JavaScript is the web'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/CSSMany programming courses end up glossing over some of the tricky words -- 'variable', 'object', 'function' -- 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, writing our own JavaScript functions,browser events, web animation, 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.

This is an 8-hour class and it is recommended that you have previous knowledge of HTML and CSS.
Note:You are not required to take our introductory workshop before taking this one, but it is recommended if you have no previous HTML/CSS experience.
