Intro to JavaScript (4 week series)

This will be a 4 week, 2hr course meeting on Wednesday nights at 6:15pm beginning April 9th and continuing each Wed until April 30th.

Cost: $60 (for all 4 classes!)

JavaScript is the world's most popular programming language for a reason -- it's the primary way to build interaction on the web. Learning JavaScript is a logical next step once you've learned HTML/CSS.

Many programming courses end up glossing over some of the tricky words -- 'variable', 'object', 'method' -- this course is especially designed for beginners new to programming concepts, so you'll learn to program with JavaScript. If those words are confusing to you now, no worries! You're exactly who we want to teach.

In this class, we will be covering: 
basic development concepts, JavaScript, dynamic HTML, and we will touch on the jQuery library. Students will exit this class with a good grasp of basic programming principles and the knowledge of how to manipulate HTML elements. 

Prerequisites: We suggest having a working knowledge of HTML as a prerequisite for this course. This course is specifically for beginners and we highly advise experienced developers to not take this class.

Tech Requirements:

• Your laptop. (Note: a netbook or tablet is NOT a substitute!)

• A modern browser with either Chrome and the "Web Developer" extension or Firefox and Firebug installed.

• A text editor. We recommend Sublime Text 2 (It's free and available for both Mac and PC).

Instructor: Ben Willkommen

Ben is the Web Architect for jockey.com. In addition to writing code to improve the process of buying underpants on the internet, he spends his days mentoring junior developers and web designers, introducing them to the wonderful world of programming.
