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. 

The comprehensive workshop will be a mix of lectures, pair programming, and hands-on exercises building your webpage, and will be taught by Claire Bendersky and Brenda Jin

By the end of this course, you will have the following skills

• Basic programming techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages (e.g going through a list of objects aka iterating through an array, coding something that handles different situations with if/else statements)

Prerequisites: Attendees are not expected to have any previous programming experience. If the following makes sense to you, you're ready to go:

Tech requirements: Your laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux are all okay. If you don't have one of those, please let us know in advance) and charger. A modern web browser - either Chrome or Firefox. A text editor. We recommend Sublime Text 2 (free; available for both Mac and PC) or Notepad++ (PC).

Study Group: There is a Study Group session on Wednesday, July 13 6pm-8pm where you will get personalized help from our wonderful TAs. They can give you feedback, answer your questions pertaining to the take-home assignment, and review your code. 

This is Parts 1 of the JavaScript Workshop Series for Build-Your-Own-Interactive-Webpage. Make sure to continue the series by signing up for Part 2 (events and animation)! 

Payment is required to attend. If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, request a scholarship. Due to the amount of applications, only the scholarship recipient will receive an email a few days before the workshop. Thank you for your understanding!
