Intro to JavaScript

Virtual Classes

Thursday, January 14, 2021, 12:00 – 2:00 AM UTC


About this event

JavaScript is the programming language that makes web pages interactive, and is now used these days to make servers, robots, and more. That makes it one of the most useful first languages to learn, if you're just getting started with programming, and particularly web development. In this workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of programming in JavaScript.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and hands-on exercises and will be taught in a two class series for a total of four hours of class time. 

Mon, Jan 11, 7p-9p EST / 4p-6p PST (Class 1)

Wed, Jan 13, 7p-9p EST / 4p-6p PST (Class 2)


Attendees are not expected to have any previous programming experience. If you already have experience with another language besides JS, you are welcome to come, but you may find the workshop goes at too slow a pace.

Tech requirements:

Your laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux are all okay) 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).
