Beyond the Basics: Design Patterns in JS


This talk will introduce fundamental Design Patterns for JavaScript, and how to use them to build large-scale applications with loose coupling and scalability in mind. We will also take a deeper dive into the pros and cons of different JavaScript modularization strategies, such as AMD, CommonJS and ES2015.

About Us

We are a group of women focused on hands-on coding practice. We share best practice with a healthy combination of dialogue and practice, not just discussion.

Most material is geared towards those actively practicing coding for a significant portion of their time. They have experience with some of the topics we discuss and want to improve. Novice programmers will struggle to keep pace with the group!

In general, familiarity with at least one of the following languages and surrounding ecosystems is helpful: JavaScript, Python, or Ruby.

Beyond the Basics occurs approximately every other Thursday.
