Advanced Javascript for Java Devs

February, 21 2012

So you think you’ve picked up enough JavaScript to be dangerous, but feel like the whole prototypical language thing is still a mystery. In this session, we’ll go from basic JavaScript to advanced JavaScript. We’ll discuss and code modular JavaScript with CommonJS. We’ll look into the details of a prototype language and discuss things like parasitic inheritance. We’ll also look at JavaScript libraries that will help you get the most out of JavaScript – not jQuery, but a library like UnderscoreJS and SugarJS.

This is a fast paced session meant to bring you up to speed with the latest and greatest JavaScript techniques and tools. Whether you’re building client side JavaScript with HTML5 or Appcelerator Titanium, or server-side JavaScript with node.js, you’ll come away with knowledge and patterns for how the pro’s use JavaScript for building real apps.
