Intro to JavaScript

This afternoon I gave a very short introduction to computer programming at Trade School. I focused on JavaScript as a language to start with, mainly because there’s essentially nothing to install and there are many practical uses to knowing a little JS.

Here is my slide deck. I’ve also posted some example code and the original Keynote file to GitHub.

Incidentally, it looks like the last presentation I posted here was for last year’s Trade School workshop on WordPress.

A jQuery plugin for crashing IE6. That’ll teach those motherf!%@#s to upgrade their s#%t.



A very nerdy, very narrowly focused blog about the eccentricities of JavaScript.
