This introduction to the use of JavaScript is valuable for engineers of all disciplines. You do not need prior knowledge of HTML or JavaScript and do not need to buy or download anything since the core portion of JavaScript is in all browsers. In fact, you do not even need to have an HTML editor. The Notepad program included with Windows can be used to edit JavaScript documents.

With JavaScript, you can make interactive HTML documents. That means you can create applications that can run in your browser. These applications are the focus of this course.

JavaScript can be described as an event-oriented, light-weight programming language which makes it an excellent scripting language for inclusion on HTML pages. In fact, JavaScript is usually embedded directly into an HTML page. With JavaScript you can control the HTML, the browser and the DOM (Document Object Model). Additionally, JavaScript is an "interpreted language" which means the script executes without compilation.

JavaScript is open and cross-platform, so it is not necessary to purchase a software license to use the language.
