What is a DOM?
“The W3C Document Object Model (DOM) is a platform and language-neutral interface that allows programs and scripts to dynamically access and update the content, structure, and style of a document.”
The W3C DOM standard is separated into 3 different parts:
Core DOM — standard model for all document types
XML DOM — standard model for XML documents
HTML DOM — standard model for HTML documents

I hope this explanation of DOM helped clarify some confusion on your first couple of days as a JS developer!! :)
