    Sorry, was pretty disappointed. too much time spent with the "recipe" exercise and the history of javascript & not enough explanation of why or how to use it.

    Hello. I am new to your group. I know a little HTML and would like to learn JavaScript and other codes. I have never used sublimetext. I went to the webpage and it looks pretty daunting. Is this used in your other workshops and can I use it to practice on after the workshop(s)? Thanks you for your help.

      Hi Ye. This class is for absolute beginners and we assume that you have little no programming experience. We will focus on the basics of programming using JavaScript as our language. Based on your background this course may be a little too introductory for you.
