JavaScript for Developers - 21-23 August 2019 | Technopolis (IT Fornebu) | onsdag, 21. august 2019

As Douglas Crockford once said, JavaScript is the world's most misunderstood programming language. It is also one of the world's most popular programming languages and one of the cornerstones of a modern web application development. With web clients becoming thicker and more complex, it is no longer easy to get away with sloppy, ad-hoc JavaScript programming style. In this JavaScript hands-on workshop you will learn how to write good code (by employing its good features and avoiding quirks and common pitfalls).

Learn how to

Apply best practices and avoid quirks and common pitfalls
Use modern language features
Take advantage of JavaScript's functional and dynamic nature
Understand lexical scope and closure
Unit test JavaScript code
Write clean, well-structured, object-oriented code
Apply asynchronous and event-driven patterns


Introduction to unit testing (Jasmine)

object literal
default & guard operators
updating properties & property attributes
property enumeration
removing properties


declaration hoisting
function literal
invocation patterns and this


array literals
length & delete
for vs. for in
arrays vs. associative arrays
filter/map/reduce & co

Functions, part two

lexical scope
revealing module pattern

Unit testing asynchronous code

constructor and factory functions


const & let
template strings
object literals
default parameters
fat-arrow functions
destructuring objects and arrays
spread & rest operator

Asynchronous programming patterns


Functions, part three

are first-class
partial application

About the Instructor

The passion for programming and making new discoveries took me from unlocking the secrets of C=64 machine language to all things web. Today, after 20 years of professional experience, the sheer excitement and pride of making a new technologies "work" is still driving me every day.
I've worked on various domains in different industries (e-government, fixed-odds betting, online gaming, social networks, investment banking) and with different technology stacks. Designed and helped building several scalable, high-throughput, low-latency transaction processing systems. One of the founding fathers of MindMup.
Today, I'm helping ambitious teams achieve their goals and improve how they build software.
Regularly giving talks at various meetups and software development conferences.
