Intro to Javascript/JQuery

Class will meet on Tuesdays in March from 7-9 at The Brandery. Due to the restrictions of Meetup's registration, we can't schedule multi-day events, so keep in mind that this Meetup event serves as registration and payment for the entire course)

Course Description: Javascript is an important language in modern web development. It gives developers a greater degree of control over web pages for creating interactive interfaces and dynamic content. In this class we will provide you with some of the basics of programming, using JavaScript to manipulate websites and how the basics needed to start on the path of becoming a great web developer. jQuery is one of the most popular Javascript libraries in use today and makes it much easier to use JavaScript on your website. jQuery takes a lot of common tasks that requires many lines of JavaScript code to accomplish, and wraps it into methods that you can call with a single line of code. It makes client-side scripting easier by providing a simplified interface for interacting with HTML documents.

This 4-class Schedule:

Class 1: Intro to JavaScript
Tuesday, March 5 from 7:00 - 9:00pm
Class 2: Functions, Arrays, Loops and Objects
Tuesday, March 12 from 7:00 - 9:00pm
Class 3: Introduction to jQuery
Tuesday, March 19 from 7:00 - 9:00pm
Class 4: AJAX, APIs and sharing data
Tuesday, March 26 from 7:00 - 9:00pm

What to expect: Students will exit this class having a good grasp of basic programming principles and the knowledge of how to manipulate html elements.Each week concepts will be reinforced through hands on, in-class exercises. Your assignment will not be graded but will be evaluated with feedback and coaching from the teaching staff.

Class preparation: We suggest having a working knowledge of HTML as a prerequisite for this course. You don't need to be an expert, but an understanding of tags, attributes and how to they interact with CSS are expected to fully participate. If you do not have an understanding of how to write and build a web page using HTML and CSS please consider taking our Intro to HTML/CSS course first. Students are asked to bring their own laptops to use.

Instructor: John Back is a web developer based in Cincinnati, OH.  He currently works as a developer for Rockfish Digital with a focus on backend development and rapid prototyping. John is active in the startup community with such startups as Blackbook.  John enjoys living in downtown Cincinnati, semi-competitive kickball, and being a vegetarian.

    Just joined this group today, so can't make this class. But when will you offer it again?

      Hi Jill - Sorry for the late reply. We're not exactly sure at the moment. Depends on schedules with the venue and the instructors and the demand from students. We'll always keep Meetup.com updated though, so check back!

    Is it street parking?

    • John David B.

      Justine - There should be street parking (meters are done at 6pm) all down Vine St. Another great option that is very close is the Washington Park Garage: http://washingtonpark...­ - it's just a couple of blocks away. Myself and my TAs are also happy to walk people to their cars after class.

    Would love to take this course - however I'm a total novice... zero HTML background... is there anything I can do on my own (online trianing, local community college courses, books, etc...) to get up to speed before this class happens? Please let me know as I'd really like to take this course... thx

      Jessica - we do recommend you attend the Intro to HTML/CSS course (http://www.meetup.com...­) or learn the fundamentals on your own (per Steph's suggestion) prior to attending the JS/JQuery course. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at [masked]. +

    • Eric B.

      Jessica, I agree with Erin. You should come on over to my class. You can get caught up with HTML and CSS faster than a typical HTML/CSS session.
