Advanced JS: AJAX Workshop

In this evening workshop, we will talk about AJAX and JSONP, the technologies that let websites pull information in dynamically from servers. These technologies are essential to modern websites. Just like with our one-day workshops, we'll have hands-on exercises throughout the night. For any of you who've gone to our JS intro workshop or learnt JS on their own, this will be a great follow-up workshop.

This workshop will be taught by Liz Howard. Liz is a Teacher at Girl Develop It and a professional mentor and consultant. She's been coding for 9 years, and really loves to teach. If you're interested in helping out as a teaching assistant, please let us know.

Please install the following prior to the workshop:

  • A code editor. We recommend Notepad++ for Windows and SublimeText for Mac.
  • A modern browser. We recommend Google Chrome (best) or Mozilla Firefox with the Firebug plugin.

Thank you to Citizen Space for the great location!

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship.

    Liz/Ann was an amazing teacher - I really appreciated the humor and the fast pace, and the willingness of her & the TAs to provide some extra help as needed. I think this class could be longer - maybe a whole day. But in the time allotted, I felt like it was great.

    It was a good introduction to some basic AJAX. Now I really want to take something longer that goes more in-depth.

    Great, but wanted a bit more. I think it will help having follow up notes. Ann is fantastic at explaining things!
