About this workshop

Join us for a workshop on programming aimed at beginners. This workshop 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 and how it fits into the overall structure of the world wide web.

Takeaways

· Be able to use flow-charts and pseudo-code to break down a problem and to think like a programmer · Apply programming fundamentals using JavaScript: basic data types, arithmetic, conditional statements, iteration (loops), functions, arrays and objects · Be able to apply problem solving skills to turn an abstract idea into a running program · Understand at a high level what programming languages are and how they are used · Understand at a high level how the web works and where JavaScript fits into the picture

Prereqs & Preparation
