Following an exciting week on CDMG and Twitter local developers have collaborated to secure Kyle Simpson, leading JavaScript expert from the USA to deliver an Advanced JavaScript 2 day workshop.

Local businesses and education providers have collaborated to ensure this brilliant opportunity became a reality.  Companies include Headforwards, Flowmoco, Niddocks,  Tempest Photography, Buzz Interactive, Packet Ship, Sullivan Cuff Software and Falmouth University all securing their places on the workshop. Cornwall College have collaborated to help host the workshop by providing a venue for the group, as well as attend the workshop in July.

The unique self-sustaining events model is being piloted as an idea that could see more leading experts visit the county to share their knowledge and skills through the newly formed SoftwareCornwall, a not-for-profit collaborative network.

Advanced JavaScript 2 day workshop

In this 2-day “Advanced JS” workshop, we will dive deep into the core mechanisms of the language. Rather than a broad overview of acronyms and frameworks that’s shallow, this course is a narrow but highly rigorous and in-depth look at what makes JavaScript work. Topics include:

* types & natives

* coercion

* references vs. values

* nested scope/hoisting

* closure

* encapsulation

* this

* prototypes

* common “OO” patterns

* inheritance vs. behavior delegation

* async callbacks

* generators/coroutines

* promises


bonus options (if time)
* “Node Fundamentals
