Principles 5

Web Programming with JavaScript

AGES 13 - 19
Course Overview:
At SG Code Campus, we think that learning to program the web is a challenging but ultimately rewarding endeavour because there are few skills truly as enabling as being able to create a web application. Our approach to web programming is decidedly opinionated in that it assumes that students have already acquired the skills needed to read and write non-trivial computer programs before learning how those skills can be applied to the web domain.
Programming the web can broadly be decomposed into three connected tasks: structuring content, designing the appearance of said content, and programming applications based on that content. Learning to build on the web can thus be reduced to learning about the associated technologies which address these concerns - HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
The course will first start with a primer of the JavaScript programming language and compare it to other popular languages students are familiar with like Python, before delving into the sister technologies of HTML and CSS. At the end of the course, Code Campers will be able to build their own landing pages and simple frontend web applications through the use of popular web frameworks like Bootstrap.
Principles 5
Hear from our Students!
Through Principles 5 I was able to learn and understand HTML, CSS and JS which allowed me to be able to use these for school research projects :) With these skills becoming increasingly relevant and convenient in todays world, these are definitely useful skills worth learning!!
