Build Right: Modern JavaScript Workshop

Did you resolve to get better at JavaScript in 2017? Well, you’re in luck! On Thursday, February 2, we’re hosting our first workshop of 2017; Build Right: Modern JavaScript, presented by Adam Simpson and Ryan Cromwell of Sparkbox!

The workshop will take place from 10 am – 5 pm at Pair Networks on Pittsburgh’s South Side. Tickets are on sale NOW!

Whether it’s a website or web app, building with today’s JavaScript ecosystem can appear daunting. Customers, users, and Google demand great performance over finicky mobile networks and smooth experiences across a broadening array of devices, all while the underlying language—JavaScript—continuously evolves. In this workshop, you’ll receive hands-on experience architecting modern JavaScript systems alongside insight into JavaScript’s evolving role on the web.

We’ll discuss the role of JavaScript in today’s web as well as the tools powering modern JavaScript development. Throughout the workshop, we’ll examine some of the features making their way into developers’ hands, enabling a more concise, literate, and safe codebase.

Together, we’ll practice:
* Classes
* Modules, Babel, and Webpack
* Destructuring
* Architecting Modern JavaScript Apps and Sites
* Patterns for Frontend JavaScript
* Isomorphic and Progressive Enhancement
* Build Tooling
* Repository Organization

Your ticket to this workshop will include plenty of coffee, snacks, and lunch!
