Here’s why you should join us!

In this 2 day workshop, we’re going to strengthen our collective foundational understanding of the JavaScript language. We’ll dig deeply into the three core foundations of the language: types/coercion, scope/closure, and this/prototypes/classes. Some of the things you’ll learn:

  • Why coercion is not only NOT a “bad part”, but one of the overlooked keys to using the language more effectively
  • How the JS engine actually handles your code (hint: it compiles it!) and what that means for scope
  • What closure is really all about, and how it helps us with modular design
  • Which this is this this?
  • What the relationship is between prototypes and classes, and what delegation is all about

Spend the Day Immersed With a Leading JavaScript Master

Our goal is to fully understand not just what we do with JS but how it works. In fact, we'll learn to focus more of our learning effort on why and how than on what. That habit will pay off far beyond this class, no matter what you're learning.

Front end development has never been more powerful or expressive, with all the amazing tools, frameworks, and patterns available to choose from in such a vibrant and broad ecosystem. But the one key shared truth across all of it is: understanding JS deeply is the most important thing you can do to advance your development skills. You'll be better at React or Angular or Vue or Webpack or whatever else is the hot buzzword, if you invest your time to get better at JavaScript the language.

How We'll Spend Each Day

You get JavaScript, don't you? I mean, you can ship features, so you must understand JS well enough, right!?

The trouble is, if we're being honest, most of us have to admit that we write a lot of JS that we only partially understand. As long as it's not broken, we can usually get away with the pragmatism of “just enough". But when things go off the happy path, understanding the language more deeply is really the only hope we have of properly and effectively address the problem.

Is This Workshop For Me?

For the widely read and acclaimed book series “You Don't Know JS", I wanted to challenge readers to change their attitude and thinking about “knowing" the language, to be not just something to attain but rather an approach to pursue ongoing. This course is the perfect companion to those books, acting as a guide to get you started on that journey to know your JavaScript better.

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 what you're getting here and have ran lots of workshops… so we've almost never have requests for refunds (99.8% satisfaction rate).

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!"
