360° ES training

Some of the sessions for this course can be 100% remote

The 360° ES training is the only course out there covering 100% of JavaScript’s latest generation features. It was designed to address the trainees that now and then came to us saying something like “I love the first day of your Node.js / Modern Web Apps courses, and your conference talks, but what I’m really yearning for is in-depth mastery of the latest features in the language, however niche or obscure”.

Delicious Insights enjoys a solid reputation of expertise on ECMAScript (JavaScript), and we love working with the under-used power of the language, so it only seemed natural to create a training course targeting trainees that want to become their entourage’s absolute go-to person for JS.

Thus was 360° ES born (the inevitable name of which finally triggered the long-deferred rebranding of 360° JS, now Modern Web Apps). In this course, you won’t find a single language aspect uncovered, not a single edge-case left aside... and not only do we cover the language’s latest version, we even explore what’s coming in the few next years! You’re in for three super-dense days: par for the course at DI.

  • 100% up-to-date language coverage
  • Metaprogramming

Intended audience and pre-requisites

The 360° ES training targets first and foremost developers who already have a solid JavaScript experience, and wish to gain in-depth mastery of all language aspects, including the most advanced ones.**

A regular practice of JavaScript in actual operational contexts is mandatory, ideally using ES2015+. On the other hand, there is no need whatsoever to already use the language’s more advanced facets (such as custom iterators, proxies, generators, weak maps, etc.): this is what this training is for!

Unless otherwise specified, predefined-dates, multi-client sessions are held in French, so attendees should be reasonably fluent. You are naturally welcome to book custom dates for your company using the link above.

Deliverables

When the training starts, trainees receive all the related slides and supporting material in a web-based format, so they can easily follow along.

Once the training is done, they also get an extremely content-rich debrief e-mail, a reference archive with all finalized codebases (fully annotated and tested), all related slides and various complementary resources.

Logistics

  • Sessions run 7hr a day, or 4hr12 a half-day, adding up to 14hr, 21hr or 28hr.
  • Full days run from 9:30 to 12:30 and 14:00 to 18:00, half-days run from 13:48 to 18:00.
