Javascript & jQuery Workshops – Session 1




Javascript / jQuery Training Workshop


Course 1: July 16th, 2019


6Pm-9PM (3 hours each)


UNO Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center – Room 221


We will dive into the basics of how Javascript works and make it super simple to understand. Using JS in WordPress can be a bit tricky sometimes. We will show you the RIGHT way to integrate any Javascript with your WordPress site. Using this knowledge, you can break free of the confines of any theme and start to blur the lines between being a designer and a developer. This will allow you build any user experience you can imagine right in WordPress. We will also cover how to leverage jQuery to speed up your workflow and create rich user interfaces very quickly.

All of these topics will be presented within the scope of usage within WordPress, however, most of the concepts discussed will be universal and can be applied to web design outside of WordPress.

Prerequisite knowledge: HTML, CSS, Fundamental WordPress Admin knowledge, some very basic PHP is helpful, but not required

Required Software: An account on, Any code editor (We recommend PHPStorm or VS Code), and Local By Flywheel
