Intro to JavaScript and jQuery

JavaScript is a language that all good web developers must know. Around since the early 90s, it's still the primary way to do client side web development. We will be covering everything from basic JavaScript, the jQuery library, and dynamic HTML to JSON and APIs. Students will exit this class having a good grasp of basic programming principles and the knowledge of how to manipulate HTML elements.

We suggest having a working knowledge of HTML as a prerequisite for this course. (Don't know HTML? Sign up for our January intro!)

This 2-class JavaScript course runs on the following schedule:

Class 1: Intro to JavaScript and jQuery
Saturday, February 16th from 12:00-4:00pm

Class 2: Chaining, element manipulation, JSON and AJAX with jQuery

Sunday, February 17th from 12:00-4:00pm

About the instructor

My name is Kassandra Perch, and I am a web developer in the Austin, Texas area. My background is as a PHP developer in college, and now I'm moving forward with my career as a web developer and with my education. My eventual goal is to be a professor of computer science. I still volunteer-teach at St. Edward's for the Loosely Organized Computer Organization (LOCO), which I co-founded as a student. When I'm not coding, I"m making jewelry, knitting, crocheting, or sewing things for my young relatives and friends. I also do lots of cartooning in my spare time, and love to draw. I have been an Austin native for over 5 years, and currently reside in the Tech Ridge area with my boyfriend Brad (also a developer, and a great baker), a roomate, and my two cats, Jack and Ace.

    this was an excellent intro—being a total novice to programming, i found it tough to keep up on the first day, but after some hands-on practice in codeacademy afterward i felt like i had a much better handle on the concepts we'd gone over. the intro to jQuery was the highlight for me—and was all the more impressive for having set the foundation the previous day. kassandra and garann were super knowledgable and helpful, and the other gals in the class were supportive and friendly. it was a really positive and empowering experience all-around. thanks, y'all.

    I got a little lost sometimes, but the one on one instruction was great!

    Hi! I'm currently learning HTML for a few of my grad school classes, but I don't know if I'd say I have a "working knowledge" of it. Do you think I'd be able to do well in this training?

      Great question! When we say "working knowledge", we mean you should be comfortable writing the syntax of HTML and CSS without having to double check for things like matching brackets, quotes, and semicolons. You should have a general understanding of the structure of HTML tags and CSS declarations, but don't need an encyclopedic knowledge of every tag or style property.
