Our final jQuery-focused class will touch on a number of other common
plugins that are found in the wild:
- Tooltip/Popover (Bootstrap) - mouse over elements to create tooltips
- Datepicker (jQuery UI) - fancy datepickers appearing near your input fields
- Accordion (jQuery UI) - collapse and unfold lists of elements
- Masked input - provide visual guidance for field entry
- ScrollTo - smoothly scroll to a location on the page
- Cycle - make easy slideshows
- Chosen - style dropdowns

There are countless others, but these have helped me through many
projects. After this class, we'll start talking about different
aspects of HTML5 - new elements, new technologies, and new
perspectives on web development.

--- The usual details follow below: ---

Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and put them to good use! This class,
taught by Jeffrey Carl Faden, is aimed at 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 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. It is completely fine to jump in
half-way - the recaps and labs should help you get up to speed.

As always, this class and the space in which it's taught are entirely
free to attend. Read all of the details here:
