  • HTML and CSS can only take us so far in our web development projects. What if you want to open a pop-up when your “Contact Me” link is clicked? How about adding an interactive photo gallery to your page? Maybe you want to throw together a countdown to an upcoming event? 

    All of these features require some sort of JavaScript - the programming language of the web that is considered one of the “essentials” in web technologies. In this interactive 10 hour course, we’ll start at the basics of programming concepts using JavaScript - from variables to data types all the way to conditional statements and loops. Once the programming fundamentals are covered, we’ll apply them to our webpages, start manipulating the DOM and even build an interactive photo gallery! Get ready to get your algorithm on! 


    Saturday, 3/04: 10am - 3:30pm and Sunday, 03/05: 10am - 3:30pm


    We are honored to have Amy Gebhardt, a local web application developer teach our class. She has a degree in computer science and has 12 years of experience under her belt.


    You understand the basic “anatomy” of a webpage - you know about HTML things like the head, body, and what elements are. You can select elements using CSS selectors. You know the difference between an element with a class and an ID. If you took the Girl Develop It Minneapolis Intro to HTML/CSS and the Intermediate HTML/CSS, courses you are 100% golden. 


    • Google Chrome for viewing our work and using the Dev tools.

    Atom for writing code.


    • Laptop & Charger (there will be Wi-Fi and power strips available)
