Free Coding Lesson: Intro to JavaScript

January 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


About the Event:

Have you wanted to code in JavaScript but don’t know where to start? Do you manage developers who use JavaScript and you want to understand the language better?

This talk is designed for programming beginners who want a tour of programming basics. We’ll discuss variables, data-types, and control flow. The concepts presented apply to nearly all programming languages, but we’ll be using JavaScript’s syntax for all concrete examples. 

If you’re a programmer who already speaks another language, and are looking for a tour of JS Syntax, this may interest you as well.
