Location image of event venue


The helloJS Academy aims at bringing interesting and valuable topics in the limelight for JavaScript developers, teaching and learning from one another to grow both as individuals and as a community. The first edition of the helloJS Academy will be held on the 23th of July with a brief follow up on the 30th of July.

The Thorin training will be held by Adrian Bunta (https://www.linkedin.com/in/adrian-bunta-595a1164), Thorin.js creator and Node mastermind. During the training you will be able to take notes while watching live coding. The training itself will be a mixture of module presentation and a live build for a small single page app that you will be able to explore and work on after the training. The follow up on the 30th of July will handle code review for the work everybody did on the app. The training will be interactive, with a Q&A section after each part.
