Learn how JavaScript supports the framework of Django

Django is a Python web framework that encourages fast development and a clean, pragmatic design.

This comprehensive course will introduce you to the JavaScript language, and will show you how it supports Django’s framework.

Look at the JavaScript language in Django and see how it supports the object-oriented pattern

You’ll take an in-depth look at the JavaScript language and will see how it supports the object-orientated pattern within programming.

You’ll also get insight into the jQuery library; widely used for in-browser manipulation of the Document Object Model (DOM) and event handling, as well as debugging capabilities.

Identify where to use the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) in Django

You’ll also learn about the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), which is commonly used as a syntax to exchange data between code running on the server (or in Django), and code running in the browser (or in JavaScript or jQuery).

Finally, you’ll continue to develop your classified ads application, adding and incorporating features that make use of JavaScript, JQuery, and JSON.
