Let me share my new front-end web development secrets with you
What this course covers?
This course is Course 2 of 2
This course is the second and final course of a 2-part program. The reason I have done this is that Course 1 provides everything you need to start coding dynamic sites by yourself. It gives you the sound fundamentals and practicals regarding the DOM. It can be taken alone (you don’t have to do both courses) to achieve your goals. You will emerge from Course 2 with a solid understanding and practical experience of working with events in the DOM. Course 2 provides a whole different world of fun with amazing practical examples that will captivate you and catapult you to the next level and set you well on your way to becoming a true Grandmaster in front-end web development.
In this course you’ll learn more about front-end web development, by working with events in the Document Object Model.
Why this course? Why do you need to know about events in the DOM?
If you’ve ever wondered how you can add animation (and life) to a page, then you need to understand how events work in the DOM. We use the DOM to allow users to interact with our app. It doesn’t have to be annoying interaction either – simple things like giving the user the ability to ADD/EDIT/DELETE/UPDATE contents on your page, for example, requires interaction with the DOM.
This course starts off with understanding what an event is. What are the 2 most important things when it comes to events? What is the difference between an event listener and an event handler? From there, you’ll start exploring the different ways you can add events to your code. You’ll learn simple, yet very powerful strategies to ‘listen’ for events on your web page and then interact with the page when those events happen.
We don’t stop here, but get into more advanced things like learning about how an event travels in the DOM (capturing vs bubbling), which leads us to an even more important topic of … wait for it … event delegation. And this is only the tip of the iceberg. We go into many other things like DOM extensions, object hierarchy and a bunch of other stuff.
Knowledge of the DOM is incredibly useful for understanding how your webpage can be improved.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to “speak” and “walk” DOM by gaining an understanding of how you can manipulate it in meaningful and practical ways. We dig deeper in every lecture, and this course has many bonus lectures which extend your knowledge base and test your skills.
*** The most important Web Development course on Udemy ***
Successful programmers know more than rote learning a few lines of code. They also know the fundamentals of how events work on your website behind the scenes. If you’re wanting to become a full stack developer, you need to know how to work with various events in the DOM. You need to know what an event is, how to listen for it, and more importantly, how to react to events when they happen.
I want you to become a successful front-end programming Grandmaster.
I want you to be able to apply what your learn in this course to your webpage.
This course is perfect for you.
Hi there, my name is Clyde and together we’re going to learn how successful web developers can create whizbang websites that are dynamic and engaging!
The root to understanding how to be a professional front-end web developer is understanding the Document Object Model and applying it to practical situations. We’re going to practice and learn and emerge confident to tackle any challenges modern programs and websites throw at us.
After completing a few university degrees, and post graduate studies, I developed a fascination for web design and software languages. For several years I have immersed myself in this. I spent a fair bit on top courses and went on to apply the knowledge practically. I recognized gaps in some of the courses I’ve taken and hence my course teaches what I wish I was taught. My intention is to share the knowledge with you in an easy to follow manner, so that we can benefit together. You benefit form learning, and I from sharing in your success.
This course is for beginners and for intermediates.
A unique view
Understanding the DOM is a vast topic. To get you up to speed, I’ve spent months thinking about where to focus content and how to deliver it to you in the best possible way.
You will learn “why” things work and not just “how”. Understanding advanced topics within the DOM (like event types, capturing, bubbling, delegation, host vs native objects, etc.) is important as it will give you infinite possibilities. Armed with this knowledge, you’ll be able to create applications that update the data of the page without needing a refresh. You will be able to create apps that are customizable by the user. You can even allow the user to drag, move, and delete elements. Can you begin to see how important the DOM is?
How is this course different?
There are lots of great courses that focus on web development. Pity they never get into the detail about how the Document Object Model works behind the scenes – a skill that every full-stack developer needs to master.
In this Part 2 course, I focus on the more advanced topics of true web development in the front end. This includes understanding what events are, looking at object hierarchy, understanding the different event types, what capturing and bubbling is, and how you can use the concept of event bubbling to streamline your code and make your job of creating dynamic websites easier.
Practice makes perfect
Theory is theory … but there’s nothing like getting behind your computer and typing in code. That’s why we will be coding, laughing and pulling out our hair together as we code real life websites and exercises during this course.
I love practical examples, which is why we build simple pages and analyze the DOM together.
This course is FULL of practical examples, challenges, and we even build an entire project website from start-to-finish (yep, this includes building the HTML and CSS together too).
Is this course for you?
It doesn’t matter where you are in your web development journey. It’s suitable for all levels.
Still unsure? If you fit in any of these categories then this course is perfect for you:
Student #2: You want to know how successful developers build dynamic websites that engage with the user and put them ahead of the competition.
Student #3: You want to gain a solid understanding of front-end web development.
Student #5: You know a little what the Document Object Model is, but have little knowledge about how events work behind the scenes, and how to practically implement knowing about these events in your own applications.
Student #6: You have taken other courses in web development but just don’t feel like you’ve grasped front-end development.
