Description

Color Coded: From Beginner to Advanced JavaScript

Welcome to our JavaScript Workshop, where we'll teach you tools to get you to more advanced levels. Over the course of three workshops, we'll explore some of the more advanced features of the JavaScript language and how to build production-ready JavaScript applications.

We will not learn (deeply) about specific JavaScript frameworks (Angular, React, Vue, etc.). Instead, we'll focus on how to create maintainable code using patterns and best practices which transcend frameworks.

Prerequisites

In order to get the most from these workshops you should already:

  • Have a basic understanding of JavaScript
    • Loops, functions, modules, callbacks
  • Understand version control using git
    • clone, commit, push, pull, merge
  • Have built small to medium-sized JavaScript applications
  • Have some familiarity with databases
    • What they are, why we use them
    • Know basic SQL
