Transcript from the "Introduction to the DOM" Lesson
>> Brian Holt: Hopefully you've de-melted your mind, and we're going to come back and melt it again. But the good news here is, we're going to get back into browser. We're going to get back into the more creative stuff here, because now you have the foundations of programming, right? I'm not really gonna teach you much more about foundational kind of stuff about programming.
[00:00:23] The rest of is gonna be more practical applied, taking stuff like on websites and adding interactivity and behavior and all the fun stuff, right. So, the first thing we're gonna talk about is the document object model that no one can remember. So just called the DOM because that's what it's called.
[00:00:42] So, so far we've been using console.log to show like our work, right like we've been here in the console. And let's see, doing stuff in here, right, and saying like console.log 5 plus, where my plus, 5, and stuff like that, right? But now, we're going to actually be interacting with the browser itself.
Those are going to be like that's what the DOM is for. So,
>> Brian Holt: Yeah, let's talk a little bit about this Internet fundamentals course that Jen taught, but just kinda to recap how a browser actually works. Whenever you load an HTML document, I go to index.html or dom.html in this particular website, it goes and hits the server.
You can put it on GoDaddy, you can put it on Bluehost, there's a bunch of different hosting solutions out there. So, I guess it's key to recognize here is that you can have multiple files they can be loaded in here.
>> Brian Holt: That was a point of confusion for me here, so that's why I kind of put this thing in here.
