Client Side Programming

JavaScript is a programming language that is used for client side programming. This is a technique which speeds up online tasks by getting the client computer (i.e. the computer you are using) to do more of the work. Instead of repeatedly requesting information from the server your computer downloads the information it needs in one go. From your perspective this means that everything runs faster and smoother.

This week's task involved writing a JavaScript program. The aim was to create a program which would ask users if they were interested in news or sports. If they request 'news' they should then be asked which part of the UK they are interested in. If they specify 'sport' they are given a selection of sports to choose from. In all cases they should then be sent to the relevant section of the BBC website.
