Syllabus

0. Introduction

An intro to the workshop structure and plan, which will train the student in language they will use — Javascript — as well as the skills you'll need to make websites alive. Along the way, the student build real-world projects. Also, we will introduce them to the program Slack community, to give student developers and program staff a real-time chat environment for discussing the workshop. If they need assistance building a professional profile, creating a resume, or expanding their professional network we have a long list of resources to help them out. Let's see what's so special about JavaScript, what we can achieve with it and which other technologies play well with it.

1. Getting Started with Javascript

Interactive image galleries are a common feature of many websites, from photo sites to e-commerce applications. You will use HTML and the popular programming language JavaScript to create an interactive, searchable gallery of photos.

2. Getting Started with jQuery

In this project, you'll create a browser version of "Wheel of Success", a word guessing game. You'll use Javascript and jQuery to come up with a random phrase that players will try to guess by entering different letters into the program.

3. Develop a Web Dashboard

Build an interactive dashboard for a web application using advanced web techniques using JavaScript programming. The project involves creating tables, charts, graphics and other user interface components in a manner that promotes interactivity and usability.

4. Work with APIs

Many sites — Twitter, Facebook, IMDB, and Wikipedia to name a few — offer a vast sea of data that you can access and display on your own web pages. Using JavaScript, you'll create an employee directory by communicating with a third-party API (Application Programming Interface).
