JavaScript for Beginners
This 4-part JavaScript for Beginners course follows up from Beyond the Basics of HTML and CSS in our Front End series. It runs on Monday and Wednesday evenings for two weeks: July 9, 11, 16, & 18. Classes run from 6:30- 8:30pm. 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 animations and events. Students will exit this class with a good grasp of basic programming principles and the knowledge of how to manipulate HTML elements. Support for this class is provided by Momentum Learning (http://momentumlearn.com) in Durham. Prerequisites: We suggest having a working knowledge of HTML as a prerequisite for this course. This course is specifically for beginners and we advise experienced developers not to take this class. Your Teachers: Amy Hendrix & Lisa Smith! Tech Requirements: Your laptop. Note: A netbook or tablet is NOT a substitute. If you do not have a laptop, we may be able to provide one for the class. A modern browser, either Chrome (https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/) or Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/) with the Firebug (http://getfirebug.com/) extension installed. A text editor. We recommend the free code editor from GitHub, Atom (https://atom.io/). Scholarships We will offer a scholarship to this class. We must receive your application by July 2nd to consider it. Please fill out this form to apply: http://gdirdu.com/scholarships Refund Policy: Your payment of $96 guarantees your seat in the entire course.

We put proceeds into the chapter fund, which we use as our scholarship fund.

What we're about

It can be intimidating for women to learn and ask questions when they are in an extreme minority. While open and welcoming, today's budding developer community is up to 91% male. There isn't a comfortable place where women can learn at their own pace and not be afraid to ask "stupid questions." We decided it was time to provide a place where all questions are OK and everyone can learn in a supportive environment. Our courses focus on coding, leveraging existing technology, and having something to show for it (aka building sweet websites). Stay tuned to this meetup for upcoming scheduled classes.
