About this event

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is from 1-5 on Saturday, and then from 1-5 on Sunday. Despite what Meetup says, this is not a 1 day, 4 hour workshop :)

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


What to expect?

This workshop will cover beginning programming, the basics of JavaScript, how to use JavaScript to manipulate websites, and some basic developer tools and techniques to get you a head start on the road to becoming a great developer.

Who is teaching?

This workshop will be taught by Liz Howard. Liz is an engineer at Voxer, a company that uses JavaScript for everything. She's been coding for 8 years, and really loves to teach. If you're interested in helping out as a teaching assistant, please let us know.

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 Square for the great location, and thank you to SendGrid for providing lunch on both days.

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship.
