Learn to Code: Interactive Websites & Programming Fundamentals

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.

What You’ll Learn:

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

  • Interacting with the web browser using jQuery

  • Working with JSON documents

  • Interacting with APIs using AJAX, like Google Maps, Instagram, and Twitter

Who Should Take this Class?

This workshop is for anyone interested in learning to understand how to program interactive websites using JavaScript. Typically, we find there are three categories of students:

  • Hobbyist: Come and test the waters and see if working with programming logic and coding is something you enjoy.

  • Future Web Designer: You want to learn more about JavaScript in order to utilize the power of jQuery (which allows JS to interact with the elements within a web page) and work with API’s like Google Maps, Instagram, and Twitter.

  • Future Web Development Immersive Student: If you are considering becoming a Galvanize Web Development student, you will find this workshop will give you the tools and techniques you are expected to know to enter the program.
