In website development, DOM stands for Document Object Model. It is a programming interface that allows us to create, change, or remove elements from a website document. DOM manipulation is when you use JavaScript to add, remove, and modify elements of a website. It is very common in web development.

We just published a course on the YouTube channel that will teach you the basics of DOM manipulation with JavaScript. CodeLab developed this course.

In the first part of the course, you will learn about the basic features of a website DOM and the JavaScript commands you can use to manipulate the DOM. In the second part of the course, you will use what you have learned to create practical examples ranging from beginner to advanced.
