About this event

Course description

In this workshop, we will introduce jQuery, the most popular JavaScript library for making webpages interactive. This is the perfect follow-up workshop for those who have attended our Intro to JS: Animations and Events workshop

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and hands-on exercises in pairs, and will be taught by Mary Ann Jawili, Software Engineer at Salesforce and Hanah Yendler, Front End Developer at SEPHORA

Slides and materials are hosted here.


Attendees should be comfortable with HTML/CSS fundamentals (HTML tags and attributes, CSS selectors) and JavaScript fundamentals (syntax, data structures, conditionals, loops). Attendees should also have learned the DOM API (access and modication methods). That means that you either attended our Intro to HTML workshops, Intro to JS workshop (Parts 1 and 2), or that you learned those concepts online.

You can review them online at a few places:

• HTML/CSS: Khan Academy's HTML/CSS course, Codecademy's HTML/CSS course, GDI SF HTML/CSS slides

• JS: Codecademy's JS course, Khan Academy's Intro to JS course, GDI SF JS slides

• DOM API: Khan Academy's "Making Webpages Interactive" course

Tech requirements:

• Your laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux are all okay) 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).

Topics covered:

• What is jQuery?

• What is a JavaScript library?

• Finding, creating, changing, and reading elements.

Note: There will also be an Intro to jQuery Part 2 workshop!
