Prerequisites and Requirements

We expect that you have some experience programming in another language, such as Python, and can describe concepts like loops, functions and objects. Our Intro to Computer Science and Programming Fundamentals with Python courses are great places to get started.

While we do describe the underlying principles behind basic programming techniques, this course focuses on implementing the principles with JavaScript rather than the principles themselves.

HTML and CSS are not required, however, knowledge of CSS will help you customize your résumé project.

See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.

Why Take This Course

Today, front-end developers work with web designers to create the interactive experiences that make the web the addictive playground we know and love. As the size and influence of the web have expanded, so has the importance of ensuring a website offers users an unforgettable experience.

Perhaps your end goal is to create a HTML5 game, code the front-end for an app idea you have, or maybe you want to use one of the growing set of libraries that let you compile code written in another language or for another platform down to JavaScript. With JavaScript, you can do all these things and more.

Project

You will create an interactive résumé that you can share to the world and show your growing skills at the time.

Having a good résumé is a key component of securing a better job. We'll give you the template styles and code to create a modern and mobile friendly résumé (also called a curriculum vitae/CV outside the United States) that you can modify and customize.
