JavaScript - The Hard Parts ON TOUR - Callbacks and Higher Order Functions

  • Aug 25, 2015 · 7:00 PM

This week we visit MaxCDN for Javascript - The Hard Parts - Callbacks and Higher Order Functions

We'll cover the concepts that 80% of JavaScript engineers do not understand but are at the core of every single successful application. 

This is possible because we'll understand the essence of these tough concepts and then switch into pair-programming through the challenges to cement the concepts

The evening session comprises of: 

6:30-6:45pm: Hangout

6:45-7:15pm: Core JavaScript concept for the challenge and introduction to the secret hack for learning to code - pair-programming
7:15-8pm: Pair-programming

Bring a friend who'd like to build and you can pair program together 

Price: Always free

Prior experience: You've worked through at least the Codecademy JavaScript track and likely some of Eloquent JavaScript (
