Event information:

Douglas Crockford dubs JavaScript “The World’s Most Misunderstood Programming Language”. If you heard of, used or implemented a SPA, an AngularJs app or the jQuery or jQueryUI libraries, you are already using JavaScript. We will first start with a Power Point presentation through which  we will cover some of the commonly misunderstood aspects and capabilities of this powerful language. We will also discuss a few developer tips and tricks in debugging our web application using Chrome DevTools.  A hands-on  workshop will follow with examples emphasizing the concepts covered in the talk.
