About This Class

Expand your coding toolkit with the No. 1 language in tech.
Step into the world of web development with General Assembly. During our JavaScript-focused workshop, see how it powers dynamic websites and applications through animations, drop-down effects, and more — and why it’s the No. 1 programming language in tech. Through a series of hands-on coding exercises, you’ll:
- Learn how to think like a programmer.
- Survey the JavaScript landscape and see how developers leverage this language to succeed in their careers.
- Discover how JavaScript and jQuery update the appearance and content of a web page in real time.
- Apply what you’ve learned to add animations and effects to a website.

Chart your own career path. Pick up where this workshop leaves off. Enhance your professional skill set online in our mentor-guided JavaScript Circuit, or on-campus with our part-time JavaScript Development course.
