About this event

JavaScript is the language of the web, and it's an increasingly powerful way to make your webapps interactive and dynamic. In this intensive FOUR-night workshop, we'll cover programming basics in JavaScript and then delve into the fun stuff - manipulating webpages.

This class runs from 6pm-8pm each night. We will start promptly at 6, so please arrive early to get settled.

How should I prep?

You should be familiar with HTML- you don't need to be an expert, but a solid understanding of what tags are, what attributes are, and how to manipulate HTML to get a result is needed to participate fully.

You will also need your own laptop to participate.

You don't need to install anything (except a web browser!), but you might like Sublime Text 2.

Thank you to Citizen Space for the great location!
