Required TEXTS

1) A Smarter Way to Learn JavaScript, Mark Myers, ISBN-10: 1497408180; ISBN-13: 978-1497408180

2) A Smarter Way to Learn jQuery, Mark Myers, ISBN-10: 1523986468; ISBN-13: 978-1523986460

If you can afford it, please get the paper editions of the book. Most students find it much easier to work with a print book than moving around between computer screens while trying to view both the book and their code.


Students will be expected to have an active account at Web Hosting for Students (WHFS) for this class. Exceptions will be made only for students with an active account at another hosting provider *if* the student is comfortable giving the instructor Control Panel and FTP access and the instructor verifies that the server is as professional as the WHFS one. The WHFS server is only $25 for a whole year, and can be used for all CAS classes that year, so it is very reasonably priced. Please see this page for information on how to sign up:

Required SOFTWARE:

You can use either a PC or a Mac for this class. JavaScript runs equally well on either platform, and the exercises will work equally well on both types of computers. Your instructor has both a PC and a Mac.

The following (free) programs are required: Firefox, Chrome and an HTML editor. Most students use Brackets for editing their code. Assignment 1 has details about how to install and configure Brackets for the course.

Instructor comments:

DIFFICULTY: This is a challenging course. Expect to spend 12 hours a week or more going through the assignments and doing the projects. Please do not sign up if you do not have this much time available.

PREREQUISITES: CAS 206 or instructor permission. You are expected to be very comfortable creating CSS from scratch (without using a tool that creates it for you), creating a web page with HTML, uploading pages with FTP, creating a web site consisting of multiple pages with links, images, tables, and forms using a web page editor or programmer's editor that works with plain text. This class will be very difficult for you if you do not have this experience.

CHECK-IN REQUIREMENTS: Students must check in to the course by Thursday noon of the first week of class or they may be dropped from the class.
