About this class

Are you a creative or entrepreneur that wishes you could speak tech with your web development team? Maybe you wish you could code a bit yourself? In this workshop we'll tackle some development principles to get you on the right path. We'll look at questions like, "Front-end vs. Back-end?", "What is this Javascript function thingy, and why am I passing strange math equations to it?"

If you're running a tech start-up, it's essential that you familiarize yourself with the fundamentals of web development. Ultimately knowing how to "talk to the talk" will help you communicate better with developers, and overall just look really cool. Come with questions, and a desire to have fun! No prior development knowledge required.

This session is the first of two, focusing on front-end web development. You can find the other part of this series (the Back-End Web Development Focus) on our main page,.
