Hi Folks, here are a couple of upcoming local JS-related events that you might be interested in.
RubyNation is DC's Ruby and Rails conference. This is mostly Ruby, of course, but there are several JS talks including one on AngularJS and another on RubyJS. This year we will be in Silver Spring, Maryland June 13-15. June 13th will be a Rails Girls training day (http://railsgirls.com/dc
) and the full two tracked conference will be June 14-15 (www.rubynation.org
). Use the discount "dcruby" to get $30 off if you would like to attend.
is coming to town (it says DC on the site, but it is in Reston, VA at Near Infinity's training center).
This is a great series of HTML5 training days, each
day offered individually. They are taught by Scott Davis and Kyle
Simpson, both experts in the new Web Platform standards. I've seen these
guys speak before and loved it. Both are great teachers worth going out
of your way to see.
The information that I have on these classes is that they
are "all typing, all the time". So, you will get lots of hands on
experience. Also, they are "backend agnostic" so they apply to anyone
just wishing to learn the front end without respect to your backend
From the email I got from Scott Davis: A 60 minute UG
talk is a great way to get introduced to a topic, but you can't really
learn it until you type it yourself and "prove it in code". The HTML5
Roadshow is a series of hands-on, in-depth workshops taught by industry
experts. This is intermediate-to-advanced "cask-strength" training
targeted at working professionals in the field.
The specific session days are:
The Modern Web Developer's Toolkit on May 20
Airplane-Mode HTML5: Mobile Web Development for Tablets and Smartphones on May 22
Unleash The Faster Web: Secrets of Website Performance on May 23
Node.js: More than just another web server on May 24
Sounds great. I know I will be at a couple of these.
