Event Details

Introduction to JavaScript

Many software developers have an impression that JavaScript is a second-league interpreted language with the main purpose of making Web pages a little prettier. The reality is different though. JavaScript is a powerful, flexible, dynamically typed language that supports inheritance. But mastering JavaScript can present a challenge to software developers because of its loosely-typed dynamic nature.

Why you may want to learn JavaScript?

HTML5 becomes a new buzzword and adding JavaScript to your skill set makes you a more valuable software developer.  You may not know the best kept secret – 80% of any HTML5 project is spent writing JavaScript code. Such projects use one of many JavaScript frameworks which include convenient components, functions, effects, and promise to solve Web browser incompatibilities, but in the end of day it’s still about JavaScript programming.

The goal of this online workshop is to introduce you to this very interesting language. We are using webex-like live training where attendees can interact with the instructor, see his monitor and hear his voice. Each of these sessions includes several walkthroughs where attendees will have to complete short assignments on their own computers. Each attendee will receive a set of coding exercises (with solutions) supporting the materials covered in this workshop.

This training will be conducted in English. It will consist of six 2-hour online lessons that will take place on Sundays at 9:00AM  New York time.
