About this event

**Doors to the building will be open at 12:30pm and will close at 1:05pm. Due to the building's weekend security, you will not be able to enter after 1:05pm, so please try and get here as close to 12:30pm as possible to ensure entrance. If you arrive and the doors are locked, you can try messaging Corey through the Meetup app, but as class will be in session she may not see your message immediately.** 

Nowadays, we are using JavaScript more and more on our webpages, and that means that we can end up with hundreds or even thousands of lines of JS. If you're not careful, your code can quickly become an unnavigable maze of spaghetti code. Most web developers are now using Object-oriented concepts to help them modularize their code and make it more re-usable. In this afternoon workshop, we'll give an overview of Object-oriented JavaScript, and spend most of our time actually getting our hands dirty using those concepts.

Per our prerequisites guide, you should be fairly familiar with JS, like by having attended our JS 101 workshop. Please bring a laptop, a charger, and light snacks. If you're interested in being a teaching assistant, please let us know. 

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship: http://goo.gl/forms/N1SuTg9q7a

About the teacher:

"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.
