This class is held in two sessions:
• August 22nd, 11am-3pm
• August 29th, 11am-3pm
Both sessions are included in the $90 class fee. Please plan on attending both weeks of the class.
You must have a working knowledge of HTML and CSS.
Java Is a back-end programming language most often used to create large, enterprise-level applications. It can be used to create websites, but can also be used to create stand-alone software.
Sure, it's a lot more complicated than that, but at a high level that should help you figure out which one you're looking for.
Any questions? Hit us up at losangeles [at] girldevelopit.com and we'll gladly help you get it all sorted out.

What to bring
Please bring a laptop* and charger to class. Power outlets and wifi will be provided. You may also wish to bring a notepad and pen/pencil for taking notes.
We'll be using a modern web browser and a text editor in class. If you don't already have these installed, please install them before you come to class.
For web browsers, we recommend Mozilla Firefox (http://firefox.com/) or Google Chrome (http://google.com/chrome). For a text editor, we recommend Sublime Text 2 (http://www.sublimetext.com/2). Note that you do not have to purchase Sublime Text 2. If you download the free evaluation version that will be good enough for class.
