Denver Java Users Group Message Board › Still Time to Register for Cask-Strength HTML5 Training in March
Just wanted to remind everyone about the Advanced HTML5 training we're offering in March. (Details and Registration: http://thirstyhead.ev...) The early-bird discount expires at the end of February, so sign up now to get the best deal on pricing.
With over 900 folks on the HTML5 Denver Users Group mailing list, and 100+ at our monthly meeting (http://www.meetup.com..., David Geary and I are regularly asked, "What can I do to take my HTML5 skills to the next level? There is only so much that you can learn in 60 minutes."
That's why we're excited to offer what we're affectionately calling "Cask-Strength HTML5 Training." Taught by Scott Davis (author of "Google Maps: Adding Where to Your Application"), David Geary (author of "Core HTML5 Canvas"), and Kyle Simpson (author of "HTML5 Cookbook"), these 1-day workshops are an opportunity for you to bring your laptop and your enthusiasm for in-depth training sessions.
Scott shares his experience as a seasoned web programmer in "The Modern Web Developer's Toolkit." In this workshop, you'll install a plethora of cutting-edge tools -- Node.js (for running command-line tools), Volo.js (for installing new libraries), Require.js (for dependency management), Grunt.js (for build scripts), Mocha.js (for testing), Blanket.js (for code coverage), JSHint (for linting), Uglify.js (for minification), and more.
Scott has been to Yahoo, Intel, Yale University, and more teaching them about how to make their websites mobile and tablet-ready. In "Airplane-Mode HTML5: Mobile Web Development for Tablets and Smartphones", you'll learn how to make your website look good on any device. If you live between Denver and Boulder and want to stay ahead of the construction on US-36, http://m.us36expressl... (written by Scott) is a great example of the type of application you'll be able to write after this workshop.
Kyle's time at Zynga (the company that builds some of the most popular games for Facebook) taught him a thing or two about writing performant web applications. In "Unleash The Faster Web: Secrets of Website Performance," you'll learn the hard-won lessons of building fast web applications that scale.
And finally, Dave will take you from zero to a finished HTML5 Canvas game in one day. "Writing HTML5 Games: 2D Game Programming Techniques" is your first step towards writing that world-conquering game that runs equally well on desktop browsers, tablets, and smartphones.
If you are ready to take your HTML5 development skills to the next level, we're ready to give you a boost!
