Building For The Web
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 9:00 AM - Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 6:00 PM (AST)
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Training for professional web developers
Three days of intense hands-on learning about modern web application development, the methods, the tools and the techniques used by startups and fast-moving enterprise environments.
San Juan • August 12, 13, 14 - 2014
We designed the training program of our dreams. This is going to be an epic adventure on a very cool setting surrounded by others just like you. We all want to learn and be masters of the web.
The venue is a super modern building with very fast internet access and brand new A/V facilities. All attendees will enjoy breakfast, real lunch (not a sanwidch box) and snacks, drinks and coffee all day long to fuel our brains.
On each day of training we'll start with some theory, background and discussing the "state of the art" of the current subject. The sessions will be super informal and interactive, you can ask as much as you want and you'll get an answer.
After lunch we'll get our hands dirty by building real world web applications, step by step. We'll start with something simple but very quickly we'll get to the techniques startups and enterprise developers are using to build modern web applications "at scale". It's going to be a lot of fun.
Who should attend?
Tell me more
Below you'll find a few of the topics we are going to cover on the training. As you can see it's going to be quite an intense ride so rest well and come ready.
Day 1: Workflows, agility and collaboration
Day 2: The Backend
Day 3: The Web Client
We are going to be covering a lot of subjects in a very short amount of time. Each day will be about 10 hours in total with at least 8 hours dedicated to content. Days are going to be divided into two main sessions. The first part of the day will cover a lot of theory, best practices and the mental models needed to succeed in the specific area. This part of the day will end in a introduction of the specific subjects and technologies that are going to be using on the second part of the day. After lunch we are going to start the hand-on workshops. We'll make a selection of the previously discussed technologies and design patterns and help you build something useful and aplicable in the real world today.
Getting ready for the event
Weeks before the event the team will send you instructions on how to setup your laptop (you need a laptop). The setup is very straight forward and based on a virtual machine. That way we are all using the same development environment. A few days before the event we'll have a Google Hangout to help people setup their systems if someone is having issues. The idea is to waste as little time as possible and allow you to get the maximum out of the workshops.

Don't forget your laptop
Since we are going to be doing a lot of hands on work you need to bring your laptop (and power cord). Weeks before the event we are going to reach out to you to help you setup your system with all things needed for the training. A few days before we'll do a live web cast to answer questions and help you be ready before the training begins. We don't want to waste your time installing software instead of doing real work.
