‘Build-Your-Own-Curriculum’ Series

  • 10:00am
    • Doors Open
  • 10:00 am – 11:00 am
    • Questions / obstacles / problem solving (optional)
      • for those who ran into any issues during the week that we were unable to solve, you can come by early and we can figure out what is going on
  • 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
    • JavaScript: Interactive Patterns
      • Interface interactions can be broken down to three main concerns:
        • Elements – the HTML elements involved
        • Events – the events that may take place (user events such as clicks, keystrokes;
          or any other types of events that JavaScript makes available to us)
        • Instructions – the instructions that we want to take place when events occur
      • During this session, we will go through a series of common interactive experiences that we find on the web, and observe how this pattern is implemented. For this section we will build:
        • A tooltip component
        • A pop-up or modal component
        • A letter-counter component (like what you might find on Twitter)
  • 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
    • JavaScript Form Validation: intermediate
      • We will take a look at validating some more complex form input structures such as Radio Buttons or Checkboxes
      • To do this, we will investigate some more complex programming concepts such as ‘iterators’
  • 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
    • APIs: The WordPress Version
      • What are APIs?
      • Who uses them?
      • Why do we use them?
      • Do we need to know about them?
      • Where do they fit in with the rest of the Web?
      • We will take a look at APIs within the WordPress environment so we can take a familiar platform, and use it to build an understanding of the world of APIs
  • 2:30 pm
    • Wrap-up and setting Goals and Objectives for next week
