JavaScript Fundamentals I

FrontEnd Classes

About this event

JavaScript is the programming language that makes web pages interactive and is now used these days to make servers, robots, and more. That makes it one of the most useful first languages to learn if you're just getting started with programming, and particularly web development. In this workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of programming in JavaScript.
