Sam Scott, Sheridan College

Presented at Leaside High School on February 15, 2013

1. Motivation

  • Build enthusiasm for Computer Science
  • Introduce students to an increasingly relevant app development language (see web vs. native, Tizen and FireFox OS)
  • Detatch intro to JavaScript from deep knowledge of HTML and CSS

2. The Code

3. The Handouts

4. Other Resources

  • w3schools is an excellent resource for JavaScript, HTML, and HTML5
  • My textbook is very much a work in progress but might be particularly useful if you're coming from a Java background.
