This is a free introductory class on Javascript, 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. Our classes are open to everyone, so please share and bring a friend!

This course is especially designed for beginners new to programming concepts, like variables, data types and functions. It will also introduce the Document Object Model (DOM) and how to use it to change html pages. Students will exit this class with a good grasp of basic programming principles and the knowledge of how to manipulate HTML elements.

It would be best to have a working knowledge of HTML for this class. There are many online resources to learn HTML, including this free course from Code Academy:

-Please bring your own laptop, NOT a netbook or tablet.
-Install a modern web browser (Google chrome, Safari or Firefox)
-Please download a text editor before the start of class. We recommend Sublime Text 2 or 3.
