JavaScript is an essential language for any web designer to master. But many of the courses and tutorials you'll find on JavaScript are aimed at developers, not designers.

So in this article, we've put together five courses that will teach you the essentials of JavaScript from a web designer's perspective, starting with the basics of the language and working up to optimization, automation, and more.

1. JavaScript for Web Designers

This foundational course teaches you the basics of JavaScript from a web designer’s perspective. You'll learn about JavaScript variables, data types, and loops, before working toward more complex notions such as functions, selectors, and events. Along the way, you’ll build some examples that are geared towards what you as a web designer might face on a daily basis.

2. 6 Handy JavaScript Plugins for Web Designers

Now that you've learned the basics of JavaScript, in this course you'll learn to save time by using plugins. Discover six plugins for vanilla JavaScript that will take the guesswork out of complex tasks like creating progress bars, formatting inputs, lazy loading images, and more.

3. The Designer’s Guide to JavaScript Optimization

In this short course geared towards web designers, you'll learn some easy-to-implement techniques for making your JavaScript, and thus your websites, run smoothly.

4. Optimize Your Website Without AMP

Continuing with the optimization theme, in this course you'll learn how to do without AMP, Google’s collection of plug-and-play code that helps optimize sites to load and run faster. You'll take an existing AMP-based site and convert it to use non-AMP equivalents, giving you methods to make your sites run blazing fast, but where the optimization techniques are those you decide on for yourself.

5. The Web Designer’s Guide to Gulp

Gulp is a JavaScript automation tool that can be of great help to any web designer, but it can be intimidating for beginners. In this course you’re going to learn what Gulp is, how to set it up, and how to use it for creating an awesome front-end workflow—even as a beginner.
