Event description

Description

Did you hear all that buzz around JavaScript? Maybe you already tried to jump in and got stuck in the middle of all these super shiny libraries you absolutely need to know before you can write anything meaningful.

We are here to help you with that. If you want to learn how to build JavaScript applications in React.js, we will share our knowledge and guide you through all the traps and pitfalls that lurk on you in the JavaScript world.

JavaScript Code Academy is going to be the series of eight evening sessions for +- 10 people like you, where we take you from basic building blocks to fully working React.js application. Based on your current experience, you will get familiar with these topics:

  • use React.js for your UI
  • how to maintain application state with Redux
  • identify bottlenecks in your code
  • keep your ass safe by writing unit tests
  • get used to some latest improvements in Javascript language itself
  • touch backend with node.js so you know what's behind

Long story short - we don't want to tell you just how the React.js API looks, but teach you how to use it to your advantage.

Is it for me?

If your have some experience with programming, then yes. You may know how to write software in different languages/environments and now you want to switch to JavaScript world. Maybe you are familiar with HTML, CSS and some jQuery stuff. If this is your case, it's definitely for you.

As we aren't going to teach what the condition, cycle or variable is, it's not recommended for absolute beginners to programming.

When:

Code academy will run every Wednesday, starting on March 1st, 18:00 - 20:00, at MSD (Svornosti 3321/2, Praha 5, next to the railway bridge).

If you are interested, but you will miss some sessions, don't worry - all content is going to be publicly available on Github and we can assist you to catch up individually.

What you need:

If you feel motivated to attend these sessions, just sign up and bring your laptop on first session.
