Before beginning our journey to learn HTML and CSS it is important to understand the differences between the two languages, their syntax, and some common terminology.

Terminology, Syntax, & Introduction - A Beginners Guide to HTML & CSS

As an overview, HTML is a hyper text markup language created to give content structure and meaning. CSS, also known as cascading style sheets, is a presentation language created to give content style and appearance. To put this into laymen terms, HTML determines the structure and meaning of content on a web page while CSS determines the style and appearance of this content. The two languages are independent of one another. CSS should not reside within an HTML document and vice versa. Taking this concept a bit further, the HTML p element is used to display a paragraph of text on a web page.

This mix of features makes it a multi-paradigm language, supporting object-oriented,[6] imperative, and functional[1][7] programming styles. JavaScript has been standardized in the ECMAScript language specification. History[edit] Beginnings at Netscape[edit] JavaScript was originally developed by Brendan Eich, while working for Netscape Communications Corporation. Although it was developed under the name Mocha, the language was officially called LiveScript when it first shipped in beta releases of Netscape Navigator 2.0 in September 1995, but it was renamed JavaScript[10] when it was deployed in the Netscape browser version 2.0B3.[11] The change of name from LiveScript to JavaScript roughly coincided with Netscape adding support for Java technology in its Netscape Navigator web browser.

JavaScript Tutorial - Lesson 1

Most web pages that claim interactivity really mean you can click on hyperlinks to go to new pages. Even web pages that have CGI scripts behind them don’t really seem all that interactive: Fill out a form, hit the Submit button, and wait. It’s more like throwing bottles into an ocean and hoping for a meaningful reply. Happily, we have JavaScript. With JavaScript, images can swap when you move a cursor over them, form elements can influence each other on the fly, and calculations can be made without having to resort to a CGI script. One of the best things about JavaScript is that you can do a great deal with very little programming. Even though it’s simple to work with, JavaScript is a complete programming language, so as you learn more complicated JavaScript, you’re also learning the basics of computer programming. Advanced JavaScript Tutorial - Lesson 1. Hello, and welcome to the Advanced JavaScript Tutorial, where I finish off what I started in the basic JavaScript Tutorial.

Advanced JavaScript Tutorial - Lesson 1

In the second installment – This Time We Mean It – I’ll be covering the finer points of JavaScript that I passed over back in Part I. I’ll also introduce you to some of the fancier aspects of JavaScript and the tips and lowdown that will allow you to build real multimedia applications. As we head into the JavaScript nitty-gritty, I’m going to assume that you’ve covered the following: Assigning values to variables If-then statements For and while loops Writing your own functions Opening and manipulating windows Reading and writing to HTML forms Using arrays Conducting image swaps Any of these sound unfamiliar?

But in my opinion, it's also the best javascript multipurpose SVG library when it comes to animation, interaction and above all for binding data to graphics. The community is very responsive, source code is very clean and the API is well written. There is not a lot of tutorials to learn D3 yet. But they are very good introductions and you can find plenty of examples packaged with the source code or hidden in forums. Simple example. D3 Tutorials.

Missions: Using Git: Setup Git. Git is a version control system (VCS) created by Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux kernel. Git is known as a 'distributed” VCS, or DVCS. This means that each user's copy of the code is a fully working repository and includes all previous commit information. Rather than connecting to a remote server as you would with Subversion or CVS, users can work productively offline, choosing to later sync their changes with a remote repository or create a patch file.
