Basics of Javascript Workshop

October 23 @ 6:30 pm - October 24 @ 9:30 pm

This workshop is a part of our Web Dev Track, although it may be taken separately.


“Any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript.” is a quote from Jeff Atwood (the cofounder of StackOverflow). It’s hard to argue against JavaScript right now, with how it’s taking over everything from Front End Development (with React, Angular & Vue), Backend Development (with NodeJS), Mobile Development (React Native, Ionic & Progressive Web Apps) and even IoT!

Regardless of what future languages you may use, the fact is that if you want to do something on the web, then you pretty much have to have a strong understanding of JavaScript.
