Next week we'll continue to look at jQuery by adding functionality
(retweeting, favoriting, replying) to the Noisetwitter app we looked
at last week:

In case you're completely baffled by jQuery, I intend to un-baffle you
by the end of the class! I don't intend to teach any new concepts,
just apply ones we've already learned. If you want to buff up before
class, I suggest completing the assignment from Thursday's lab, now
with solution linked:

Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and put them to good use! This class,
taught by Jeffrey Carl Faden, is aimed at beginners who are interested
in web development, as well as seasoned professionals looking to brush
up on the latest and greatest.

Frontend web development is all about making code that runs in the
browser (versus code that runs on the server). There isn't a big focus
on web design (creating wireframes and mockups), but we do cover best
practices for turning these designs into beautiful code.

The class starts at 8pm and goes until 10pm! Plan to arrive EARLY, as
the class has been filling up very fast. We will have a recap of last
week's material, starting at 7:30pm. If you're either new, couldn't
make last week's class or you simply need a refresher, come early and
we'll go through a simple tutorial. It is completely fine to jump in
half-way - the recaps and labs should help you get up to speed.

As always, this class and the space in which it's taught are entirely
free to attend. Read all of the details here:
