Advanced JavaScript Bootcamp


Upcoming Advanced JavaScript Bootcamps:
April 3rd, 2017

11 Weeks | Monday, Wednesday, Thursday

More Info →

During this bootcamp, you will learn advanced JavaScript topics while developing an app (along with your classmates) to interface with github to allow you to search for and see different github users and display them on a web interface. By the time this course is done, we will have developed this app together which has consistent style, type-checking, linting, testing, and clean interfaces to a backend API. You will then take what you have learned and apply it to a project of your own devising (i.e. a capstone).

The course is divided into three major modules:
  • React and the build process
  • Testing: Unit and End-to-end
  • Interfacing with REST APIs
