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 Esther Weon, Full-Stack Software Engineer, 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)




Basic HTML & CSS.

Attendees are not expected to have any previous programming experience. If you already have experience with another language besides JS, you are welcome to come, but you may find the workshop goes at too slow a pace.

Tech requirements

• Your laptop (Mac, PC, Linux) and charger

• A modern web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari)

• A text editor - we recommend either Sublime Text 2 or Atom (both free)

If you do not have a laptop, please contact the instructors. We have a limited number of Chromebooks for students to borrow.
