Startup Engineering: frontend JS; social and payment integration; disruption

Join our weekly workshop to evolve engineering skills needed to build a technology startup from the ground up. You are welcome to come to the workshop even if you're not taking the course, as long as you're similarly prepared.

Startup Engineering bridges the gap between academic computer science and production software engineering. Fast-paced introduction to key tools and techniques (command line, dotfiles, text editor, distributed version control, debugging, testing, documentation, reading code, deployments), featuring guest appearances by senior engineers from successful startups and large-scale academic projects.

In this course, students will build a command line application, expose it as a web service, and then link other students' applications and services together to build an HTML5 mobile app. General principles are illustrated through modern Javascript and the latest web technologies, including Node, Backbone, Coffeescript, Bootstrap, Git, and Github.

The workshop format is peer-to-peer flipped learning in which we reinforce and engage with the course content. Participants are expected to in advance be familiar with this week's lessons on Coursera (or equivalent).

It's still possible to sign up to the free course on Coursera.
