Javascript Specialist Designation

Become Javascript Certified! Earn Your Javascript Specialist Designation

Javascript has become the most import language you can learn.

Years ago, you could produce a web site with HTML alone. Now, Javascript is a critical technology that makes not just interactive web sites-- but full web applications. Modern sites don't just display data but generally help users complete tasks such as making a reservation or buy an item.

Javascript is a critical part of these transactions. Handling everything from dynamic screen content to interacting with remote servers, every developer needs Javascript.

And, Javascript is not just a web language any more. Due to related technologies like Node and Phone Gap Javascript can now be used in web development (client and server side) and mobile development.

This is only part of the reason that Javascript is THE language to know.

FACT: Javascript is the most desired skill among those who hire new (junior) developers.

(This means that Javascript skills-- and certification-- may just be your key to a job).

If you're reading this we don't have to sell you upon becoming a developer. You already know it's one of the most lucrative (and fastest growing) career tracks out there-- no degree required.

What Will I Learn to Do with Javascript?

Javascript is a powerful language.

Here are just a few of things you can do with Javascript--

  • Create applications that are constantly updated via a web service. Stock market, weather, and transportation apps work with web services to provide users with current information.
  • Create apps that take advantage of the HTML5 canvas which allows data visualizations, animations and even gaming!
  • Create applications with reactive interfaces that provide users with an optimized experience.

It's tasks like this that make Javascript critical for developers. Javascript is essential to just about any project that appears on the web or in mobile.

This is where you can separate yourself from the average developer.
