ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Are you a creative or entrepreneur that wishes you could speak tech with your web development team? Maybe you wish you could code a bit yourself? Programming for Non-Programmers is workshop series at General Assembly designed to help non-programmers communicate more efficiently with developers. Because leading a development team (without being a developer yourself) can sometimes feels like “talking about dancing”, we’ve created an interactive and friendly environment in which to learn the basics.

This workshop tackles development principles to get you on the right path, by looking at questions like, "Front-end vs. Back-end?", "Is UX necessary for my project?", "What is this Javascript function thingy, and why am I passing it strange math equations to it?". About half of the class is spent looking at actual code and writing some basic Javascript, HTML & CSS.

PREREQS & PREPARATION

You must bring a laptop to class (Mac preferred, as the examples on screen will be for the Mac OS).
