Instructional Methods:

Each class will include a lecture introducing new concepts, then a step-by-step lab showing how to implement the concepts discussed in the lecture. Afterwards, people are encouraged to work alone or in groups to experiment with the new concepts presented. People are encouraged to ask questions anytime during the class.

Attendance is always optional; each week’s material will be repeated the following week to allow for personal scheduling flexibility. There will never be any tests or grades. A laptop is required for participation in the labs.

What this course will not cover: CSS, Node.js, server side programming, HTTP APIs and JavaScript libraries, with the exception of a bit of jQuery at the end of the course for fun.

Recommended Reading: JavaScript: The Good Parts by Douglas Crockford


Each module will be presented twice in succession, so if you can't make a class the first time a module is presented do not worry as it will be presented again the following week. This meetup is closed to recruiters. No exceptions.
