JavaScript Broth, Season 1


Narrowing the skills gap, one chapter at a time.

LinkedIn Learning offers a 10-module, video-based series entitled "JavaScript Essential Learning." This course helps you build your understanding of JavaScript piece by piece, from core principles like variables, data types, conditionals, and functions through advanced topics including loops, and DOM scripting.

This virtual self-study group offers a beginner-level look at JavaScript. We will navigate one module per week for a total of 10 weeks. Duration: 5+ hours

Access to this training opportunity is available for FREE to Boston Public Library members. Residents of Massachusetts can obtain a Boston Public Library card for FREE. Non-Massachusetts residents should contact their local library or obtain a paid subscription to LinkedIn Learning.

NOTE: Boston PHP Meetup's ability to offer these learning opportunities is dependent upon facilitators (Senior Percolators) stepping up to lead the Season and assist participants. A Senior Percolator is someone who is interested in the topic, participates in the group AND is willing to lead by helping others along the journey with periodic communications. Learn more about becoming a Senior Percolator and giving back to the Boston PHP community.

Self-Study Group Format

The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows:

• Each participant gains access to a LinkedIn Learning account.

• Each participant commits to review one video-based module per week, complete any exercises and post progress updates as you complete each module.

• Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board for each module. Each comment will receive a response from your Senior Percolator. Participants will also receive a weekly group e-mail update from your Senior Percolator.

NOTE: There is NO classroom instruction. There are NO Zoom meetings. There are NO scheduled appointments of any kind.

Once you have access to LinkedIn Learning, you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule.
