Here’s a great way to get a taste of what coding is to see if it’s the right fit for you! In this 10-week, introductory class, you’ll receive an overview of web browsers and technologies, learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and build interactive web interfaces with jQuery. Our instructor has over 12 years’ experience as a software developer working with Ruby, Python, JavaScript and C# for customers in a variety of industries. Free and open to ages 16+.

Prerequisites: Attendees will ideally bring their own computer, running either Linux, Windows or macOS with a recent Firefox or Chrome browser pre-installed. If necessary, there is an alternate path using a library laptop. Please let the Reference staff know if you will require one. Bonus: prior experience with HTML and CSS!
