[Web Development, Community]

Join VDW's Ben Glassman and Girl Develop It for Intro to Javascript class in South Burlington!

girl-develop-it Vermont Design Works is a long-time supporter of Girl Develop It, and we are excited to team up with them yet again for another web development course. This time VDW's Ben Glassman will be teaching Intro to Javascript, beginning tonight at 6:00pm in South Burlington! This Javascript class is designed for participants to get familiar with how interactivity is added to websites. Ben will be covering Variables, Functions, Arrays, Loops, and Objects. Ben will also look at how Javascript can be used to modify the content, presentation and behavior of a website using event handlers and the DOM, or Document Object Model. Javascript libraries will also be discussed, and how they can be leveraged to achieve complex functionality without writing lots of Javascript code from scratch. There are currently only 6 spots left in the class! You can sign up here if you are interested in this Javascript class. The class takes place over the course of four sessions from 6:00pm - 8:30pm on the following dates: Monday, 3/20 Wednesday, 3/22 Monday, 3/27 Wednesday, 3/29 Class will be held at iSystems on Hinesburg Road. If this class doesn't fit your schedule, be sure to check out the other events Girl Develop It is offering throughout the spring here. You may see some of the VDW employees participating as instructors or TAs!
