Dojo Essentials 3-Pack!

Twelve day workshop - Online

About these workshops

To ring in 2017, we’re offering you THREE Dojo workshops over THREE weeks at a THIRD of the regular price!

This is your chance to learn the basics of how to use the Dojo Toolkit and its core APIs to effectively build and enhance web applications with Dojo. But that’s not all! You’ll also get to explore the code with an expert SitePen engineer and find out what it feels like to create rich user interfaces across desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.

But wait! There’s more! With the first two workshops under your belt, you’ll be ready to navigate the challenges faced when trying to create fast and maintainable web applications — all from the comfort of your own environment!

Our hands-on approach mixes lecture from experienced Dojo committers, a library of reference material, live code examples, and activities to apply what you learn as we go. Don’t delay, sign up and kick off 2017 with a bang!

An amazing way to learn JavaScript

Learn from committers

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.

Code as you learn

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.

Ask your questions

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.

Keep the resource kit

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.

Who's the instructor?

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.
