JavaScript for Beginners - Installation Party


This is a JavaScript beginner workshop that will guide you through building your first web application using EmberJS. It is open for women and those who are non-binary. If you are new to programming and/or JavaScript, this event is just for you!

This is the preinstallation event to get you ready and setup for the workshop the following day, May 25th. You can RSVP to the workshop day here:

Please follow the signup instructions to register for both the installation party and the workshop over there.


JavaScript is a dynamic programming language commonly used for building websites today. Knowing how to build JavaScript applications does not only enable you to build your own web projects and share them with everyone on the web, but it can also be the stepping stone to a career as a web developer.

In this workshop, we’ll teach the basics of the JavaScript programming language and work on building a web application in JavaScript. For this we will also use a JavaScript framework called EmberJS and learn the fundamentals of web apps in general. We’ll meet up Friday night to install all of the software you need, and then spend Saturday learning and writing code.

Total programming novices, system administrators, developers in other languages, and folks who attended workshops similar to the ones organised by RailsGirls or Code Curious are all welcome. Each participant needs to bring their own computer. If you do not own your own computer, please reach out to the organizers and we'll be sure to arrange something for you..

(Sometimes people ask if the Friday night install party is mandatory, and yes, it is! It’s a crucial part of the weekend, even if you’ve already gone through the instructions independently. There are a ton of moving parts when setting up a development environment, and the reason that we’re able to get through the curriculum on Saturday is that every single student has had their dev environment checked and has been awarded a sticker for their successes.)

If you have questions or ideas for us, the best way to get in touch is to email an organizer.
