About this workshop series

Join us for this two-day workshop on the JavaScript programming language aimed at beginners with little or no prior experience. This workshop provides a full introduction of programming fundamentals using JavaScript to create rich web applications. Building on their foundations, students take a hands-on approach in discovering JavaScript's relationship to HTML and CSS allowing them to create professional, relevant applications. The primary emphasis of this workshop is on the JavaScript programming language. A basic understanding of HTML and CSS is preferable.

Takeaways

  • An overview of how the web works and the role the browser plays in this process.
  • An overview of programming languages and learning to think programmatically.
  • Programming fundamentals using JavaScript: basic data types, arithmetic, conditional statements, iteration (loops), functions, arrays and objects.
  • Making the web dynamic using HTML, CSS & JavaScript.
  • Lots of practical examples and exercises, including a couple of larger projects.
  • A burning desire to continue learning about JavaScript.
