Module #3 (repeated)

Module #3 will cover:

• Functions • Global Variables • Closures • Function.arguments • Function.call • Function.apply • Recursion • Callback Functions • Call Stack • Prototype Chain • New • Constructors • beget

Instructional Methods:

Each class will include a lecture introducing new concepts, then a step-by-step lab showing how to implement the concepts discussed in the lecture. Afterwards, people are encouraged to work alone or in groups to experiment with the new concepts presented. People are encouraged to ask questions anytime during the class.

Attendance is always optional; each week’s material will be repeated the following week to allow for personal scheduling flexibility. There will never be any tests or grades. A laptop is required for participation in the labs.

What this course will not cover: CSS, Node.js, server side programming, HTTP APIs and JavaScript libraries, with the exception of a bit of jQuery at the end of the course for fun.

Recommended Reading: JavaScript: The Good Parts by Douglas Crockford http://www.amazon.com/JavaScript-Good-Parts-Douglas-Crockford/dp/0596517742

Important

    This would be my first meet up with this group. Any input on where I can get the materials on modules 1 and 2 so I can be prepared for module 3?
