learn to make a web-based game using javascript!

An introduction to JavaScript from a GameDev perspective. Starting with a simple 20 line Etch-a-Sketch style program. Students quickly want to change from arrow keys to WASD. Adding a clear command suddenly turns drawing into animation.

More advanced concepts are introduced when the students encounter the problems that they would solve, making them solutions instead of complexities.
