Javascript Bootcamp Remote (Online) | Nashville

About this workshop

This course will take students who have little to no experience with the Javascript Programming language and get them up and running with core JS principles. We will begin by running Javascript in our command line, learning to declare variables, control the flow of a program using conditional statements, declare arrays, create functions and write loops to iterate behavior. We will then work through some of the more difficult concepts in the Javascript language like objects, hoisting, and scope. We will dive into the most current Javascript syntax, using Es6, and discover the value of these updates to the language. We will then learn to use Javascript to interact with the browser and conclude our day by writing a fully functioning program in the browser.
