Event Details

Introduction

The best way to learn web development is to start building web applications. We've designed an experience around doing just that.

This course is focused on building a product. We'll guide you through re-creating our own version of the popular website, Airbnb.

We will build everything together, line-by-line. We end with a working application. No slides, no fluff. Just focused, practical guidance.


Schedule

Session 1: October 5th & 6th, 10AM - 5PM (both days)

Session 2: October 12th & 13th, 10AM - 5PM (both days)


Instructors

Trevor McLeod, Brian Falk, and Andy Tzou will be teaching. Please visit NodeLingo to learn more about the instructors.


Overview

We will be using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to re-build Airbnb from scratch. In the process of creating our own web API, we will also be learning Node.js, a powerful "server-side" JavaScript platform. Learning Node.js delivers two key advantages: (1) allows us to focus on learning a single language (JavaScript) and (2) introduces you to one of the most popular platforms for web development that companies like Airbnb are already using today!

Saturday, October 5th & Sunday, October 6th

We will focus on building a rich, responsive, front-end application to display information and allow users to create, book, and query for rentals. We'll be focused on fundamentals, while also leveraging some of the most prominent tools: JQuery, Twitter Bootstrap and Handlebars.js. Teaching solid, fundamental JavaScript remains our mission throughout.

The goal for the first weekend is to introduce and implement patterns for consuming web APIs and displaying data in a simple, clean user interface. 

Saturday, October 12th & Sunday, October 13th

During the second weekend, we will dive into server-side web development and engineer our own API. We will be using Node.js to design our back-end. Again, we'll be leveraging prominent tools like Express and MongoDB to build.

The goal for the second weekend is to understand Node.js' event-based architecture and learn how to create RESTful services that accept and respond to web requests.


Conclusion

The patterns we will cover are meant to be replicated across a wide range of domains, and we've carefully chosen each component to be representative of the tasks you'll encounter while building modern web applications.

What you'll learn: HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Express, MongoDB, and Node.js.


Pre-reqs

Experience building with HTML/CSS and working knowledge of JavaScript is required. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns about the required experience level.
