Ladies Learning Code: JavaScript for Beginners: An Introduction to The Fundamentals of Web Programming - Peterborough | Sunday, 06. May 2018




JavaScript is simple but powerful. It is the backbone to all those nifty animations you see on websites and it powers many modern day web applications, including Gmail, Google Maps, and Facebook (to only name 0.00001% of the sites that use JavaScript!).
Many aspects of JavaScript can be easy for even absolute beginners to grasp but has powerful language constructs that can be used down the road. With JavaScript, getting started is super simple, since all you need is a web browser and a program like Notepad or TextEdit. No need to worry about installing interpreters, compilers, or any of that mumbo jumbo.
The Ladies Learning Code Introduction to JavaScript workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience. Join us for this full day workshop and you will:


learn basic programming techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages


review the basic building blocks of how HTML, CSS, and JavaScript work together to create richer online experiences


write JavaScript to create a snazzy shopping cart


get a quick introduction to the popular JavaScript framework library jQuery


get an idea of what resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will)

Our Ladies Learning Code workshops offer female-identified and male-identified, trans, and non-binary adults hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators.
