Introduction to JavaScript

JavaScript is the programming language of the web. In this workshop you will learn how to take a static website built in HTML and CSS and add dynamic interactions. Along the way, you will learn the basics of the JavaScript language such as variables, data types, loops, and functions. A basic understanding of HTML and CSS is recommended.

Please bring a laptop.

All sessions will be first-come, first served and are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Attendance requires no reservation.
