Overview

The popular hands-on training which had an over-capacity audience at DrupalCon North America & DrupalCon Europe!

Empower yourself by learning the ins and outs of JS to enable yourself to dive into a JS framework. Certain things about JS seem strange when you are either new to programming or come from a PHP background: var, let, const, this, ES62015, ES6, asynchronous programming, various shorthand syntaxes, and more. We'll go over these and much more to prepare you for the brave new world of JS.

In addition to learning the "how" of modern JS, we'll also learn about why so many people are integrating JS so heavily in their applications. What can JS do that PHP can't? And do JS frameworks really provide enough benefit that we should invest in decoupling Drupal 8 projects?

This course is for:

  • Beginner developers who are interested in learning the basics of web development
  • PHP Developers who are interested in learning the differences between PHP and JavaScript

Why learn JavaScript?

  • Most modern websites incorporate some JavaScript
  • Many website frontends are built using a JavaScript Framework such as React, VueJS, etc
  • Content Management Systems, such as Drupal, integrate nicely with JavaScript frameworks
  • JavaScript is very much in-demand

A Better Way To Learn

Our Classes

  • "I really liked the support I received when taking the course!"

    I took the course and with the skills I gained, I was able to get placed on a high-profile project "The Cheesecake Factory"! && many other client projects right after. I must say the tools I learned here at Debug Academy are the same tools the teams I work with on client projects use as well which is pretty amazing! I highly recommend this course!!

  • "I think the way learning in this course is laid out is really well done"

    The structure and order of the course made a lot of sense, it was very logical, and paced in an appropriate way. As soon as I got curious about another topic, it came up later in a lesson or in the next lecture. I think the way learning in this course is laid out is really well done, and now I'm going to have a hard time following the structure of other courses if it doesn't feel just as logical. Well done. Thank you.

  • "Being able to also work on a real project was amazing"

    I enjoyed the formal "lecture" and then the code along division of each class. Being able to also work on a real project was amazing and being part of real workflow using Git was especially helpful. Also, having Ashraf available for Zoom calls was quite nice in addition to the Slack chatroom.” Ashraf's a great instructor, he explains things in a way that make it seem more approachable.
