The Intro to JavaScript workshop is designed for beginners who have never been exposed to JavaScript before, but already have a very basic knowledge of HTML and CSS (Take the quiz here to see if you have the basic HTML/CSS you’ll need to get the most out of this workshop).JavaScript is a programming language that helps make a web page or other element(s) interactive. When you view a slideshow,see a pop-up ad, see a Facebook Timeline update, or a Google auto-complete a search term – that’s JavaScript! Students do not need any previous programming experience or knowledge, and will only be required to bring a laptop with WiFi (and power cord). Lunch for the workshop is provided.
