  • 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/). Refund Policy: Your payment of $96 guarantees your seat in the entire course. Please note that we cannot issue refunds because there's an overhead to issuing refunds via Meetup.com and we already offer the workshops at such a low cost. We put proceeds into the chapter fund, which we use as our scholarship fund. Other Disclaimers: Our program and curriculum are geared toward adults over the age of 18; at this time we do not accept minors as students in our courses and workshops. Parking: American Tobacco Campus is located at 318 Blackwell St, Durham, NC 27701. From either garage you want to head towards the Lucky Strike Tower (the red circle on the map). You want to follow the purple lines and enter the building on the side of Cuban Revolution near the base of the Lucky Strike Tower. Take the stairs (blue star on the map) down to the ground floor and head down the hall (blue thin arrow). We will be at Momentum. Note, there is elevator access, indicated by the black star near the South parking deck. If you have any questions prior to registering, please contact us at [masked]

Now she’s diving into learning AR/VR to try to become one of the influencers of usability patterns & usability research in that space. In her spare time she loves painting, drawing and reading.
