  • JavaScript is the world's most popular programming language for a reason -- it's the primary way to build interaction on the web. Learning JavaScript is a logical next step once you've learned HTML/CSS. 

    Many programming courses end up glossing over some of the tricky words -- 'variable', 'object', 'method' -- this course is especially designed for beginners new to programming concepts, so you'll learn to program with JavaScript. If those words are confusing to you now, no worries! You're exactly who we want to teach.

    In this class, we will be covering: basic development concepts, writing our own JavaScript functions, browser events, web animation, and we will touch on the jQuery library. Students will exit this class with a good grasp of basic programming principles and the knowledge of how to manipulate HTML elements. 

    Prerequisites: You should have a working knowledge of HTML as a prerequisite for this course. This course is specifically for beginners and we highly advise experienced developers to not take this class.

    This class is broken into three sessions. You must be able to attend all three sessions.

    About the Teacher:

    Jocelyn Harper is a software developer by way of Southern Delaware. She realized her love for programming after Kelsey Murphy, a Zip Code Wilmington graduate, urged her to look into the program. It was there that spurred her interest and passion for cloud based services and strengthening her full stack skillset. When Jocelyn is not programming, she is looking into bringing better resources into Wilmington to make STEM programs more accessible to women and more specifically women of color. You can also find her playing League of Legends, and watching anime - most notably - Sailor Moon when time allows.
