Introduction to Javascript and jQuery

Saturday, December 15th from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm

Andy Tzou, Rich Media Innovations, Google

Join us for this full-day workshop on the JavaScript programming language. We will provide a full introduction of programming fundamentals using JavaScript to create rich web applications with animation and interactivity. Building on the foundations you learn, we take a hands-on approach in showing JavaScript's relationship to HTML and CSS to create professional, relevant applications.

Topics include:

  • Industry trends: The rise of mobile and JavaScript's role
  • JavaScript origins
  • Where we see JavaScript around the web: what is it good for?
  • JavaScript's important relationship to HTML and CSS
  • A beginner-friendly primer to programming fundamentals introduced through the JavaScript language: basic data types, arithmetic, conditional statements, iteration (loops), functions, arrays and objects
  • A complete, working HTML5 template complete with CSS and JavaScript
  • Hands on building-from-scratch: a professional swipe gallery/carousel.


By the end of the workshop, participants will have a firm foundation in JavaScript fundamentals and grasp JavaScript's importance and relationship to HTML and CSS. Participants must bring a laptop.

Andy Tzou is a sales engineer at Google helping to usher in a mobile-first world. On the Rich Media Innovation team he works with advertisers in New York City to build and experiment with engaging new ad formats. Andy earned his Masters in Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon and has taught undergraduate computer science for one decade, focusing on attracting talent to the field.
