Tech Term: JavaScript

#TechTermTuesday
JavaScript–one of the most popular programming languages out there, and usually the one that people jump into after HTML and CSS. There are loads of resources out there about why you should learn JavaScript and how to start. The thing is, you can’t avoid it! If you  have been using a web browser, you have been using JavaScript. If you click a button, that’s usually JavaScript.
MythBuster: JavaScript has NOTHING to do with Java, the back end programming language, or Script, the fancy font you can find in Google.
We at Girl Develop It, are firm believers that in order to understand something, you have to do it–so take a look around at some of our favorite JavaScript resources and strengthen those coding muscles! If you like it and want more, our Intro to JavaScript class begins Thursday, July 14 at 7pm.
