Event Details

Hey you! Have you joined the Ladies Learning Code mailing list? If not, join here.

 

What is Ladies Learning Code?

We're a Canada wide not-for-profit organization providing women, *men and youth the opportunity to learn beginner-friendly technical skills in a social and collaborative way. We're all about showing people that learning to code can be fun!

*Men are welcome to attend (and they do!), but we encourage you to bring an additional female learner where possible

 

Why jQuery?

You’ve started to learn how to make web pages with HTML and CSS and now you’re ready for the next step. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to take a static web page and give it that little extra sumthin’ sumthin’.

JavaScript or jQuery, what’s the difference? 

JavaScript is a wildly popular programming language that is used on almost every website. Photo slideshows, Twitter timeline updates and Google auto-complete search terms are just a few examples of JavaScript! jQuery is a library that makes writing JavaScript a breeze.  Not sure what a JavaScript library is? No worries, you’ll get plenty of information about what it is, how to write your own jQuery code and use plugins like this snazzy photo slider: http://flexslider.woothemes.com/thumbnail-slider.html. 

What will you learn?
 
jQuery is JavaScript so we’ll start with fundamental JavaScript concepts such as variables and functions.  Also, learn how to use the handy tools like the console, right in your browser. Then we’ll jump into jQuery and learn how to manipulate various elements of a web page and add fancy effects based on different user actions like click and hover. You can even change the CSS and update how your web page looks based on these interactions. We’ll also dive into how to use the Flexslider photo gallery plugin to make your web page even more dynamic.  

By the end of the day, your web page will no longer just sit there and look pretty, it’ll also be full of fun interactions!


 
Is this workshop for you?
 

This workshop has been designed for beginners who have never been exposed to JavaScript before, but already have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. Not sure if you have the basic HTML and CSS you'll need to get the most out of this workshop? If you've been to either of our Intro to HTML & CSS workshops (and paid attention), you should be good to go! Missed those workshops? See this quiz. If you can answer the 3 questions, you are probably a good fit for this workshop.

What participants say about our programs:

 

"Honestly, the set up of one instructor - four students is brilliant."

"I'm super impressed with the organizers and participants, and I think it's a really valuable initiative"

"[The best part of the workshop was] the positivity, helpfulness and eagerness to learn/teach of every person in the room."

"After years of teaching myself to code, I wasn't sure how I'd find the collaborative experience of an LLC workshop- but it completely exceed my expectations. The lead instructor was clear and throrough, and the volunteer instructors were always ready to throw new challenges at us the moment they saw we'd completed the current task. Solving a coding problem has always been exciting for me, but havin a group of people equally excited about it was amazing!"

 

Hope to see you soon!
