Teens Learning Code: JavaScript for Beginners

November 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm MST

Free

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 Teens 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)

Who is this for?

Our Teens Learning Code workshops and events offer female-identified, trans, and non-binary youth ages 13-17 opportunities to take action on ideas that will shape our future while leveraging the power of technology. Our learning experiences are much more than learning how to code. Our experiences empower teens to learn problem solving skills, how to turn ideas into reality, exposure to what a future in technology could look like, and much more.

Prerequisites:

None! This workshop is designed for beginners.

What’s Included:

4:1 student-to-mentor ratio with an awesome lead instructor. Great venue with a fun, social and inclusive learning environment.


Requirements:

You must bring your own laptop for which you have administrative permission. Please remember to bring your own powercord. A mouse can come in handy too! You may be required to download some free software. After you sign up we will email detailed instructions. Learners must bring their own nut-free lunch & snacks, plus a waterbottle!

Note: If you do not have a laptop to use during the duration of the workshop, we have a limited quantity that we can loan out. The option to borrow a laptop will be included in your order form when registering.
