JavaScript Projects for Kids

By: Syed Omar Faruk Towaha

Overview of this book

JavaScript is the most widely-used programming language for web development and that's not all! It has evolved over the years and is now being implemented in an array of environments from websites to robotics. Learning JavaScript will help you see the broader picture of web development. This book will take your imagination to new heights by teaching you how to work with JavaScript from scratch. It will introduce you to HTML and CSS to enhance the appearance of your applications. You’ll then use your skills to build on a cool Battleship game! From there, the book will introduce you to jQuery and show you how you can manipulate the DOM. You’ll get to play with some cool stuff using Canvas and will learn how to make use of Canvas to build a game on the lines of Pacman, only a whole lot cooler! Finally, it will show you a few tricks with OOP to make your code clean and will end with a few road maps on areas you can explore further.

In this chapter, we built a complete game and played it. We also played a better version of the game we have built. All you need to remember is that you must know the logic behind all the code that we previously discussed. You are given the source code of the better version of the game with this chapter. I hope that you will study the code and write your own Battleship game. We used a jquery.js JavaScript file on our improved version of the Battleship. The jquery.js file has a lot of lines of code (We will discuss this in Chapter 6, Exploring the Benefits of jQuery).

If you master all the code that we discussed in this chapter, we can now move to the next chapter.
