I'm new to programming JavaScript - taking my first class now. I have been designing in HTML for quite some time. Yes, Designing, not Developing. I was wondering if it's possible to create an image slider that responds to user interaction (user control) using JavaScript? Orrr, would I need to learn a more powerful programming language, like PHP?

Any suggestions?

PHP runs on the server it would not help in any way of building user interaction on the clientside. PHP is not more powerful ;)

PHP runs on the server as a templating mechanism to format the HTML page -- which can contain JavaScript, by the way -- to send to the browser.

PHP and JavaScript in no way compete, and it cannot be said that one is more powerful than the other as they are two tools that serve very different purposes. Sort of like saying that a steering wheel is more powerful than the brakes.

Now, back to your question: what do you mean by "image slider"?

Well, considering that the site you linked to is a JavaScript plugin for jQuery, then yes, it can be done in JavaScript.
