  • Node.js Bootcamp

    by James Carr

    You might have heard a lot about node.js lately, and all for good reason. It makes building scalable event driven applications easy and fun. In this workshop we’ll take a deep dive into develoment with node.js, from understanding ES5 features and syntax to building your own node.js modules to building and deploying your own real time web application. Other topics that will be explored include concurrency, behavior driven development, real time communication with websockets, working with NoSQL databases and much more. No experience with node.js is assumed but at least some familiarity with javascript is helpful.

  • jQuery

    by Nate Schutta

    Sure, Ajax might not be the hardest thing you’ll have to do on your current project, but that doesn’t mean we can’t use a little help here and there. While there are a plethora of excellent choices in the Ajax library space, jQuery is fast becoming one of the most popular. In this talk, we’ll see why. In addition to it’s outstanding support for CSS selectors, dirt simple DOM manipulation, event handling and animations, jQuery also supports a rich ecosystem of plugins that provide an abundance of top notch widgets. Using various examples, this talk will help you understand what jQuery can do so you can see if it’s right for your next project. Once we’ve established a solid understanding of just what jQuery can do out of the box, we’ll delve deeper into the plugin space. jQuery is designed to be extended and while odds are there’s a plugin that meets your needs, sometimes only a homegrown solution fits. Starting with a couple of very simple examples, we’ll work our way up to more full fledged widgets.
