Here’s why you should join us on Day 1 (Advanced JavaScript):

  • Discover lexical scope and closure, and practice using it for code organization..
  • Discover and gain understanding of the `this` keyword, how it gets bound, and how that helps with code re-use and flexibility..
  • Discover and practice with the common .prototype style of coding (classical JS inheritance)..
  • Discover simpler OO style of code without classes — “behavior delegation”..
  • Discover practical steps to think in an async-patterns way, with callbacks, promises, and generators..

Here’s why you should join us on Day 2 (Realtime Node.js):

  • Discover node.js code organization (modules) and data transfer/flow using streams..
  • Discover and apply async-patterns with practice of coding simple async flow control..
  • Discover how to handle basic routing/response for page requests (and Ajax), serving static files..
  • Discover wiring up to provide basic websockets connectivity to a simple example app, using 2-way communications and broadcast messages..
  • Discover WebRTC peer-to-peer communications, using websockets for signaling, and HTML5 APIs in the page to wire up shared video/data between two connected pages..

Your ticket includes the full workshop (online or in-person), immediately available replay videos, plus a complimentary 6 month membership to watch all our video courses (a $234 value)

Spend a 2 Full Days Immersed With A Leading JavaScript & Node.js Master

The rise of JavaScript on both the client and the server is here. Deep JavaScript knowledge is critical to building robust web applications in both client and server. Node.js is in use by Microsoft, VMWare, Ebay, Yahoo, and many top tech companies because of the performance characterists of its event-driven architecture and vibrance of its open source community.

Come join Kyle Simpson on Day 1 to learn the fundementals and advanced parts of the JavaScript language like scopes, closures, functions, callbacks, promises and generators. Then on day 2 you will dive into realtime communication on the web with node.js and how to manage the asychronous nature of Node.

We are now accepting new registrations to this event. We expect it to be full at capacity with 70 participants so please get registered today and reserve your seat.

How We'll Spend Each Day

We've already held over 19 workshops holding over 1000 attendees. In this time we've discovered ways to schedule the day so it goes smoothly and efficiently.

Regardless if you're in-person or participating with us online you'll have the full ability to replay things you missed, get your questions answered LIVE and interact with the teacher throughout the day.

There's 4 in-depth exercises the first day and about 10 medium-sized exercises the second day. Each exercise flows inline with teaching, after a concept is taught. Exercises are typically (time depending) given 10-20 minutes of free coding, with 5-10 minutes of guided solution at the end to wrap up.

Day 1: Advanced JS

This is an “advanced JS" course that aims to deeply teach you the things that you have to understand about the core mechanics of JS so that when you dive into something like node.js, you're not completely lost.

In day 1 we cover: scope, hoisting, closure, `this`, prototypes, callback async, promises async and generators async.

Day 2: Realtime Node.js

With a much deeper understanding of JS from day 1, today we will dive completely into node.js.

We'll see right away how our knowledge from day 1 applies to: the module pattern for organizing our node.js app code, async flow control for wrangling async tasks all over node, then we'll talk about how we move data around in node, mostly through streams.

Finally, we'll look at how we handle various communication tasks in node: the server-side response of an Ajax request, set up and handle web sockets ( communication, and signaling for peer-to-peer (webrtc).

The Price

The price for attending this full day workshop is simply the cost of becoming a monthly ($39) member. If you have already attended one, you know this is a tremendous value. If you haven’t, you may be wondering if it’s truly worth becoming a member.

Browse through just a few of the testimonials and you’ll see that people RAVE over these workshops. They’re unique and provide an experience and education you simple cannot find anywhere else.

You’re getting access to some of the brightest, most highly sought after experts in the world, covering topics very few people discuss in detail. Many attendees report learning more in this full day workshop than they did about a particular topics in the past 1-2 years combined.

Combine that with access to thousands of unique, high quality videos in our membership area with 500 hours of in-depth training from world renowned experts and you’ll see why this is a bargain.

  1. These workshops are different from any others you’ve attended. They cover everything, from the basics to advanced material. All of which are available for replay so you can go back and review as your skill grows.

  2. We get a lot of people saying they are scared to join… until it was over. Then they brag about how much of an amazing value they got for the price.

  3. You’re also getting videos of the workshop, plus ALL other workshops we’ve recorded, instantly!

Is This Workshop For Me?

Prerequisites Day 1:
You must have intermediate (1+ years) JavaScript experience (not just jQuery)

Objectives Day 1:
Gain a solid understanding of the main mechanics in the JavaScript language from scope to closure to this to prototypes, so that we can understand higher-order patterns like async-flow-control. The goal is that you have a very solid understanding of JS in day 1, so that we can explore node.s in day 2 more deeply without being lost in the JS.

Prerequisites Day 2:
You must have: intermediate-to-advanced JS (1-2 years minimum experience) and know the concepts covered in day 1 of the workshop, basic understanding of what node.js is, and a basic understanding of how web servers enable browser applications

Objectives Day 2:
Get a solid understanding of how to structure and write code in a node.js environment, and how to enable real-time communications for browser applications with node's capabilities.

You'll Either LOVE This Workshop Or You Don't Pay. Period.

Our attendees are ecstatic by the high-quality, relevant content they receive at these workshops.

We cover everything in explicit detail (and the things we miss are covered by answers to YOUR questions) from basic to advanced tactics you can start working with the very same day. We don't want you to miss out on this opportunity because you've been to less-than-stellar workshops in the past. We promise you, ours are very unique.

That's why if you attend the workshop and aren't absolutely thrilled with the content… if you don't think it's worth the admission price… We refuse to accept your money. We will more than gladly issue you a full refund, so you risk nothing.

We're very specific about exactly what you're getting here… so we rarely ever have requests for refunds.

What Past Attendees Are Saying

"Superb presentation from a genuine domain expert. I learned a ton today."

Steve Jakubowski

"Keep up the good work. I've attended a lot of online workshops, and they are very shallow and unpractical. Most of the time, online people are treated as second class, but still paying citizens. Here we get all the content and get to participate as well (if only there was a way to get those cookies...)."

Adrian Murillo

"The class was great. It was really cool to get a bunch of links to example code to look at during the presentation and after the class."

Nate Yourchuck

"Good location and facility. Great technology for capture, presentation layout and video streaming. Really excellent being able to view the videos afterwards. It takes away the sense of having to absorb everything immediately or else lose it into the ether. It was fun. What more can you ask for?"

Laurence Bates

"Really well run...loved the communication pre-event. Very impressed with everything...this was my first online conference purchase, but I would definitely consider doing it again."

Jeff Sims

"I really enjoyed the online workshop experience. It is much better than just watching videos. I was able to participate in the conversations and benefit from other folks' questions."

Dana Greenberg

"You guys did a really great job! I cannot say enough good things about the experience."

Richard Ranke

"Everything was first class: excellent instructor, material, video, moderator, audio. Thank you!"
