JavaScript is a key language in web design and web development

JavaScript is a programming language that allows you to send direct commands to web browsers and so it allows you maximum control of your website. JavaScript works hand-in-hand with HTML and CSS in modern web design.

... If you're preparing students for web design today, they should learn at least basic JavaScript.

JavaScript and Web Frameworks

Web design now makes heavy use of pre-packaged code libraries called ‘frameworks’.


Because frameworks make building websites much easier. Many popular web frameworks rely heavily on JavaScript, including the two most popular: Bootstrap and JQuery.

You don’t absolutely need to know JavaScript to be a web designer but at some point, you are guaranteed to be exposed to it in some way. Whether it be because of frameworks, or just basic web design, it makes sense that students understand at least the basics of JavaScript.
