Welcome to the Front End Web Developer Nanodegree Program

Course 2 3 weeks

CSS, Website Layout, Website Components

In this part, you’ll create a multi-page blog website, using best practices for content and page styling with HTML and CSS. Practice using responsive layouts, Flexbox, and CSS Grid to create the structure and design for your own blog.

Lesson 1


Learn the basics of HTML and start using different elements to build out the basic structure of webpages.

Lesson 2


Learn the basics of CSS and start using different properties to create appealing layouts and styling for all types of use cases.

Lesson 3

CSS Flexbox

Build on your CSS knowledge by diving into Flexbox, a one-dimensional layout technique for helping organize items within your webpage.

Lesson 4

CSS Grid

Extend your CSS skills even further with CSS Grid, which allows you to organize in two dimensions with rows and columns. Grid can work with Flexbox to lay out pages just like on the modern web.

Lesson 5

Start with a basic Grid-based layout for a blog, and learn how to use media queries to build a responsive layout for device types of all sizes!

Course 3 3 weeks

JavaScript & the DOM

Expand your understanding of JavaScript syntax and learn about how we can programmatically interact with the DOM. By the end of this course, you'll be able to create or revise content and interact with browser events. In the project, you will build a landing page that combines your skills with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS to update and control the page and create a dynamic user experience.

Lesson 1

Introduction to JavaScript & the DOM

In this lesson you'll get a preview of what you will learn in this course as you continue on your JavaScript journey. You'll also get a sneak peek at the project you'll build at the end of the course.

Lesson 2

JavaScript Syntax

With this major update to the JavaScript language, a number of syntax improvements have been added. In this lesson, you'll learn to improve your JavaScript code with these syntax updates.

Lesson 3

The Document Object Model

The Document Object Model (DOM) allows developers to interact with and control the rendered page. You'll learn how the DOM is formed, what Nodes and Elements are, and how to select items from the DOM.

Lesson 4

Creating Content with JavaScript

Static is boring, so we'll use JavaScript and DOM methods to create new page content, update existing content, and delete content. You'll also learn how to check and set the styling of page elements.

Lesson 5

Working with Browser Events

Hundreds of events fire every time you interact with a page. Learn what an event is, how to listen for an event and respond to it, what data is included with an event, and the phases of an event.

Lesson 6


Learn how to measure the code you write to make sure it's performing efficiently and how reflow and repaint affect performance. Learn how to harness the JavaScript Event loop for performance gains.
