Unwrapping some content...
You will discover how to write games like "Find Buried Treasure", "Hangman", and "Snake." Can you imagine writing your own game? How fun would that be?
You will learn how to:
* Create functions to organize and reuse your code
*Write and modify HTML to create dynamic web pages
*Use the DOM and jQuery to make web pages react to user input (because the computer does not have a brain of its own and can only respond to a human's instructions)
*Use the Canvas element to draw and animate graphics (which is perfect for me because I always wanted to be Walt Disney's daughter but now can be Walt Disney himself)
*Programme real user-controlled games with collision detection and score keeping
