The Wild, Wild West of Programming

The Warehouse

Created in 10 days, JavaScript is the more popular, younger brother of the web development world. One of (if not the) most popular languages in the world, JavaScript is the cornerstone of website interactivity. Are you obsessed with functionality? Probably not? That's alright JavaScript will still win you over with its interesting syntax, convoluted organization, and crazy power. In this beginner focused three hour workshop, attendees will learn the fundamentals behind JavaScript and build out an interactive browser game to take back to the kids.
