JavaScript is a the language of interactivity on the web. Ever used Google Maps? Clicked on something to make it appear or hide? Seen a slideshow of images? You've used JavaScript!

You'll begin learning to develop interactive websites in this introductory course. We will be covering basic JavaScript and jQuery, as well as dynamic HTML, JSON and APIs. (If you don't know what any of those acronyms mean, don't worry... this is the class for you!)

You should have a working knowledge of HTML prior to taking this course.


The course will be taught by Nick DeNardis, Associate Director of Web Communications at Wayne State University, Refresh Detroit officer, and Technical Director for TEDx Detroit. He is a regular writer at .eduGuru as well as hosting the video blog EDU Checkup. Nick has been a supporter of Girl Develop It Detroit since the beginning, and we are so excited to welcome him to the team!
