Join us at our Los Angeles HQ in Venice to master JavaScript closure and scope, 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:

- Understand how closure works under the hood (one of the most misunderstood but most powerful features of JavaScript)

- Understand core JS runtime features - execution context, JavaScript execution model and the variable environment

- Be able to wield, optimize and debug popular pro utility functions like once and memoize

- Be able to implement the module pattern - one of the cleanest and most resilient design patterns in JavaScript

Price: Always free!

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

Online Info: Please join us for the online stream of the workshop here: (online start time may vary by 30 min)

Experience Level:All experience levels welcome. We recommend getting started on our free JavaScript learning platform CSX ( and working on units up to the Closure, Scope, and Execution context unit before the workshop.

We offer free JavaScript workshops several times a week for all levels in-person in LA & NY, and live-streamed online.
