In this two-day workshop you'll learn the basics of frontend development while building a working web app.
Before starting, make sure your computer has up-to-date versions of the following installed:
ctrl + `(backtick, in top left corner of keyboard) to open the built-in terminal
cd(change directory) command to find an appropriate place for your code
git clone https://github.com/Microsoft/frontend-bootcamp.gitinto the terminal to pull down a copy of the workshop code
cd frontend-bootcampto change your current directory to the bootcamp folder
npm installto install all of the project dependencies
code -r .to open the bootcamp code in VS Code
If on a Mac, be sure you've followed these steps first to make the
At this point, your VS Code window should look something like this:
To start the dev "inner loop," run:
This will load the site shown below.
Demos will either be via CodePen (Steps 1, 2 and 3) or done in the step folder. Follow the step README to walkthrough the demo.
Much like demos, exercises are done via CodePen or in the project step folders. These exercises will give you an opportunity to try what was demonstrated in the first step.
For each lesson, the presenter will walk through some demo code to teach core concepts about the topic. Don't worry about writing code at this point. Just follow along via the readmes linked below.
Most lessons also have an exercise portion. Exercise instructions are usually found in the readme for each step's "exercise" folder.
