Javascript for Designers

Javascript is one of the most used languages in the world but its learning curve is relatively steep. In our short course, we'll teach you in a creative, fun way how to work with Javascript, aimed at people who design.

This course, aimed at beginners, is designed to get you up to speed with how Javascript works, how to think about event-driven code (e.g. on click, on scroll, on movement) and generally how to make design effects you'll want to use in your own projects.

You don't need to be a designer to join the course – all we require is a little knowledge of HTML and CSS.

What you'll learn

Learn how modern Javascript (ES6+) works, from variables and strings to arrays and objects

How to work with browser interactions such as clicks, hovers, mouse movements and scroll events

Work with smooth animations, transitions and delays to make your design work next-level good

Add in subtle (or not-so-subtle, it's up to you!) parallax effects to your design work

Context is everything – make design changes, on the fly, as you scroll up and down the page

Best of all... you'll learn how to be a better, more confident digital designer

Here’s how we’re different...

Support that actually helps.

Forever-access to our online Slack community of creative students from around the world, learning to code together, plus a Q+A section on every page. With our team based worldwide, we can support you whether you're coding early in the morning or late at night.

Real-world projects you'll want to create and remix.

Our course is practical, unlike other programs that take forever before you make your first real-world project. We care about design and focus on creative industries — it's not a computer science lecture, you're learning to make projects you'd want to make.

Structured, and flexible.

Our course is set-up to deliver real projects – no bullshit! – and we designed it so it’s totally flexible. While you can learn at your own pace, we’ll be here to guide you through-out your learning.

Design focused.

You don't need to be creative to take our courses, but everything we do is focused on making beautiful sites you actually want to make. This isn't your average code school — we focus on the practical aspect of learning.

Who is the course for?

Anyone who is looking to learn Javascript from scratch in a creative, practical way.

You do not need any Javascript knowledge for this course. We would recommend a little knowledge of HTML and CSS before this course starts – if you don't have HTML and CSS knowledge, try our book or join our Foundation HTML, CSS + JS course.

You don't necessarily need to be a designer to join this course – you can work in any industry to join – but we will be teaching in a more creative style than most other Javascript courses you may see online.

What do I need?

A computer with Mac OS X 10.9 or above, Windows XP or above, or a recent Linux version installed and a broadband internet connection. That’s it!
