About this event

**Doors to the building will be open at 12:30pm and close at 1:05pm. Due to the building's weekend security, you will not be able to enter the building after 1:05pm, so please try and get here as close to 12:30pm as possible to ensure entrance. If you arrive after 1:05pm you can post a comment to this Meetup and someone will come let you in, but it may take a few minutes for Corey to notice as she will be teaching.**

In this 1-day workshop, we will introduce jQuery, the most popular JavaScript library for making webpages interactive. We'll have hands-on exercises throughout the day. This workshop will be a combination of live lectures and exercise time, with TAs to help you through the exercises. If you're interested in being a TA, please let us know.

Prerequisites:

This workshop assumes that you have already learnt JavaScript fundamentals, HTML/CSS, and the DOM API (from our previous workshops or online). You don't need to be an expert in them, but you'll want some familiarity with them. If you're not sure if you have the prerequisite knowledge, please send a message.

Supplies:

Please bring a laptop and charger. If you do not have a laptop, please send us a message.

Recommended: Google's Chrome browser and Sublime Text 2 text editor (both free downloads). If you currently use a different text editor like TextWrangler, feel free to stick to that. Note: Word processing software like Pages or Microsoft Word will not work for programming!

"Language is important to me. I spent 8 years as a speech therapist dedicated to improving communication - and then I found the language of code. The intricacies of coding and its infinite reach through technology drew me firmly into the world of web development, and now my love of language extends to Ruby and JavaScript. Improving communication remains important to me, but the tools I use to do so have changed."

Corey is a teaching assistant for DBC and Codecademy / ReskillUSA.
