When surfing the web, you see many things. Cute kittens, cool photos, and, well, much more. But sometimes eye-catching imagery, animation, or interactivity on a website grabs your full attention. Presentation is everything on a website. But how does a website have such dynamic functionality? The answer is JavaScript. But what is it?

JavaScript is a scripting language that’s used to enhance HTML pages. There are certain things that HTML is great at, but not others, for example animations or slideshows. It needs JavaScript to make that possible. This course will fill you in on what JavaScript actually is and what it’s capable of doing.
