About this event

JavaScript is the programming language that makes web pages interactive. It is also used to make servers, robots, and more! That makes it one of the most useful first languages to learn. 

The comprehensive workshop will be a mix of lectures, pair programming, and hands-on exercises building your webpage. It will be taught by Samantha Paras, Software Engineer at Datafox, and Angela Castanieto, Software Engineer at Gametime United.

This is a recommended workshop for students interested in our full front-end workshop series.

By the end of this two-day workshop, 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)

Slides: http://www.teaching-materials.org/javascript/

Prerequisites: Basic HTML & CSS. Attendees are not expected to have any previous programming experience. 

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 Mac, PC, or Linux) or Atom (also free; available for Mac, PC, or Linux).
