Join us at our New York HQ in Tribeca to master recursion in JavaScript, followed by Codesmith drinks and networking! To get the full experience we recommend coming onsite, however a live-stream will be available if you’re unable to make it.

This workshop will be a combination of live interactive lecture and pair programming through challenges, followed by networking and drinks! You will go under-the-hood of JavaScript, so you can confidently tackle new problems and work through blocks.

During this workshop we’ll delve into one of the most powerful but often confusing concepts in programming: functions that call themselves.


- When to use looping vs. recursion

- How to set up recursive functions

- How you can return a value out of a recursive call

Price: Always free!
