Why learn JavaScript?

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 text editor. 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)

Prerequisites:

None! This workshop is designed for beginners.

Who Is This Workshop For?

Our Ladies Learning Code program offers 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. Ladies Learning Code programs tackle the tech gender gap one positive, empowering learning experience at a time.

Our workshops, courses and meetups are open to adults of all ages and genders but are designed to be a space where women explicitly are welcome to learn. Workshops cover everything from introductory HTML & CSS, to WordPress, Python, Ruby, artificial intelligence, web design and more. They are especially popular and successful because of our high ratio (4:1 in most programs!) of learners to mentors at every experience, which is only possible because of overwhelming support from the communities in which we operate.

What's Included

  • 4:1 student-to-mentor ratio with an awesome lead instructor!
  • Great venue with a fun, social and inclusive learning environment
  • Catered lunch. Yum! We'll try our best to accommodate any dietary restrictions (no promises).
