Instructional Methods:

Each class will include a lecture introducing new concepts, then a step-by-step lab showing how to implement the concepts discussed in the lecture. Afterwards, people are encouraged to work alone or in groups to experiment with the new concepts presented. People are encouraged to ask questions anytime during the class.

Attendance is always optional; each week’s material will be repeated the following week to allow for personal scheduling flexibility. There will never be any tests or grades. A laptop is required for participation in the labs.

What this course will not cover: CSS, Node.js, server side programming, HTTP APIs and JavaScript libraries, with the exception of a bit of jQuery at the end of the course for fun.

Recommended Reading: JavaScript: The Good Parts by Douglas Crockford


Each module will be presented twice in succession, so if you can't make a class the first time a module is presented do not worry as it will be presented again the following week. This meetup is closed to recruiters. No exceptions.

    Hey, Tony. I can not locate the Module 5 files. Are they a share on Google Drive?

      thanks, Tony. I was "stuck" and was searching for answers and I remembered that your slide set had the answer.

    Thanks, Tony. Your presentation was "perfect" and "inspirational". I am going to dedicate the rest of my week to designing a javascript web page. I want to see how many features I can get-in. Thanks.

    I joined the group to learn js. I don't have the background for it and haven't been to the class in a while. I have an android streaming movie app that needs some changes. I want to clone it then shrink it. Anyone interested? Contact me here.
