Look inside

Create dynamic web content and bring your website to life! Code in JavaScript and use AJAX, a set of technologies and techniques that makes designing and maintaining dynamic content faster and easier than ever.

Imagine seamless page updates without a page refresh! Imagine API data requests returning content!

Start by learning how to make AJAX requests using JavaScript coding examples. Then connect to JSON data and external files, and use the XHR object and JavaScript Fetch to make requests to endpoints. You’ll update web page elements with JavaScript and DOM, select page elements, add values, update styling, and much more.And you’ll practice your new skills on a fun project: creating a JavaScript AJAX Quiz Game from JSON data.

AJAX is a set of technologies that makes things happen. This video will show you how to work with AJAX and JavaScript to make things happen on your website. This course includes a PDF Guide with source code and coding examples, tips, resources, and more.
