About this event

Course description:

In this workshop, you'll learn ways you can use data in your webpages, using AJAX to pull in JSON formatted data dynamically from servers. This is a great follow-up workshop for those who have attended our JS301: Intro to jQuery workshop.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and hands-on exercises in pairs, and will be taught by Hanah Yendler, Front End Developer at SEPHORA, and Claire Bendersky, Solutions Engineers at MovableInk.
