programmingbasics: Programming Basics

Learn the basics to programming. No experience required.

With a series of online lessons, each taking only about 15 minutes to complete, I will teach you the basics of programming using the JavaScript language, "the language of the web". Armed with that knowledge I will help you understand the workings of a sample JigSaw puzzle game. After this experience I will offer my assistance as you write a program of your own design. This is an experiment in grass roots programming instruction for non-technical users. Collaboration and communication is highly encouraged. By the end I hope you are all able to understand how the following ~100 line sample app works.
