Intro to JavaScript + JQuery

  • Aug 6, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 beginning and start creating interactive sites. 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.

This 2-class JavaScript course runs on the following schedule:

Class 1, 8/6-Introduction to Javascript,  Functions, Arrays, Loops, and Objects

Class 2, 8/9- Introduction to jQuery, AJAX, APIs and sharing data

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship or email [masked].

Please note that we cannot issue refunds, since there's an overhead to issuing refunds via and we already offer the workshops at such a low-cost. We put proceeds into the chapter fund, which we use as our scholarship fund.

If we have less then 10 students, we'll reschedule.

    Will this be in or near Santa Monica/West Side?

      Took me 1hr 15 to get to the Github workshop yesterday in Pasadena, so I'd probably have to drop the class if it's switched to a Pasadena location. If we don't do, can we do something more in the middle so that it's accessible for everyone?

      I'm not sure if the Silver Lake/Los Feliz area is amenable to people but I may have access to a space that the LF Neighborhood Council uses. Would love to set that up for you.

    It's a bit far for me since we live on the east side of town and I don't have a car. But really really interested in this!!

    I have zero experience with Java and very very limited knowledge of HTML (complete beginner, but highly interested in learning to code) -- would this be a good event for me?

    • Irina M.

      I would recommend out Intro to HTML class first. I will post the schedule too.

    Hi Irina, I'm sitting here with Sheeva and we were discussing the rescheduled class time - she isn't able to make the new date of 7/28 and I'm not sure I can make 8/4. If Carlos L. (the other RSVPd student) is amenable, could we work together to schedule a date that all 3 of us can attend given it's such a small group? I'm happy to spearhead coordination. Thanks,

      I am thinking of canceling and doing some other configuration, like 4 shorter sessions. I am not able to hold a class for less then 5 people. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Sheeva

    Hi Irina! Just wanted to confirm this was still happening tonight? Is the location till Thanks so much!

    July 14, 2014

    • Irina M.

      Hi Sheeva, I had to postpone it again, since attendance is kind of slow in the summer. I also shortened it to 2 longer classes.

  • Audrey W.

    Hi, it would be more convenient for me if the location is near Pasadena. Please consider the change of the location. Thank you.

  • Sabrina

    Definitely interested and would attend if this date changes... I'm out of town from June 28-July 6

    June 10, 2014

    • Irina M.

      Hey Sabrina, I moved the class to later and will possibly move it again

    Thanks for hosting Irina. Is there anything we should download or get set up before class?

    I work near Pasadena and cannot make it anywhere close to Santa Monica by 6. Are you ever planning any events in or near Pasadena?

  • Yvonne

    What are the dates for the other 3 classes?

    1 · June 9, 2014

  • Chloe N.

    I'm a yes if I can get to the location by 6 (I am in Westwood).
