In this episode, Daniel and Justin give a general overview of what to expect in the upcoming Intro to Web Development series. They cover topics like who is the intended audience, what the scope of the series will cover, and what are some specific topics that will be addressed.

[SOUND] In this segment we're gonna give you a quick glimpse into what you're gonna expect from our upcoming Intro to Web Development series. Justin, would you be so kind as to give us a general overview of some of the topics we're going to encounter in that series? >> That's a great question, Daniel. The first thing we'll gonna do is take a look at the browser environment. What's available or provided to us by the browser, such as the browser object, the window object, the document object, all of these things that we can use in order to interact with these Web pages. Also, we're gonna look at events. Events within the browser, like clicks, and transitions, and hovers, and mouse enters, as well as how can I store temporary pieces of information within the browser? And then we're gonna take a quick aside and actually build a few projects, seeing how all of those culminate into something fairly meaningful. >> Awesome, you said a lot of big words in there, so that assumes there might be some knowledge level that we might have, or we might need as the people that are gonna watch it. Can you give us an idea of who the intended audience is? >> So, the intended audience, you should definitely have some familiarity with, HTML, CSS, as well as a decent understanding of JavaScript. Including just basic things like variables, loops, arrays, certain data structures, and it would be nice if I throw in some new features of JavaScript. You should probably know a little bit of those new features known as ECMAScript or ECMAScript 2015, just because they make our code a little cleaner, a little nicer. >> Excellent, now a lot of our episodes and series that we create here at ITProTV lend themselves toward certification. But some of them are also just technical skills that you might be wanting to know about. Which one of those columns would this fall under? >> So this is definitely a technical skills class. There's no intrinsic certification other than your own kind of advancement of knowledge. So if you wanna know more, definitely join us there. >> All right, well, if that sounds like something that might be interesting to you, we look forward to seeing you in the upcoming episodes.
