JavaScript for Non-Programmers

This course runs for two days on Saturday, December 1st and Sunday, December 2nd from 1pm to 5pm.

Javascript is a language that all good web developers must know as it is the primary way to do client side web development. It can be thought of as an extension to HTML which allows developers to incorporate some functionality in their web pages (such as Login or Submit on a form).

Many programming courses end up glossing over some of the tricky words -- 'variable', 'object', 'method' -- this course is especially designed for beginners new to programming concepts, so you'll learn to program with JavaScript. If those words are confusing to you now, no worries! You're exactly who we want to teach.

In this class, we will be covering basic development elements, Javascript, dynamic HTML, and we will touch on the JQuery library. Students will exit this class with a good grasp of basic programming principles and the knowledge of how to manipulate HTML elements. The course runs from 1pm to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

We suggest having a working knowledge of HTML as a pre-requisite for this course. This course is specifically for beginners and we highly advise experienced developers to not take this class.

About the teacher:

Catherine Farman has been building websites for over half her life, starting with HTML cobbled together on Geocities. She currently works as a Front End Developer at WebLinc in Old City, where she codes standards-based eCommerce websites using HTML, CSS and jQuery. After teaching mobile web design basics and TA'ing for HTML/CSS and Git courses, Catherine is excited to lead her first Javascript class for Girl Develop It. When she's not at a computer she likes to sew, watch soccer and plan events with Girl Geek Dinners. You can find her on Twitter at @cfarm.

    Hi there, unfortunately I have to work this weekend and cant make the class. While I cannot get the refund, hopefully this opens a slot for a wait lister. I will definitely attend 1st Qtr 2013. Take care and maybe I can receive any literature provided?

      Hi Sonya, I'm sorry to hear that! If someone takes the spot before class tomorrow, we'll be able to issue you a refund. Email me separately (myasmine at gmail) and we'll see if we can get any material over for you to look over at least.

    I would like to take this course, but my parents are visiting that weekend. Do you know when it will be offered again?

    Hey there :) I signed up and paid for this class this afternoon but I'm not showing up as attending. A friend did as well and I don't see her. Can you let me know if you see my payment/RSVP?

      Hmmm....That's so odd. I don't have any visibility into payments but I just sent an email to our Finance person. I'll report back as soon as I hear from him. We'll make sure to figure this out!
