Ladies Learning Code - JavaScript for Beginners: An Introduction to the Fundamentals of Web Programming

What is Ladies Learning Code?
We're a Canada wide not-for-profit organization providing women, *men and youth the opportunity to learn beginner-friendly technical skills in a social and collaborative way. We're all about showing people that learning to code can be fun!
*Men are welcome to attend (and they do!), but we encourage you to bring an additional female learner where possible

Why 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 program like Notepad or TextEdit. 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)

Thanks to Amazon Vancouver for making this event possible!

Hope to see you soon!
