Intro to JavaScript

Swearingen Engineering Center, 2A17

Lex Whalen

This week I'll be giving a talk about how JavaScript is used on the web. I'll go over the basics of how you can use JS to modify objects in the DOM, and likely touch some AJAX or other fancy features. As I typically use JavaScript with Django, we may look at how these different things can combine to make something cooler. I'll show a few projects I am a part of, and explain how common things like pagination are done.
