be able to build a fully functional web application that utilizes Ajax to expose server-side functionality and data to the end user....

Very great lesson. I learned a lot from it.

The assignment is delicately prepared and of a suitable difficulty.

I recommend to watch the code after every lecture or you may get a little lost.

Very helpful course, well structured, great teacher! Content is quite outdated. The last chapter about JavaScript including AJAX could have been explained better in my opinion.

The way of teaching and assignments is good but better to give project as a steps of assignments so that we will get overview/confident about build a project.

It's a great course but it's severely outdated. I'm glad it's getting updated soon. Still, it's great for the basics and it gives a solid foundation!

Absolutely wonderful course to get start with Front End technologies.

I feel AJAX and DOM part was bit fast and could have bit better.

Little bit outdated and I would expect more hands on coding but still very usefull in 2021. Never seems to be too difficult

كوررس ممتاز كمقدمة في هذا المجال ولكن اعتقد لو لم يتم ادخال json و ajax افضل لان الشرح لم يكن كافي لفهمها بالنسبة لي

HTML, CSS were very good clean direct and informational without trying to overexplain material. Javascript section needs major improvement. The speaker was overly wordy in their attempt to explain simple content like 'Arrays' 'Closures' 'Objects' as a few examples. The presenter should follow a more linear approach to explaining and to their visual examples. Often the presenter would bounce back and forth in a futile attempt to sound more astute. Sometimes less is more. The same could be seen in their way of presenting certain examples with jumping back and forth between examples in efforts to clarify any and all possabilities of how to code the topic being discussed. One keyword was used during this course lecture and that word was 'verbose' the javascript portion felt too wordy/verbose. This along with what seemed like poor audio quality caused a few sections to be reviewed more than once for clarity . Course needs ES6 material as well. Although this course is recommended for a good place to begin I would much rather prefer the javascript straight forward and linear style of presentation that can be observed from Codecademy Javascript Beginner/Intermediate Course(s).

Thank you to Yaakov for his hard work on this presentation.

I think this course is great at providing insight into using twitter bootstrap and its framework along with CSS. I found many parts to be very confusing as it focused on the overall picture and not explained thoroughly (especially during the JS portion of the course). On that note, there was not a lot of JS content and no indication that we should've had prior knowledge of JS (even though it was later mentioned in the 4th or 5th week of the course). With all that being said, the course was helpful as an introduction into web design, I liked the structure of the projects and even though I struggled with them, I almost wish there were more of the assignments/putting the code to use rather than watching what to do and trying to figure out the pieces at the end. I applaud the efforts of the John Hopkins Team!

The courses in this catalog need to be revamped as they're out of date. And some of the terms and methodologies used in some of the programming languages have become redundant.
