Online JavaScript Masterclass on June 24

May 27th, 2010

This summer, why not brush up your JavaScript skills? Really know what this does? Or what a prototype chain is (and why you might need it)? And what about that delete operator… And how can JavaScript code be turned from a big mess into neat building blocks?

It’s time to take Amy Hoy‘s and my JavaScript Masterclass Virtual Edition on June 24, 10am to 5pm GMT (London) time (use our time zone tool to compare to your time zone!).

The class is online, so you can take it in in a relaxed atmosphere, like your home in your pajamas, following along as we introduce you to the real JavaScript, the language that sits there quietly hiding (and sometimes loudly complaining) behind your favorite framework.

We’re not discussing any framework specifics, but focus exclusively on the language JavaScript, so whether you use Prototype, jQuery, YUI, dojo, or server-side hotness like node.js, you’ll learn a lot.

You get full all-day interaction with Amy and me, and can ask questions and one-on-one answers, as we will have a chat room, exercises and “homework”. And of course, you get course materials in PDF/HTML/JS form beforehand.

Oh, and on top of all this you’ll also receive a free copy of our JavaScript performance ebook including the DOM Monster, our DOM performance tool, yum!

All this for the super-low, early-bird price of just €275,-*! As we offer just 25 seats, be sure to book fast, as we expect to sell out very quickly!

We also plan to have these online, interactive classes in other time zones, please let us know if you’re interested in that, and whether or not you’d like a full one-day course like this one, or two half-day courses better! Plus, we also plan to do online performance workshops, let us know too if you’re interested.
