About this event

#LatinaGeeks is proud to partner with Inuit to present an enriching virtual opportunity for Latinas to learn JavaScript using GitHub. JavaScript, known as the backbone in frontend web development, is still considered the most commonly used programming language. It is currently used by 94.5% of all websites, making it one of the most sought-after skills in the web development industry today.

Why Business Professionals Should Learn JavaScript

Are you a business professional who uses the Internet to perform research, use web-based business software, manage your customers, prepare reports or analyze data Then you should learn JavaScript.

JavaScript used to be just for geeks. But increasingly JavaScript is becoming the lingua franca of the web. The skill of writing JavaScript lies where typing was in the 80s. It’s not required yet, but it gives you a competitive advantage.

JavaScript can help you:

  • Add functionality to your spreadsheets
  • Customize your web-based business software
  • Automate your Windows applications
  • Enhance your desktop
  • Tailor your browsing experience
  • Build database reports
  • Visualize your data

Join this interactive workshop to get hands-on experience in learning how to do basic programming with JavaScript in a GitHub environment. You can follow along as you build a webpage by applying and creating common scripts. Empower your inner geek and join us for this enriching and exciting workshop!
