In this two-day workshop, we’ll navigate through the challenges faced when trying to create fast and maintainable Web applications. Our hands-on approach mixes lecture from experienced Dojo committers, a library of reference material, live code examples, and 13 in-class activities to apply what you learn as we go.
By the end of this workshop, you will know how and when to apply certain architectural patterns, how to optimize for performance without sacrificing maintainability, and how to perform automated unit and functional testing with Intern. You will also learn advanced debugging strategies that will help you improve your daily productivity
We’ll discuss the following Dojo topics in two intense days of learning:
Developers who already know how to use Dojo but want to acquire advanced strategies and best practices to improve the overall performance and architecture of Dojo-based applications. Developers who have used earlier versions of Dojo and Dijit and want to learn the latest best practices will also find this workshop beneficial.
Our instructors aren’t simply professional speakers, they’re also real Dojo developers that can answer tough questions and provide you with in-depth knowledge that only comes from experience writing actual applications.
Live code throughout each section provides insight into what actually happens when APIs are used, and activities at the end of each topic solidify your knowledge by letting you go hands-on with code.
When you attend a SitePen workshop, you’ll be able to ask questions directly to the instructor or get help through our online chat during the training.
After taking one of our workshops, we want to make sure you’re set up to succeed. That’s why you get to keep a copy of the slides, code samples, and activities from your training as reference for when you begin applying your new knowledge to real projects.
Before taking this workshop, we recommend that all attendees have either taken our Dojo 101: Fundamentals workshop or our previous jUMP into Dojo workshop. If you have not, you should instead feel comfortable with all the materials listed in the Dojo 101: Fundamentals agenda through your experience working with Dojo.
We have a talented group of Dojo committers that teach our workshops. The actual instructor is determined based on our schedule of public and private workshops. Think of our planning process as something like air traffic control for a relatively small airport.
We confirm the venue, and the workshop itself, 30 days in advance. We will send this information to all registered attendees. We are open to suggestions, requests to host a public workshop at your location, etc. Sadly, if we do not have enough registered attendees 30 days in advance, we may cancel a workshop. In this case, you may either apply your payment to another workshop location, or receive a full refund.
