JavaScript is known as the "language that powers the web" and was designed to add a level of interactivity to any web page. It is one of the most important programming languages along with HTML and CSS.

This is an introductory course to JavaScript, starting with the basics—syntax and variables—through to concepts such as conditionals, arrays, loops, and events, using a memory game which you build on step by step following the guidance of Javier Usobiaga, web designer and founder of Swwweet studio with more than a decade's experience in the field.

If this is your first crack at web design, it would be a good idea to take Javier Usobiaga's course Introduction to Responsive Web Development with HTML and CSS .

before starting this one.

Get to know Javier a little better. He talks about his work and biggest influences in the world of design and web development.

Gain a better understanding of JavaScript—what it's used for and why it's one of the foundational web programming languages, alongside HTML and CSS. Learn to configure your code editor to work more comfortably, then see how to incorporate JavaScript into a web page.

Your first contact with JavaScript involves variables, functions, events, and loops, which you learn to write along with other basic complementary JavaScript features.

From here, begin the design of your memory game, starting with the array, or list of values, to represent the pack of cards for your game.

Move on to add events and random card draws to make things a little more difficult.

Next, it's time to add the first interactive element to your memory game: marking the selected pair of cards as either a match or incorrect. Gradually incorporate more functions relating to a specific part of the script, such as "match" and "incorrect" among others, and also manage feedback for each of the results.

To make things even harder, add a timer, difficulty levels, sound effects, and additional details to the interface.

Finish up going through the different complementary resource libraries that JavaScript has to offer including jQuery, React, and Vue.

What is this course's project?

Create an update for the memory game created throughout the course, including new rules, bug fixes, and effects.

Web Designer

Javier Usobiaga has been a web designer and front-end developer for over a decade and is cofounder of Swwweet studio alongside Marta Armada.

He also enjoys his role teaching web design workshops and at prestigious schools like Elisava and IDEP.

Javier understands the web in its totality, not only how beautiful it can be on screen, but also how user-friendly it is across all devices and in different contexts.

In his own words, "how fast a page loads and responds is every bit as important as the aesthetic, and something that is often overlooked in our line of work."
