Introduction to JavaScript/JQuery (4 week class series)

This JavaScript course consists of four consecutive 2 hour classes on Wednesday evenings, beginning on October 30 and ending on November 20.

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 begin creating interactive websites. We will be covering basic Javascript, to the JQuery library, dynamic HTML, JSON and APIs (don't worry this will all make sense by the end of class!)

Because JavaScript interacts with HTML elements, we suggest having a working knowledge of HTML as a pre-requisite for this course.

Course Cost: $90.00

Instructor: Christina Yang is a software engineer who studied Computer Science at DePaul University. She is currently working as a front-end developer and is experienced in many different web technologies and programming languages. One of her goals in life is to encourage women of all ages to learn technology and computing no matter where they are in life. Her passion is working with non-profit organizations to make learning easier through digital media.

    Hi Christina,
    Is parking by Table X! reasonable? Downtown meter prices are nuts. Any recommendations? I may also take the Brown line, but it's kind of a walk from Quincy/Wells and usually running a bit late. Just wondering about my options. Thanks. Looking forward to this class.

      Hi Carina,
      Unfortunately I'm not very familiar with the parking situation since I don't have a car. If you're coming from anywhere off of Halsted, the 8 bus is quite close to Table XI. If you are anywhere off of the blue line, the Clinton stop is really close. Hope this helps!

    Hope you guys are pumped to start learning JavaScript this week! If you want to get a head start on the class, make sure you have an updated browser and text editor on your laptop. For more information on what programs you should install before class, visit my website at http://somanybears.com/ ... yes I know it's a weird URL :)

    Hi! I have taken a VERY basic HTML/CSS course through Skillcrush.com, as well as been doing exercises on Code Academy to strengthen my understanding. I really want to start learning JavaScript as well, but am concerned about what you mean by "working knowledge" as I am still a newbie to HTML/CSS overall. Could you confirm if you think I am ready for this course or if I would need higher understanding of HTML/CSS (like working in it every day) first? I could wait till I am stronger in HTML/CSS before I dive into JavaScript but I am eager to at least start to understand it and see it in working action. Will I be completely lost do you think? Thanks!

      Hi Leanne! Having basic HTML knowledge will help you get more out of the course. But if you're feeling skeptical, you might want to continue doing Code Academy exercises to brush up on things and strengthen your understanding before it starts. We'll also have teaching assistants guiding people along if you get stuck and you're always welcome to ask any questions as they come up! Everyone is at a different point in their learning and has a different learning style, so all questions are welcome!

    • Leanne R.

      Thanks Christina! I will consider it and decide if I should hit this class or wait a round and get deeper into HTML/CSS first.
