About this event

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. It will be taught by Truc Nguyen, Senior UI/UX Designer at Unity Technologies, and Sara Gudeman, Software Engineer at Zillow Group.

This is the perfect follow-up workshop for those who attended our Intro to HTML & CSS workshop and Intro to JavaScript workshop.

Topics covered

• JS DOM access

• JS DOM manipulation

• JS DOM events

• JS DOM animation
