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.
