Foundations - Part I

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE SIGNING UP :)

After running two events it has become obvious that we need to rethink the way we address some of the subjects. We are lucky to have such a diverse community and different levels of understanding Programing in general and Javascript in particular. At the same time it has been challenging to level the playing field.

The course is still aimed at beginners in Javascript and even beginners in Programing, so we are going to slow down the pace and go back to the basics of the language.

I'm starting a Foundations series that will span across four (4) events. I highly recommend you attend all 4 if you are a beginner.

If you are intermediate or advanced or even have experience from another language I still think you will find some very useful information in this series but beware that the pace might feel slow for you and I will be very conservative with the time and not spend any on advance concepts.

I'm confident that after this series we will all have the baggage needed to start developing small applications and be able to make smart decisions about which library or framework to use as a helper.

In the first installment we will look at:

  1. Variables
  2. Conditional statements
  3. Review loops

Regarding online availability, an effort will be made to have some of the materials online but I can't promise anything since it's a very demanding process and time is very terse right now.

Cheers,

    I provided my gmail when I changed my RSVP from "yes" to "no", but I'm not seeing any update about where the online experience was. Since gmail was required I'm thinking maybe it was a google hangout and therefore not archived?? Anything archived anywhere?

    Final reminder to update your RSVP if you are planning on attending in person or online. Like I mentioned before the venue can seat 35 people max and we will order pizza for that much, the event will be broadcasted online on youtube via Google hangout if you have not done so already send me your gmail address if you plan attending online and change your RSVP to NO so we have a good head count.
    See you all tonight - virtually or physically
    Cheers :)

    Ady, I'm coming in person. But I have a question. If not on this evening, possibly on the next, could you go over how you install a Phonegap plugin for an Xcode environment? It seems very confusing and I'm sure to see it once would clarify a lot. Thanks.

      Indeed we can look into Cordova another time my friend :)

    Thanks!

    The two venues I was hoping for did not pan out for Monday. We can use the Avenue Code office and in the second room we will be able to seat comfortably up to 35 people for this session. I will broadcast it live on youtube via Google Hangout for those of you who want to see it online. Please note that the priority will be given to those of you who have already signed in.
    Send me an email letting me know if you plan on attending online so I can send you an invite for that. You will need a working gmail email.
    Cheers :)
