JavaScript Tutorial For Beginners #32 – What is the DOM in JavaScript?

Yo Ninjas, in this JavaScript tutorial for beginners, I’ll be walking you through what the DOM is and how we use it to interact with our web pages.

The DOM stands for Document Object Model and in technical terms, is an application programming interface. But what that really means is that we can use the DOM to go into our HTML code and ‘grab’ hold of elements (nodes) and then alter them via JavaScript.

If you have any questions about the DOM, fire away 🙂
