JavaScript for Beginners

This class is a two-day series running on Saturday, February 1 and Sunday, February 2 from 9:45am to 3:00pm each day.

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.

The course runs from 9:45am to 3pm on Saturday and Sunday with a lunch break provided each day. (Note: We have a fridge and microwave if you would like to bring your own lunch.)

About the teacher:

Pam Selle decided to work in technology when she realized it's the place where people can create things, share them with each other, and make things better. She began teaching others about technology by introducing seniors to web browsers, and is now happy to share her love of web programming with the members of Girl Develop It, as an instructor for the JavaScript/JQuery courses. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga and rides her bicycle. You can find her on Twitter at @pamasaur.

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).
