Join us at our Los Angeles HQ in Venice to master JavaScript callbacks and higher order functions, 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 will cover:

- Building functions like map, reduce, and filter, from scratch

- Using higher order functions to keep code clean, even in complex situations

- How to diagram through higher order functions and callbacks scenarios

Price: Always free!

Parking Info: If you’re attending in person we have free parking for the workshop in the lot.
