About this event

Join us for a full project day where we'll utilize the beginner JavaScript skills learned from the first JS session in July.  

Come and use your burgeoning JavaScript skill to make graphs on a web page. Well be using a charting library to take data you construct and turn it into graphs. 

Our fabulous teacher, Kate Greene, will be be leading us through a project that day or you can come work on your own if you prefer.  

Who should attend?

If you attended the beginner JavaScript series in July, you should come!   If you already know the beginner JavaScript material, (classes 1 & 2 of Intro to JavaScript/jQuery here), feel free to come out!  This is NOT a class, but it will be an instructor-led project day to help students use what they've learned so far.  

About the teacher: 

Kate Green is a web developer at the Chronicle of Higher Education. She got her start on the web in 1998 when a friend gave her a 15 minute crash course in HTML. She stood up her first server the next year and has worked on the web since. In the interim she learned CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and now Ruby. 

Today she leads front end development for chronicle.com and philanthropy.com, where she did the look and feel for the new responsive sites and has introduced automated testing and code quality to the front end code base. Outside of work she runs, gardens, and runs her dog in agility. 

Disruption Corporation is generously providing space at their Crystal Tech Fund offices in Crystal City for our classes!  They are an amazing partner, and we encourage you to Tweet your thanks @disruptioncorp
