The workshop will include lectures, hands-on exercises, and a project that you will continuously build on. Teachers include Claire Bendersky, Brenda Jin (Senior Platform Engineer at Slack), Esther Weon (Software Engineer at Presence Product), and Jessica Dene Earley (Lab Instructor at Hackbright Academy). We will have TAs to help as well.
This is a great follow-up to our HTML/CSS workshops. If you have made a webpage at HTML/CSS, you may bring that page to use as your project.
BY THE END OF THIS COURSE, YOU WILL HAVE THE FOLLOWING SKILLS:
Basic programming techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages (e.g going through a list of objects aka iterating through an array, coding something that handles different situations with if/else statements)
Attendees need to have a basic understanding of HTML and CSS. If the following makes sense to you, you’re ready to go:
- Your laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux are all okay) and charger.
- A modern web browser - either Chrome or Firefox.
- A text editor. We recommend Sublime Text 2 (free to try; $70 for continued use) or Atom (free and open source). Both are available for Mac, PC, and Linux.
- Functions, Objects, and Arrays
- Animating a web page
