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 Kristin Mayer, Software Engineer at Omicia and Brenda Jin, Staff Engineer at Slack

This workshop goes from 10AM - 5PM Saturday and Sunday with an hour break for lunch.

By the end of this course, 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)

Prerequisites: Attendees are not expected to have any previous programming experience. If the following makes sense to you, you're ready to go:



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 both Mac and PC) or Notepad++ (PC).
