Hey you! Have you joined the Ladies Learning Code mailing list? If not, join here.

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)
Is this workshop for you?
 
This workshop has been designed for beginners who have never been exposed to JavaScript before, but already have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. Not sure if you have the basic HTML and CSS you’ll need to get the most out of this workshop? If you’ve been to either of our Intro to HTML & CSS workshops (and paid attention), you should be good to go! Missed those workshops? See this quiz. If you can answer the 3 questions, you are probably a good fit for this workshop.

What participants say about our programs:

“Honestly, the set up of one instructor – four students is brilliant.”

“I’m super impressed with the organizers and participants, and I think it’s a really valuable initiative”

“[The best part of the workshop was] the positivity, helpfulness and eagerness to learn/teach of every person in the room.”

“After years of teaching myself to code, I wasn’t sure how I’d find the collaborative experience of an LLC workshop- but it completely exceed my expectations. The lead instructor was clear and throrough, and the volunteer instructors were always ready to throw new challenges at us the moment they saw we’d completed the current task. Solving a coding problem has always been exciting for me, but havin a group of people equally excited about it was amazing!”

Hope to see you soon!
