Who's it for?

Anyone who has a basic understanding of using HTML and CSS to create web pages. (If you want to learn these skills, take a look at our "Learn to Code" workshop).

You may have already seen and used JavaScript or jQuery code, and want to get back to the basics of the language. Or perhaps you already know another programming language and you want to expand your knowledge.

What you'll learn

You'll learn how to use the language and its core concepts. You'll get to create a small application, and along the way learn how to load data with AJAX, how to manipulate the HTML and CSS on the page and how to use the jQuery library to make web development simpler.

What you'll need

Basic familiarity with HTML and CSS, and access to a laptop that you can bring along (or contact us if you'd like to borrow one).

Who's teaching?

Tom Parslow, Premasagar Rose and Pete Goodman — all Brighton-based professional web developers and teachers of web technology.
