If your goal is to become professionally employable as a programmer or web developer, then it would be difficult to make a better choice than learning JavaScript right now. This workshop will teach you a number of useful techniques in how to use JavaScript (& jQuery) to build interactive websites and create immersive web experiences by working on real-world projects. This workshop is geared to those that have no previous experience with JavaScript, giving you the foundation to apply your skills to various applications, as well as the knowledge to successfully enter our Web Development Immersive Program.

No matter your existing skill level, by the end of this workshop you will learn:

  • How to program efficiently in JavaScript using: variables, arrays, objects, etc.

  • Working with objects and learning to evaluate conditions

  • Working with functions to create complex code
