Spend a 2 Full Days Immersed With A Leading JavaScript Instructor from Hack Reactor

“There isn't any point to diving into new technologies, or using the hottest libraries, if you don't have a proper understanding of the fundamental characteristics of the JavaScript language." – Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja

The better foundation you have working in pure JavaScript itself, the easier it is to keep up with the latest changes in the industry.

Join Bianca Gandolfo and solidify your knowledge of objects, arrays and prototypes in JavaScript on day 1, then on day 2 master closures, use higher-order functions/callbacks and learn underscore so you have a foundation to build on more complex concepts like functional programming.

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 class is for budding developers with at least 2 months of JavaScript experience and have completed at least one online JavaScript tutorial like Codecademy or CodeSchool; however those with more experience also tend to get a lot out of this course.


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!"
