Intro to JavaScript

Free Seminar

JavaScript is an essential skill for any web developer. It’s commonly used to add interactivity to webpages, such as animation, parallax, slideshows, form validation, and much more. Traditionally it’s run in a web browser (client-side), but having grown in popularity you can now run it server-side (using Node.js for example). We’ll get you started with the fundamentals of client-side (front-end) JavaScript, opening up your webpages to new and exciting functionality!

This seminar is meant for people that have prior experience coding HTML and CSS.

Get an overview of JavaScript fundamentals in this free class, before diving into one of our coding classes, including JavaScript & jQuery, HTML5 Animation with GreenSock, or the Web Design Certificate.
