JavaScript Study Group

Have you ever wondered how to add interactive behavior to an otherwise bland, static HTML CSS page? It is now time to take your webpage a step ahead with Javascript!

This study group will introduce you to the much talked about programming language, JavaScript. JavaScript is most commonly used as a client side scripting language. Its primary purpose is to add interactivity to an otherwise static page, it is normally used in conjunction with HTML & CSS to enrich your web content. JavaScript can enhance the dynamics and interactive features of your page by allowing you to perform calculations, check forms, write interactive games, add special effects, customize graphics selections, create security passwords and much more.

This study group is intended for everyone who wishes to learn JavaScript programming language, it's perfect for beginners with a basic understanding of HTML & CSS and since there is no prior installation required, JavaScript is hassle free to get started with and fun to create something that’s easy to share with friends. If you already know JavaScript, this can be a great platform for you to get together with fellow developers and hone your skills!

The event will be hands-on, so please bring your laptop and charger. We are going to follow an online resource, with mentors going around answering your questions and helping you along the way!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
