Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Maybe you've been planning to learn a programming language, but have no idea where to start. In this workshop, you'll gain a foundational understanding of the basic elements of programming, and you'll learn about resources that will allow you to continue adding to your skill set. We'll be using JavaScript, which is a great language to complement Web markup, but we will discuss how these concepts apply to any programming language that you might use.


Topics to be addressed:

    Why you should learn to program

    The range of programming languages

    Strings and numbers


    Math and concatenation

    Alerts and prompts



    If Statements and Loops


    Integration with HTML

    Relationship to JQuery


This is a beginner-level session. No prior experience with programming or Web design is required to attend. You won't be an experienced programmer at the end of this class, but you will gain a better understanding of programming concepts and terms. 


Cindy Royal (cindyroyal.com) will instruct the group. She's been teaching Web design for the past 12 years and continues to add programming concepts to the curriculum at Texas State University.
