Javascript for PHP Developers

60 minute beginner seminar

Description/Proposal

Tasked with a new project that uses Javascript? Heard about this sweet async magic that JS developers get to work with and you're feeling left out? Or maybe you just don't follow JS super close and want a refresher on what the latest and greatest is?

In this talk we'll discuss some of the core conceptual differences between PHP and Javascript. Walk through the new standards and syntax available in the JS ecosystem. Along with dabbling in backend Javascript via Node to showcase what's possible with Javascript on the backend.
