Coding Crash Course: JavaScript (online)

The crashiest crash course for coding chaos. In two hours we’ll do a hands-on tour of the basics of JavaScript programming for the web. This course covers:

  • How HTML, CSS, and JavaScript combine to create web pages and apps.
  • Using a web-based IDE (integrated development environment) to code your projects.
  • Fundamental concepts of programming: variables, functions, data types, data structures, and conditional logic.
  • Other people’s code: how to find and reuse open source projects and how to credit them properly.

This class is ideal for people who want to take the Generative Art with p5.js class on 11/20 but have no programming experience. It's also great for beginners who want a class to jump start their self-guided education.

Note: Because this is a whole lot of stuff to cram into two hours, you will be contacted a week in advance with some short videos and flashcards to review before class. This will help you become familiar with some of the jargon and concepts so class time can be spent hands-on with some coding exercises. After the class, students are also entitled to a 15 minute, one-on-one tutoring session with the instructor on Zoom to troubleshoot any issues or cover the material in greater detail.

This class will be taught by NYC Resistor member AJ McGuire. AJ is an artist, maker, and teacher who has taught technology topics to adults, teens, and children in libraries, schools, hackerspaces, and elsewhere.

This event will be online via Zoom. Refunds up to 24 hours before the event. Event page with Zoom link will become available 1 hour before the event begins..
