JavaScript Survivor

with David Nolen


We could all use some JavaScript survival skills in a pinch. This class will show you how to write clean client side JavaScript using jQuery, Underscore and JavaScript Templates. We’ll emphasize good functional style to manage code complexity. We’ll also cover how to use browser based developer tools effectively and demonstrate useful approaches for cross browser testing (shakes fist at Internet Explorer). Expect to leave the class with adequate tools to write JavaScript fearlessly when backed into a corner.


You should be familiar with at least one other programming language and have passing familiarity with JavaScript.
