Five top Javascript Skillscasts from the Skills Matter archives

 

Gary Short: End to End Javascript (login required)

Gary Short, End to end Javascript

From the 2012 Progressive .NET Tutorials in London Gary Short, Technical Evangelist for Developer Express, looks at how Javascript as a language was beginning to infiltrate all three layers of application development – from JQuery in the front end, through NodeJS in the middle tier, to Map/Reduce functions on back end databases like CouchDB.

Gary looks at some of the gotcha’s within the language before going on to build an exemplar, 3-tier application in Javascript. By the end of the session he demonstrates a much better appreciation for the language and the power it has on all application tiers.


In the Brain of Carlos Ble: Behaviour Driven Rias with Javascript

Carlos Ble came along to Skills Matter a year ago for an In The Brain talk looking at a whole range of topics: why JavaScript is getting so popular, Executable Specifications with Cucumber for the RIA, the Passive View Pattern, event oriented programming and how to test-drive it, test driving promises, technical debt on purpose and the role of the “server side”.


Tamas Piros: An Introduction to AngularJS

In this talk organised by the Mean Stack user group, Tamas Piros came along to Skills Matter HQ with a presentation suitable for everyone (experienced and brand-new), with an introduction to AngularJS describing the basics such as data-binding, expressions and directives.


Jonathan Fielding: Building better experiences with Responsive Javascript

From the archives of another Mean Stack meetup, Jonathan Fielding goes beyond media queries showing what CSS can offer and moving into the realms of responsive Javascript.


Damjan Vujnovic: Backbone JS Unit tests

While most of us will agree that unit tests are an important aspect of development, actually implementing them seems to be a different story. Damjan takes you through your first steps with unit testing in Javascript in this mini workshop, hosted by the Backbone.js London user group.
