About this class

Expand your coding toolkit with the No. 1 language in tech.

Step into the world of web development with General Assembly. During our JavaScript-focused workshop, see how it powers dynamic websites and applications through animations, drop-down effects, and more — and why it’s the No. 1 programming language in tech. Through a series of hands-on coding exercises, you’ll:

  • Learn how to think like a programmer.
  • Survey the JavaScript landscape and see how developers leverage this language to succeed in their careers.
  • Discover how JavaScript and jQuery update the appearance and content of a web page in real time.
  • Apply what you’ve learned to add animations and effects to a website.
