Get a complete immersion into two technologies that power most of the functionality we see on the web: JavaScript and jQuery. Learn what they are, how they work, and how you can use them. This is not a workshop for developers; it’s geared toward helping web designers understand the code and how they can harness it to create beautiful website designs.
