About this class

Join us for this 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 the foundations you learn, students take a hands-on approach in showing JavaScript's relationship to HTML and CSS to create professional, relevant applications. The primary emphasis of this workshop is on the JavaScript programming language, with secondary emphasis on HTML and CSS.

Takeaways

  • Understand at a high-level how the web works, the role of the browser and where the industry is going: the rise and importance of mobile and where JavaScript fits
  • Define the role of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in web pages and web applications
  • Understand and apply programming fundamentals using JavaScript: basic data types, arithmetic, conditional statements, iteration (loops), functions, arrays and objects

Prereqs & Preparation

  • Basic HTML experience may be helpful, but is not necessary.
  • Bring a laptop to class (Mac preferred but not required).
  • Please download and install Sublime Text.

If you'd like a bit of a head start, check out Code Academy's JavaScript course. Again, it's optional but it may give you some extra perspective. If you have any additional concerns or questions, please email Andy Tzou prior to class.
