    JAVASCRIPT FUNDAMENTALS

    About This Workshop

    This one-day bootcamp is geared towards beginners with little or no prior experience and provides a full introduction to programming fundamentals using JavaScript. You will be introduced to some of the tools that will help you approach programming in a systematic way including flow charts and pseudo-code. Building on that foundation we will use JavaScript, the language of the web, to play with all of the basic structures of most modern programming languages including data types, flow of control, functions and objects. We will also cover how JavaScript as a language relates to other modern programming languages (such as HTML and CSS) and how it fits into the overall structure of the world wide web.

    Takeaways

    Understand at a high-level how the web works, the role of the browser and where JavaScript fits into the picture
    Understand what programming languages are and how they work
    Define the DOM and JavaScript's importance in using it to create rich web applications
    Be able to apply problem solving skills to turn an abstract idea into a running program; use flow-charts and pseudo-code to break down a problem and to think like a programmer
    Understand and apply programming fundamentals using JavaScript: basic data types, arithmetic, conditional statements, iteration (loops), functions, arrays and objects
    Understand basic best-practices in software engineering at a high level

    Prereqs & Preparation

    Basic HTML experience may be helpful, but is not necessary.
    Bring a laptop to class (Mac preferred but not required).
    Please download and install Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code
    Please download and install Google Chrome Google Chrome
    If you'd like a bit of a head start, check out Code Academy's JavaScript course. Again, it's optional but it may give you some extra perspective.
