JavaScript for Beginners: Introduction to the Fundamentals of Web Programming

Saturday, April 29th @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM


Why JavaScript?

JavaScript is simple but powerful. It is the backbone to all those nifty animations you see on websites and it powers many modern day web applications, including Gmail, Google Maps, and Facebook (to only name 0.00001% of the sites that use JavaScript!).

Many aspects of JavaScript can be easy for even absolute beginners to grasp but has powerful language constructs that can be used down the road. With JavaScript, getting started is super simple, since all you need is a web browser and a program like Notepad or TextEdit. No need to worry about installing interpreters, compilers, or any of that mumbo jumbo.

The Ladies Learning Code Introduction to JavaScript workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience. Join us for this full day workshop and you will:
* learn basic programming techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages
* review the basic building blocks of how HTML, CSS, and JavaScript work together to create richer online experiences
* write JavaScript to create a snazzy shopping cart
* get a quick introduction to the popular JavaScript framework library jQuery
* get an idea of what resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will)

Is this workshop for you?

This workshop has been designed for beginners who have never been exposed to JavaScript before, but already have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. Not sure if you have the basic HTML and CSS you’ll need to get the most out of this workshop? If you’ve been to either of our Intro to HTML & CSS workshops (and paid attention), you should be good to go!
