    The Browser Environment

    The environment that JavaScript runs in — like a browser, or a server, or even an embedded computer — has a fundamental effect on what it can do. In this stage we'll explore the browser environment, and see how JavaScript can change a webpage right before our eyes. 5 steps

    Getting a Handle on the DOM

    The first step of making a web page interactive is grabbing ahold of elements you want the user to interact with. This is called selection. There are a number of ways to select elements on a web page. Let's explore those you are likely to use most often. 11 steps

    Making Changes to the DOM

    Once we've selected an element in the DOM, we can read or affect it. We can replace or change the display of text, for example. Or we can create new nodes and insert them into the DOM. Let's learn about and get some practice with some of these actions. 11 steps

    Responding to User Interaction

    Now we'll get to "teach" an element to behave a certain way when a user interacts with it. For example, we could have a form field turn red if a user enters invalid text. Or a menu could appear if a user clicks on the menu bar. Let's look at these and other behaviors we can set up on a web page. 10 steps

    Traversing the DOM

    You have your hands on one element, but you want to grab another one nearby. You could go all the way back out to the document and call to it from there, but chances are your node already has a reference to it. Let's learn how to get around in, or traverse, the DOM. 11 steps
