Javascript Bootcamp Remote

Placeholder

About This Workshop

This course will take students who have little to no experience with the Javascript Programming language and get them up and running with core JS principles. We will begin by running Javascript in our command line, learning to declare variables, control the flow of a program using conditional statements, declare arrays, create functions and write loops to iterate behavior. We will then work through some of the more difficult concepts in the Javascript language like objects, hoisting, and scope. We will dive into the most current Javascript syntax, using Es6, and discover the value of these updates to the language. We will then learn to use Javascript to interact with the browser and conclude our day by writing a fully functioning program in the browser.

I went to GA Seattle WDI (Web Development Immersive) course. It changed my life. Within 1 1/2 months of graduation, I was offered a great job at a company that's considered one of the top 5 to work for in the pacific NW. Starting next week I'll be a Software Engineer making more than twice what I made in my previous career, and I enjoy the work much more. I can't heap enough praise onto the General Assembly Web Development program. Like I said, it's changed my life in ways I didn't think possible.

GA WDI has been a great decision, not only was I able to learn such an extensive knowledge of multiple languages and frameworks to build web apps, but also being a part of an awesome ever growing family. I would highly recommend GA WDI to anyone.

I loved taking the FEWD class with General Assembly. My teachers were the head developers at Nordstrom and such cool guys! In just a 10 weeks I learned how to code HTML, CSS, and intermediate JavaScript. I wish we had spent more time with GitHub but apparently all future classes are using it for every homework assignment so that's good to hear. I would recommend GA to anyone serious about learning a difficult 21st century skill like web development or user experience or digital marketing. I got so much more out of it than I feel I would have with any online course.
