How We'll Spend the Day

We've already held over 80 workshops holding thousands attendees in-person and online. 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.
We’ll begin with an overview everyone's favorite interview question: how does the internet work. Starting from the initial request and going all the way to a server, we’ll cover all the steps along the way.

After that we’ll jump into the command line and cover some basic commands such as navigating directories and deleting files. Then we’ll learn one of the most useful skills out there: VIM. Vi Improved is installed on most linux based systems so mastering VIM is a must for aspiring Full Stack and Dev Op Engineers.

Once we’ve mastered the command line and VIM, we get to the really fun stuff: buying a domain and a virtual private server (VPS). After setting up our VPS and learning the ins and outs of Nginx, we’ll setup a Node server and build a deploy system using Gulp and Forever so that our server is ready to handle requests.

8:30 Introduction
9:00 How the Internet Works
10:00 Domains, DNS, and Command Line Basics
10:30 VIM

Is This Workshop For Me?

This class is for Javascript Engineers with little to no knowledge of Linux based backend systems or for those interested in learning more about working across the stack. As we will be learning from the perspective of a Frontend Engineer, this class is probably not for people new to programming or for those unfamiliar with basic JavaScript concepts.


While you don’t have know the 7 layer model or have written a shell script before, it’s helpful to have a rudimentary knowledge of Unix-like systems and what bash/zsh are. If you manage your own website or regularly SSH into servers to fix issues, this class may be a bit elementary for you. The ideal student is someone who has logged into a server before and run some commands but not really understood what they were doing or someone who feels they have a good handle on the Frontend and would like to know more about Backend/Server operations.

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!"
