Event description

Description

JavaScript is the language of the browser. Every website you’ve ever used is built with JavaScript, with interaction powered by the popular jQuery library. Even Stanford’s intro to Computer Science course now uses JavaScript as its teaching language. Learn how to use JavaScript and jQuery and build a simple web app in this workshop.

Together we’ll learn key jQuery concepts like manipulating the DOM and using event listeners to update our app in real time. See an example before you come: this web app was made by an attendee at one of last events!

Before you come: Experience with HTML/CSS is ideal. Be sure to bring a laptop. If you don’t have one, we can pair you with someone who does!

About our collaborator:
