Intro to Javascript (grad students only)

March 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

TechShops for Grad Students LogoWondering how to make a website more engaging? Need to add some interactive features to your digital work? Looking to learn a basic web development skill before you enter the job market? Learn the basics of Javascript!

JavaScript is a text-based programming language used both on the client-side and server-side that allows you to make web pages interactive. Where HTML and CSS are languages that give structure and style to web pages, JavaScript gives web pages interactive elements that engage a user. Incorporating JavaScript improves the user experience of the web page by converting it from a static page into an interactive one. In short, JavaScript adds behavior to web pages. Common examples of JavaScript that you might use every day include the search box on Amazon, a news recap video embedded on The New York Times’ website, or refreshing your Twitter feed. Come to this intro course to learn more!

This workshop is part of Fordham IT’s new series of instructional technology workshops designed especially for graduate students looking to broaden their knowledge and skill with digital tools for the classroom, research, and professionalization. It is organized by Heather V. Hill, graduate student liaison for Fordham IT’s Instructional Technology Academic Computing (ITAC).
