Learn about Client-Side JavaScript Frameworks with Launch Academy!

Do you have experience with Javascript programming? Looking to delve into the Javascript MVC frameworks needed to build modern Web Applications? Want to know more about Backbone, Angular, or Ember? This course is for you!

Javascript Frameworks are essential for modern Web Applications. This interactive 4 hour workshop will give you a crash course in client-side Javascript frameworks!

Who should attend?

Understanding Javascript Frameworks is designed for the following audiences:

- Those building Web Applications
- Those building HTML/mobile applications
- Those interested in learning about Backbone.js, Angular.js, or Ember.js
- Those wanting to explore the Javascript MVC (MV*) model

What we will cover:

- Overview of Javascript Frameworks
- When to use a Framework
- When not to use a Framework
- Details of the MV* model on the client
- The models
- The views
- The “Whatever”: Controllers, Routers, etc.
- REST and other server communications
- Underpinning libraries: jQuery, Zepto, Underscore
- Coffee Script - should you? Dare you?
- Frameworks: Backbone, Angular, Ember
- Reuse and complexity - the downside to using lots of libraries

What to expect:

The course will be presented through a series of short lectures and a team-based project that will allow you to apply what you’ve learned and gradually build out a simple MV* project. These lectures will introduce you to the theories, concepts and techniques used in developing a client side javascript MV* application. The in-class project will be a guided, hands-on, experience building a fully-functioning application utilizing Google’s Freebase webservice (http://www.freebase.com/)

What you will learn:

- Develop a broader understanding of why, when, and how to use a JavaScript Framework
- Understand the core elements of a MV* pattern
- Evaluate the capabilities of existing MV* frameworks
- Build the knowledge required to select appropriate tools based on requirements
