  • 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 – 1:30 pm
    • JavaScript: Interface States
      • As a programming language, JavaScript gives us an interface to access and manipulate elements on our web pages. During this session, we will take a look at some common patterns to keep track of what ‘state’ our interface is in, as well as be able to control the appearance of our interface based on the state. This will include taking a look at:
        • Dynamically adding class names to HTML elements
        • Preparing CSS to support different states of the interface
        • Storing the state of our application
        • Controlling ‘success’ and ‘fail’ criteria for user interactions (such as filling out forms)
  • 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
    • Saving Form Entries to a Database
      • We will walk through the considerations involved with getting our HTML forms to actually be able to save their contents to a database. We may even actually accomplish the feat!
      • Depending on how everybody is feeling, we may try to do this taking advantage of WordPress, or Firebase. We can be flexible.
  • 2:30 pm
    • Wrap-up and setting Goals and Objectives for next week
