JavaScript 101: Hands-on Workshop

  • Jun 24, 2012 · 12:00 PM

In case you missed our first iteration of our workshops this is your second chance.  Due to the first class selling out quickly there have been requests for another iteration, so here it is so RSVP as soon as possible.

In today's day-long workshop we will learn how to code in core JavaScript.  No frameworks, no libraries, just plain ole' JavaScript.

This is a hands-on workshop where we will learn and apply JavaScript in one day.  It will not make you an expert overnight, but it will give you an invaluable shortcut to picking it up quickly.

The workshop will be taught by myself, Milan Adamovsky.  If you've come to my other events you may be familiar with my progressive teaching/presenting style - and this will be no different.  My goal is to engrave this knowledge in you and give you a solid understanding of the topic.  This is a rare opportunity for you to learn JavaScript in an extended session from someone who's been doing this for over 10+ years.

There is a $25 RSVP fee to as this is a day-long event.  You didn't expect you can learn JavaScript in one hour?  The fee covers my time, food, drinks, and put towards the treasury for growing this group.

By the end of this workshop you should be able to code a basic JavaScript application and understand the workings of the moving parts to make it do what you want it to do.

This is a day-long workshop to allow for coding, questions, exercises, and have an interactive experience.

Food and refreshments will be provided.

    Enjoyed myself tremendously. Good crowd, great interactive session, good comments, etc. I was glad we got through the hands-on coding as well as the slides! Our subsequent classes will be more of this format. Great people!!

    Great introduction to Javascript--well-paced, hands-on, and taught by somebody who really knows and loves the language. The only detriment to the class was one or two attendees who obviously had come with a strong command of javascript and insisted on expanding on all the instructor's answers to questions with their own thoughts or showing off by asking questions far outside the scope of what was being discussed. Overall, though, Milan handled those moments as best as possible and did a great job of trying to balance the needs and questions of students of all levels of ability.

    Milan presented and instructed with ease. He has vast amounts of knowledge and was able to keep everyone's interest piqued on the primary, and other applications as they pertained to JavaScript and Coding respectively. I attended from out of town, have already paid for JavaScript 201 and preparing to modify my schedule to attend his other Workshops. The class was motivated by the in-depth questions that were put to Milan who fielded each one expertly. He is a great Instructor and without question, a JavaScript Subject Matter Expert. Looking forward to his getting me to Intermediate then Advanced level. VERY PLEASED...

    You can download Aptana Studio 3 which I find to be excellent. It is free, integrates with Git seamlessly, and to those who have used Eclipse - it is a superset thereof.

    You do not NEED it, but if you don't have an IDE (Integrated Development Environment - or in layman terms: editor) you may want to use this one - or just use the browser and a simple text editor such as notepad or textedit. I will teach using the most primitive toolset so you can survive anywhere ;)

    What is IDE? Is that something I have to bring with me? Sorry if this seems dumb. But I really need something built from ground up.

  • Derek S.

    Are we running right out of a browser? IDE? Just curious.

    @Robby, unfortunately there is no waiting list. If anyone is interested in a repeat of this event please email me at [masked] and I will try to set one up.

    I paid one (1) dollar on Pay pal. However, Bank of America showed a
    pending transaction of oen dollar and one penny ($1.01).......

    Sounds like the work of an accountant who just got fired as
    CEO of Yahoo!
