Transcript from the "Course Introduction" Lesson
[00:01:00] Most of us have completed the pre-event survey. So I kind of have an idea of your background, your expectations for the class and things like that. Normally I would do a round of introductions, but since we're running a few minutes behind, I'll probably save that for, I'll come around and meet the in person people one by one during exercise time just for fun.
[00:01:46] So, lot's of fun stuff coming up. For those of you who haven't seen, we have some links to the slides, it's a bit.ly/js102-slides1, as well as bit.ly/js102-exercises, which that's where we'll be going during the exercise time. All right, well let's get started. So first thing is who is this class for?
[00:02:10] So maybe you've been studying on your own for a few months on Code Academy, Khan Academy or more. And you're thinking, okay, what's that next step? I've done all the beginner resources but I want more, and I can't seem to find that middle ground. And I'm not able to solidify and practice those concepts that I was introduced in these beginner tutorials.
[00:02:54] And this class initially designed actually to help people who don't have any traditional computer science experience get into Hack Reactor. So for those of you who are interested in that, this course is perfect for that. Cool, so like I mentioned before, this is a two part course that I teach in the evenings and on the weekend at Hack Reactor.
[00:03:52] Or I don't know, I think the next step is take over the world generally. But you know, whatever you want to do.
