Spend a 2 Full Days Immersed With Two Leading JavaScript Masters

Libraries like jQuery can make it fast and easy to work with the DOM, but they can also lead quickly to unmaintainable software. Real mastery comes when you know how the DOM works without simplification or abstraction.

This workshop introduces you to the fundamentals of JavaScript and the DOM. With this knowledge, you can use your tools to create maintainable software that avoids bad choices which spell disaster down the road.

Join Justin and Alexis on day one to solidify your knowledge of JavaScript closure, new keyword, “this", prototypical inheritance, type comparators and coercion. Then on day two learn to build interactive components through pure DOM scripting while learning jQuery and it's utilities.

We are now accepting new registrations to this event. We expect it to be full at capacity with 15 people in-person and 70 participants online, so please get registered today and reserve your seat.

Is This Workshop For Me?

This workshop is for people who are comfortable developing client side JavaScript, but have not mastered the language and the DOM. People who consider themselves quite strong developers will still get a lot out of it. However, novices will find themselves struggling.


Participants should be able to articulate themselves with JavaScript reasonably well. For example, they shouldn’t need to look up how to define a function or write a for loop.  They should know how to do some basic DOM manipulation with a library or natively.

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!"
