This workshop provides a rigorous introduction to JavaScript programming fundamentals and a hands-on approach to the JQuery framework. Participants will learn core programming concepts and gain practical experience working with the components of modern web development –JavaScript, HTML and CSS. By the end of the workshop you will have an understanding of how all these technologies work together to create dynamic, professional web applications.
