About JavaScript for the Web (Pt. 1)

JavaScript is one of the most common languages used to create experiences on the web, from simple animations to complex web applications. Used on over 95% of all websites, JavaScript is both highly relevant and easy to get started with, requiring only a text editor and a web browser. This workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience for learning JavaScript. During the session, you’ll learn:

  • Basic JavaScript programming concepts, patterns, and syntax.
  • How to use tools built into your browser to explore and debug JavaScript code.
  • Where JavaScript fits in with other coding languages for the web such as HTML and CSS.
  • How to modify the structure and content of a webpage, via its document object model (DOM), using JavaScript.

This workshop will take place on the main level of Canadian Western Bank Place on 10303 Jasper Ave, in Concourse Meeting Room A. The cost of this workshop is a minimum of $5.00 (pay-what-you-can).

Who is this for?
  • “I’m curious about tech and code in general”
  • “I am a complete beginner when it comes to coding”
  • “I have some coding skills but I’m looking to try my hand at something new!”
  • “I have financial barriers that make it hard to pay for classes and training”
  • “I’m not sure if I belong in tech— I wish I saw more people like me leading this industry!”

This event is open to all adults 18+, designed in a way that seeks to explicitly welcome people with underrepresented genders—this includes cis women, trans women, trans men, non-binary people, and others who are marginalized because of their gender identity or expression.

We believe that addressing the gender gap in tech is just one part of building digital equity. A more just and equitable future for technology in Canada means building programming that supports, empowers, and equips all learners who historically have been—and continue to be—underrepresented in tech, particularly Black, Indigenous and other Racialized learners, people in low-income communities and newcomer learners.
