In this one-day workshop, we will try out a new self-paced format. We'll start with a round of introductions and an overview of JS, and then you'll watch videos and do challenges at your own pace, using Khan Academy. We will be there to answer questions and help you out throughout the day, and we'll take breaks for lunch (provided), snacks, and socializing.
This workshop is targeted at complete beginners to programming and will cover variables, functions, logic, loops, arrays, and objects. If you already know another language, you're welcome to come, you'll probably just find that you work at a faster pace (you're welcome to TA if you finish early!).
If you are interested in being a teaching assistant for this workshop, please let us know. TAing is a great way to practice what you know and to get to know members of our community.
Please bring your laptop, charger, and headphones. If you don't have any of those, please let us know.
Thank you to Edmodo for the great location!
If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship.
Please note that we cannot issue refunds, since there's an overhead to issuing refunds via Meetup.com and we already offer the workshops at such a low-cost. We put proceeds into the chapter fund, which we use as our scholarship fund.
