“The one day JS workshop covered a lot of ground and brought our team up to speed on the latest features of ECMAScript 6, providing a solid foundation for subsequent React training.”
Our one day workshop covers all the core ES5 features in a rapid, hands on manner using the tried and tested format of 20 minutes of theory followed by 20 minutes of exercises in pairs. We cover basic topics like core types, JSON and less familiar ones such as prototypical inheritance and all the different function invocation patterns. We focus on the good parts and highlight the bad ones, offering productivity tips and showing common conventions. You can be sure that you will walk away with some new insight into the language, even if you’re a seasoned JS veteran.
In addition to the language, we also cover tools like debuggers and linters. More recently, we’ve started including more and more content on ES6 which, thanks to transpilers and improving support from engines, is starting to become widely used both in the browser and on the server. Topics like Promises and generators crop up again in our other workshops on Node.js and Angular.
