Experience Level: Written a few AngularJS web apps that are currently in production. Want to learn: I don't exactly know yet. The callbacks and promises generally throw my brain in a loop.
I'm the webmaster and IT director at a non-profit... I maintain a website built by third party that uses Angular.js and I've struggled to understand the relationship between the CMS and Angular. I'd like to be able to learn enough about JS to write functions from scratch instead of just bug hunting... and eventually (maybe) try out something like Node
Advantages of JS over jQuery?
very dependent on jquery would like to learn more js dom manipulation techniques
what are your thoughts on this: learn.modern-developer.com
I'm a starter in JS but very looking forward to learn more!
Experience Level: Basic JS and jQuery. Want to Learn: Native JS
your q's xp: years of markup and design, little programming till a couple months ago wantToLearn: practical vanilla JS and DOM interaction, also underpinnings of frameworks
@owendismuke That’s a great topic! Async execution, why we have the promise pattern, etc is something we can definitely put on the schedule
This is awesome. I'm a beginner. I'm happy you guys are doing this. Prototypes usually confuse me. I'm looking forward to that lecture.
Thank you guys for doing this! I am going to be in a web development bootcamp this fall and want to learn as much as possible beforehand :)
I get the basics but don't get the concepts... so yeah I need the CS stuff. thanks.
@alexisabril@owendismuke - I really want to learn more about promises as well. I get it, but I don't really get it.
@sonnyboothwebdesign Be sure to attend the jquery specific talks in our series! We actually talk about how jquery manipulates the DOM, subsequently how you can manipulate the DOM yourself using native JS methods
really good at making spaghetti code, want to learn how to better keep myself DRY and cement more of this in my head
Hi, I know JS a bit, to manage to write functions and make it work on DOM. I don't know much about promises, closures...
@gebidesign We actually discuss quite a few topics in terms of how memory is handled, even a state machine example showing == vs ===
Alexis Villegas Torres
Do you have plans to talk about node.js?
Question: Which ECMAScript are you going to teach us?
Mauricio Sanchez Duque
Is it possible to get a copy of the slides you use for your lectures?
I know a little of Python, do you think that can help me understanding JS?
Are we going to create Apps? calling different APIs.. etc?
Experience Level: Really Basic JS and even more Basic JQuery, need to get better in ethier or both :smile:
I've been working with js for some time but I want to improve it. Thanks for the training and I'm looking forward the next ones.
@ManuH of course! Be sure to attend the first few weeks of these free sessions as we’re starting from the ground up in the language
@alexisabril great!! I'm really looking forward to it! thank you
Thank you Alexis and Justin! This course will be AMAZING I can bet that!
@Zurc I concur :)
@Alexisvt Not specifically NodeJS, however how JS functions as a language in terms of theory will be the same. We won’t specifically be touching Node APIs in this series though
Alexis Villegas Torres
@alexisabril Thanks! :)
@Zurc Typically our talks are ES5, however we do touch a few notes on ES6 capabilities when applicable.
Justin has caught up to my typing ;)
Are we going to build Apps?
Are you going to cover JS MVC frameworks in this course?
hehe, now I know my name wouldn't work for freelance in the US :) looking forward for future lessons, so far I'm glad it's not going to be yet another js for dummies type of course.
