Gromov-Witten invariants involve the enumerative geometry of curves in varieties. I will introduce the moduli spaces of stable maps, virtual classes, and the CohFT axioms. The basic techniques of computation (localization, degeneration, and classification) will be discussed in several examples. Open questions about Gromov-Witten generating functions and Gromov-Witten cycle classes will be presented.
