WordCamp Atlanta 2017

Getting Started with JavaScript

Description:

As of January 2017, JavaScript is used by 94.4% of all websites. On average, JavaScript developers earn 20% more than PHP developers. You can create entire websites, single page applications, mobile or even desktop apps using 100% JavaScript. You can’t ignore JavaScript anymore.

At the same time, there are tons of JavaScript frameworks, tools, and even different versions of the language that you can learn. How do you make sense of it all? Where do you start?

You start by attending this special double-session where we will give you an overview of the JavaScript landscape, start with the basics of JavaScript coding, and point you towards some great resources for continuing your journey towards becoming a JavaScript master.

We’ll spend the first hour by giving you a broad overview and helping ease that overwhelming feeling you get when people start throwing around the names of JavaScript things you know nothing about. We’ll also take a look at what the learning process looks like in general and how you can accelerate your learning of new things like JavaScript or that new framework you’ve been wanting to try out.

During the second hour, we’ll take a closer look at JavaScript itself. We’ll start with some sample tasks, things you might normally want to do with JavaScript in WordPress, and show you how to get the job done. You will learn about basics of JavaScript coding, the tools that WordPress provides and some great resources for gaining a deeper understanding of JavaScript.
