Port80 2013 – Workshops

Posted on: March 5th, 2013 by joel

The Port80 cherub is pleased to announce that a limited number of workshops will be running on the day before the main Port 80 2013 conference coming up this May (workshops will be on the 9th, the main event is on the 10th).

The workshops will be at the lovely City Campus, University of Wales (Newport) location (the same venue as the main Port80 event). Now, sadly, the Uni is short on space as it’s their busy time then so we’re not able to run the amount of workshops the cherub would like (never mind though, a bigger training event is being mulled for September).

What’s on offer?

Currently we’ve got three workshops running:

Practical Website Speed Workshop (Andy Davies)

9th May, afternoon session (13:30-17:00)

Here, web performance brainiac (and Port80 speaker) Andy Davies will be giving a practical, half day session on why performance matters, the tools you can use to analyse, and techniques and tips to get things zipping along. It’s hands on & practical so you’d better bring your laptop.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite at standard £79 (+VAT) and student £49 (+VAT)

 

Beginners Javascript Workshop –  (Jack Franklin)

9th May, morning session (09:00-12:30)

This morning & afternoon Javascript sessions are run by Port80 2013 speaker, JavaScript developer and blogger Jack Franklin.

This workshop is for those who have done HTML and CSS but have not dived into JavaScript. We’ll look at all the basic parts that form the JavaScript language: variables, conditionals, loops, functions, and so on. We’ll look at the DOM and how to write scripts that run in the browser that can manipulate the page. We’ll then round off with a quick look at jQuery too.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite at standard £79 (+VAT) and student £49 (+VAT)

 

Advanced Javascript Workshop –  (Jack Franklin)

9th May, afternoon session (13:30-17:00)

Done the basics of JavaScript and lots of jQuery but still not comfortable with JavaScript as a whole? This workshop’s for you. We’ll look into the more complex and often overwhelming and misunderstood parts of the language, such as constructors, prototypes and a lot more. Learn how to write robust code, abstract away from cross-browser inconsistencies and look at some newer JavaScript features that have only been introduced recently.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite at standard £79 (+VAT) and student £49 (+VAT)

 

Please shout out if you have any questions.

You’re lovingly
