When: No date is set for the next class yet
Who: Amy Hoy, Thomas Fuchs... and you
This course is 100% framework agnostic! You will learn boatloads, whether you use Prototype, jQuery, Mootools, node.js, or just your own naked cleverness.
Do you need this course?
- eat prototypes ('little p') for breakfast?
- use closures and anonymous functionsbut only in a memory-safe way?
- secure internal code from API users, when necessary? (without obfuscation?)
- curry functions, not just wursts?
- practice safe namespacing?
- architect your large projects like a pro?
- manage your code with an iron fist?
- build your deployment process with tools other than FTP?
- automatically and hands-free unit-test your code on every commit?
- know how to really optimize code delivery?
What You'll Learn
All of the above, of course. Plus...
Laugh along as you learn how to wield sharp-edged, higher-order language features like a pro.
Study the enemythe browserin detail, so you know best how to conquer it.
Ensure accuracy, no matter the changes in terrain, with unit testing.
Master the production techniques of the, er, masters: code architecture, code management, unit testing, and deployment tools.
What You'll Take Home with You
You don't just get the course, you get goodies:
- Total Documentation, Baby: ready-to-print PDFs of all slides, perfect for taking notes during class (and reviewing, later on!)
- Transcript of the chat room with tons of demo code, hints and questions answered
- Rewatch as often as you like: you'll get a special URL to rewatch the class later!
Not to mention a learning hangover. One of the good kinds.
Here's what past participants say!

- “When you want to be a ninja, you learn by studying with ninjas.”
