About this event

Course description: 

Want to make your webpages interactive? Then you'll need to use JavaScript, the language of the web. In this workshop, you'll learn how to use JavaScript with webpages - starting with using it to manipulate the HTML/CSS on a page, then attaching events to respond to user interaction, and finally, animating parts of your page.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and hands-on exercises in pairs and will be taught by Truc Nguyen, Senior UI/UX Designer at Unity Technologies and Sara Gudeman. This is the perfect follow-up workshop for those who have attended our HTML/CSS workshop and JS 101 workshop.

</a> Prerequisites:

Comfortable with HTML/CSS fundamentals (HTML tags and attributes, CSS selectors) and JavaScript fundamentals (syntax, data structures, conditionals, loops). You've either attended our HTML 101 and JS 101 workshops or learned those concepts online.
