JavaScript / jQuery (4 class series)

Join us for this four-class series where you'll walk away with the know-how to work with JavaScript & jQuery.

Description

Anytime something changes when you are viewing a website, you've just seen JavaScript in action.

When you:

+ are on Facebook and a notification pops up that you have a new comment
+ are filling out a form and a flag indicates that you made an error 
+ hover over a movie at Netflix and the description pops up
+ see something animate, grow, shrink, fade in or out

That's JavaScript doin' its thing.


JavaScript is the key to making your website dynamic and responsive. Using it effectively will help you manage input and respond to your users.

This course will give you a good working understanding of JavaScript and how to manipulate the page. We'll start with the basics and progress towards jQuery - a JavaScript library that will make your pages go whizz, bang, boom. (In a good way, of course).

Pre-requisite:

Understanding and experience with HTML/CSS. Wondering if you are ready? Shoot us an email!


Dates

Thursdays 6:30-8:30pm (Doors open at 6:00pm to get a good seat, grab a snack and get set up)

Class 1 - July 5

Class 2 - July 12

Class 3 - July 19

Class 4 - July 26

All the notes and slides for the course will be available online for you to use during and after the class.

Access

Please bring photo ID. Upon entering 1 Broadway you'll check in with security. Tell them you're visiting the 14th floor.

Once you depart the elevator you'll find glass doors that are locked. If one of us is not there waiting to open the door, call Nicole @ (910)[masked] and we'll come let you in.

We're meeting in the room labeled Charles.

You'll pay at $10 deposit when you RSVP via Meetup.com; because we have limited space, this is to save your spot in the class.

    Hi everyone,
    Next week is the last class! A few of us would like to invite you to join us for drinks at Firebrand Saints (next door) for drinks and conversation after class. Hope to see you there!

    Hi Shanae! Yes we have a couple more seats than we thought; I'm opening them up now.

  • Shanae

    Hi! I would really like to attend this workshop. Is there any way that you can make room for one more?

    1 · July 2, 2012

  • Nicole N.

    Hi Amy: we suspected that some people might be away on the 5th--if there are enough people who are, but who could otherwise take the series, we can schedule a make-up class. Please comment if you are in the same position so we can organize!

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.
