About This Workshop

This one-day bootcamp is geared towards beginners with little or no prior experience and provides a full introduction to programming fundamentals using JavaScript. You will be introduced to some of the tools that will help you approach programming in a systematic way including flow charts and pseudo-code. Building on that foundation we will use JavaScript, the language of the web, to play with all of the basic structures of most modern programming languages including data types, flow of control, functions and objects. We will also cover how JavaScript as a language relates to other modern programming languages (such as HTML and CSS) and how it fits into the overall structure of the world wide web.

***We're also offering our HTML & CSS Crash Workshop the day prior. If you're interested in both languages, you can purchase both workshops as a bundle for a discounted price. Sign-up for the full weekend here!

Takeaways

  • Understand at a high-level how the web works, the role of the browser and where JavaScript fits into the picture
  • Understand what programming languages are and how they work
  • Define the DOM and JavaScript's importance in using it to create rich web applications
  • Be able to apply problem solving skills to turn an abstract idea into a running program; use flow-charts and pseudo-code to break down a problem and to think like a programmer
  • Understand and apply programming fundamentals using JavaScript: basic data types, arithmetic, conditional statements, iteration (loops), functions, arrays and objects
  • Understand basic best-practices in software engineering at a high level

Preparation

  • Participants should have basic knowledge of HTML or have taken Day 1 of this Bootcamp Series.
  • Please bring a laptop with Sublime Text 2 and Google Chrome installed.
  • If you'd like a bit of a head start, check out Code Academy's JavaScript workshop. Again, it's optional but it may give you some extra perspective.

About the Instructor

Tyler Pugh Photo

Senior Software Engineer ,
Consultant

At an early age, Tyler gained a serious passion for web design that was strengthened at St. Edwards University while earning a degree in Computer Science. Before graduation, he scoured Craigslist to pick up freelance design opportunities and eventually he joined a music promotion company called Scoremore. When not attending their electronic concerts, Tyler focused on creating Wordpress websites for various musicians and designing flyers for Scoremore's upcoming shows. Just after graduation, he accepted a position at a software development company where he co-founded a learning application called Trails.by. This gave him the opportunity to really develop his skills on the front and back end working with PHP, HTML, CSS, and Javascript (Node.js and client-side). With experience under his belt, in 2014 he co-founded an enterprise social networking tool called Caboh. As the only developer, Tyler got to tackle everything from chat servers to pretty buttons on a daily basis. He's now a local startup constant. When Tyler isn't at work, he is probably buying random domain names or giving brewery tours at Independence Brewing Company with an IPA in hand. Tyler is an enthusiastic teacher that is willing to go the extra mile for anyone that shows dedication and interest.
