Google's Polymer.js framework for software development gives extra functionality to Web Components. This course will introduce you to this up-and-coming, element-focused development approach and how you can apply it to your own projects.
Polymer.js is a promising framework by Google, offering software developers the ability to use Web Components with extra functionalities such as data binding. In Getting Started with Polymer.js, you will be introduced this framework. First, you will learn why Polymer.js is so important to modern web development. You'll also learn how to create and style your own custom elements. Finally, you'll discover how to use data binding and the element's DOM structure, as well as how to use events and behaviors. When you're finished with this course, you will understand the whole Polymer.js documentation and will be ready to use it to develop better software applications.

Your First Element Hi, this is Bill Stavroulakis, and welcome to the module of this course Your First Element. In this module, we'll analyze an existing native element and then create our first custom element with polymer js. Review the process of separating an element declaration from our page and reuse it. Check out the way where we can declare the element as a class. Go over the lifecycle callbacks of our element. And lastly extend existing native elements.
Properties and Data Binding Hi, this is Bill Stavroulakis, and welcome to the module of this course on properties and data binding. In this module, we'll go over the difficult but important concept of data binding, analyze our element's properties, and observers. Lastly, we'll look into examples for special templates, and ways to sort and filter data.
Reuse and Styling Hi, this is Bill Stavroulakis, and welcome to the module of this course on reuse and styling. In this module we'll go over the HTML and DOM structure created by Polymer to render, generate and encapsulate our elements. We'll analyze ways to decouple our element structure with its content, and lastly, go over styling and theming within our elements.
Events and Behaviors Hi. This is Bill Stavroulakis, and in this module we'll talk about Events and Behaviors. Until now, we've certainly covered a lot of ground on Polymer's Basics. There is one last aspect, which are Events. How can we declare them? What kind of events do exist? How do these events work? Also with Behaviors, we can re-use prototype definitions. So, let us dive in.
