Front-end Web Development

A free, weekly class on HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

What

Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and put them to good use! This free class, taught by Jeffrey Carl Faden, is aimed at beginners who are interested in web development, as well as seasoned professionals looking to brush up on the latest and greatest.

Front-end web development is all about making code that runs in the browser (versus code that runs on the server). This class focuses on writing interactive web applications, taking designs and turning them into code, and much more.

Who

This class is for everyone! Computer users unacquainted with programming, as well as experienced developers, are welcome at any time. If you're new to the class, consider coming to the lecture at 7:30 for a recap.

The space and the class are entirely free to attend. You do not have to be a Noisebridge member. Upon arriving at Noisebridge, state that you're here for the class and you'll be allowed in as a guest.

If you appreciate this class and the space that enables it to be taught, please consider donating to Noisebridge.

Please bring any kind of laptop.

When

Lectures start promptly at 8pm on Mondays and go for up to two hours. There is a half-hour recap starting at 7:30pm. Please try to arrive early as physical space is limited.

Labs start at 8pm on Thursdays and end two hours later.

This class runs in a weekly series, and the curriculum takes about 6 months from start to finish. Don't let it discourage you if you're starting from the middle - attend recaps and labs and you should be able to catch up!

Where

Noisebridge, 2169 Mission St., San Francisco, 94114 (at 18th St., near 16th St. BART station). Getting Here

The lecture is held in the Church classroom, which is in the back of the space.

The lab is held in the Turing classroom, the room past the wood shop.

Read up on getting in to the space. Again, you do not need to be a member!

New Series
