Welcome to the Building Blocks of the Internet, a seven-part course that looks at the fundamental technologies that make up websites and web pages. This course gives those who are new to web technologies an introduction to the following:

  • HTML
  • CSS

  • Network protocols focussed on HTTP
  • Network protocol security

You will learn what these technologies are, how they work and how to test them. So you can:

  • Work with these technologies to build your own testing project.
  • Quickly analyse web pages and test individual parts of a site.
  • Understand the underlying principles of the web that are used not just for web pages but in popular automation tools such as Selenium WebDriver.

From its humble beginnings, JavaScript has grown to be one of the dominant languages in software development. Originally used to create animations, process information and trigger events, we can now use JavaScript to create serverless single-page applications, desktop applications, APIs and automated checks. JavaScript is a powerful language to use but getting started with it can be overwhelming. Beginners to JavaScript have a lot of questions: What is JavaScript? What is NodeJS? and how do they differ? Why is JavaScript written differently to languages such as C# and Java? How do you use JavaScript to solve testing problems

In ‘Introduction to JavaScript’, you will learn the answers to these questions and more by learning the basic rules and flows that make up JavaScript. You will be taught about the JavaScript ecosystem, how JavaScript behaves and the syntax of JavaScript all with a view to getting you up and running creating apps to support your testing.
