Overview

This course provides an introduction to HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. This course helps students gain basic HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript programming skills. This course is an entry point into both the Web application and Windows Store apps training paths. The course focuses on using HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript to implement programming logic, define and use variables, perform looping and branching, develop user interfaces, capture and validate user input, store data, and create well-structured application.

 

The lab scenarios in this course are selected to support and demonstrate the structure of various application scenarios. They are intended to focus on the principles and coding components/structures that are used to establish an HTML5 software application.

 

This course uses Visual Studio 2012, running on Windows 8.

 

Objectives

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Explain how to use Visual Studio 2012 to create and run a Web application.
  • Describe the new features of HTML5, and create and style HTML5 pages.
  • Add interactivity to an HTML5 page by using JavaScript.
  • Create HTML5 forms by using different input types, and validate user input by using HTML5 attributes and JavaScript code.
