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 updates the appearance and content of a web page in real time.
  • Apply what you’ve learned to manipulate JavaScript in the command line.

Chart your own career path. Pick up where this workshop leaves off. Enhance your professional skill set with our part-time JavaScript Development course, or with our Front End Web Development course.

Takeaways

  • Gain an overview of the JavaScript landscape and its placement in the web development ecosystem.
  • Practice programmatic thinking
  • Write expressions that assign and evaluate variables
  • Understand the fundamentals of Javascript datatypes
  • Leverage the power of the command line and manipulate Javascript on your own device

Prereqs & Preparation

  • Basic HTML and CSS experience is helpful, but not required.
  • Bring a laptop! Please install Sublime Text 3 and Google Chrome on your computer before class.
  • For some extra coding practice before class, we recommend completing DASH Project 1
