Frontend Web Development returns this Monday!

We'll talk about Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, a technology that allows
us to talk to a server without leaving the page. jQuery makes this
extremely easy. We'll add AJAX functionality to our app we've been building
We'll need this PHP file to test it out:

Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and put them to good use! This class,
taught by Jeffrey Carl Faden, is aimed at complete 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 on Monday 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. Don't let it
discourage you if you're starting from the middle - attend recaps and
labs and you should be able to catch up!

This class and the space in which it's taught are entirely free to
attend. Please bring a laptop. Read all of the details here:
