JavaScript is a the language of interactivity on the web. Ever used Google maps? Clicked on something to make it appear or hide? Seen a slideshow of images? You have used JavaScript!

Learn how to add interactivity and other features to your sites!Because JavaScript interacts with HTML elements, we suggest having a working knowledge of HTML as a prerequisite for this course. If you already know some HTML or have taken our Intro to HTML/CSS classes, JavaScript is a great next step! (Don't know HTML? Our Intro to HTML (http://www.meetup.com/Girl-Develop-It-Baltimore/events/170056212/) is being offered on 3/31!)

About the teacher: Shea Frederick has worked as a web developer for several companies and currently works for AOL/Advertising.com. Shea is the primary author of Learning ExtJS, a book to help ease beginners into the ExtJS library, and is a core developer on the ExtJS project.

Please bring/install the following on your computer prior to class:

• Your laptop and charger. Note: A netbook or tablet is NOT a substitute. If you need a laptop to use in class, please contact us! Code in the Schools has a few laptops they are generous enough to let us borrow if needed, but we must arrange this ahead of time.

• A code editor installed. (We recommend Notepad++ (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v6.5.3.html) for Windows and SublimeText 2 (http://www.sublimetext.com/2) for Windows or Mac. Both are free.)
