Intro to JavaScript

Next semester, I am taking an Introduction to JavaScript class. The class looks pretty easy. I need some down time as I continue to process the topics learned in last semester's Java course.

Today I picked up the textbook for my JavaScript class. The topics really do look introductory. I read the first two chapters to get ahead for class. They covered some of the history of JavaScript. I learned how to embed JavaScript in HTML. Also reviewed how to put JavaScript in a CDATA block to allow the XHTML to validate.

The book went through some examples to make the JavaScript spit out HTML. We also learned how to include external JavaScript files. I would like to have some hands-on assignments where I write some JavaScript code. Let's hope the course instructor gives us some homework or something.
