Web Videogame Design – A free workshop

May 22, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-4

Have you ever wondered how video games are made? Are you a gamer with a great idea for the next video game, but no clue how to code it?
In this class, we are going to teach how to build a very basic, but functional video game from zero using JavaScript, and trust us it will be fun!
This class will introduce you to the idea of coding and basic logic. It requires no prior programming knowledge, just a basic understanding of how your computer works. It was created to be easy and fun, full of simple yet useful concepts and as a result, you will end up creating a video game to be the envy of all your friends.
JavaScript is a unique language that sometimes confuses even seniors developers. This class offers a clear introduction to the language, easy to follow by the least tech-savvy people. The attendee will go from very simple concepts like how to declare variables, to learning how to use the properties of the browser effectively and every concept in between. By the end you’ll be able to create a simple yet entertaining video game.
Experience required
Little to no prior experience is required. This class is targeted to audiences with zero experience in JavaScript or programming itself.
Location and schedule
The course will be held at Pipeline Doral, Northwest 36th Street #450, Doral, FL.
Park in the Visitors garage and take the elevator to the 4th floor. Remember to validate your ticket at Pipeline’s round desk to avoid paying $15 parking fee.
This training course will run from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM with a 1/2-hour break. Food and drinks will be provided. Arrive 30 mins before event start time to maximize networking opportunities. Bring your business cards; workshops are always a great place to network and meet new opportunities.
