GeekSpeak: Javascript

Javascript makes webpages (and other content) more interactive without requiring intensive programming expertise.

Pages can be created with just HTML and CSS, but Javascript helps these building blocks, called “objects,” come alive. You create functions that can manipulate and enhance those objects to make web pages more dynamic, interactive and accessible. 

Javascript is also used in PDF documents, site-specific browsers, and desktop widgets. Some examples of Javascript functions are:

  • pop up boxes
  • drop down menus/roll overs
  • displaying the current date and time to various users depending on where they are and what browser they are using
In my presentation, I discuss more about the origins of Javascript and its other uses.
