    Javascript is extremely versatile - DOM manipulation, server-side processing, Data transfer, and even database systems can all be accomplished with JS (my thoughts, anyway)

    I missed most of this video, will it be available to watch later?
    Justin Meyer
    @justinbmeyer
    it should be available almost immediately
    Tony Brown
    @anthonybrown
    Thanks Justin
    I'm totally stoked that you are doing this series
    Is this a preview to a course you guys are developing?
    or is this the course that we are watching
    Justin Meyer
    @justinbmeyer
    @alexisabril is going to post a blog article for each article that contains:
    • the video
    • the slides
    • an outline of what was covered
    • a link to the place in this gitter room when the video started

    @anthonybrown Happy to do it. Yes, we are working toward a new course with these.
    Tony Brown
    @anthonybrown
    So is this gitter room going to be the place we meet all the time?
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    Where will @alexisabril post all of the goodies? (I apologize if this question was already answered) :)
    Justin Meyer
    @justinbmeyer
    yeah

    I enjoyed today's training. In future trainings I'd like more discussion about the DOM how it works with JS and internet in general. I am a newbie developer and I'm learning to code in JS and all its libraries. These trainings will help me understand my JS/JQuery etc codes. Also, I would like a bit more understanding of computer programming (I hold liberal art degrees and I am transition into a tech field) . Thanks for the (free) course!

    cool, thanks!

    Thanks @alexisabril
    I need a project or something to get me motivated
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    @Sonju I am doing the same (transitioning out of a music career into the tech field!) :)

    @lyndseybrowning
    For me, I find learning the concepts OK. It's finding real life situations in which to use them that is the challenge
    Tony Brown
    @anthonybrown
    @lyndseybrowning me too
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    @lyndseybrowning Yes! Same here!
    Lyndsey Browning
    @lyndseybrowning
    @anthonybrown Definitely think of a project. I did this; I wrote my own little word game in vanilla JS so that I could become more accustomed to not using jQuery and also understanding prototype. It helped a lot
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    My friends call that "constipation of the brain". Having all of the knowledge up there, but not being able to use it in "real life". :)

    @/all Thanks everyone for joining! I'm going to get back to work. If you have anything for me specifically, just @justinbmeyer so I see it. Thanks again :-)

    @anthonybrown
    Hey thanks again Bitovi
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    Thanks!

    @lyndseybrowning
    By not using jQuery, I mean not relying on it so much, where it may not be needed :)
    Sonju
    @Sonju
    @Madelene Good luck to you! A know how to read sheet music from my days as viola player in middle school. Do you find coding like reading music?

    Hi
    Madelene Campos
    @Madelene
    @Sonju THANKS. Good luck to you, too! I think we're "doing the right thing". There are so many opportunities out there in the tech field :) Coding is similar to music! The skills are transferrable: Patterns, practice, discipline, etc. Thanks for the coding projects idea, btw :)

    Justin, thank you a lot for your lesson. If possible consider the following part of Javascript for your next lessons: callbacks + promises, prototypes, recursion, module pattern, higher order functions (Lambdas). Have a good day!
    Justin Meyer
    @justinbmeyer
    @OlgaMaraeva We will get to that, but in about 2-3 lessons. You can check the schedule and see when we talk about closures / prototypes. We will talk all about dependency management eventually.

    Thanks for making this training available. I liked the conceptual introduction rather than the usual boring language details that are easy to lookup. One thing that confuses me with JS is the exploding tools/frameworks/libraries in the ecosystem. If you at least mention few of these and what they are and how they relate/differ from others; it would be great help. Thanks again.
    OlgaMaraeva
    @OlgaMaraeva
    @justinbmeyer Thank you for answer! I will wait for your lessons. Its really interesting and easy to understand.

    @abaitam Looking at the schedule here: http://blog.bitovi.com/free-weekly-online-javascript-training/ it looks like that topic is scheduled to be covered on September 2nd. That’s a few weeks out. :) Probably because there’s plenty of directly JS-related stuff to cover before diving into the frameworks that are built on top of it.

    Welcome everyone! We’ll get started shortly, just a few technical difficulties :)
