A New Perspective on JavaScript

May
26
Thursday, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Over the last few years, JavaScript has introduced a slew of new features—fat-arrow functions, maps and sets. But what! What's a WeakMap? And there's a WeakSet? And what exactly does Proxy do? Are these features more the result of feature envy than of any pragmatic value?

In this fast-paced live coding session, Raju Gandhi will demonstrate how you can use these features in combination to create a reactivity system very similar to ones used by modern view libraries like Vue.js. Of course, if you are interested in Vue.js, or already use it, you have even more reason to see how Vue performs all its magic. Win win!

NOTE: We've done a couple trainings on Vue.js. If you'd like to watch, you can access on-demand via these links: https://www.apexsystems.com/event/toolbox-talk/introduction-vue-vuejs-john-papa-learntocode & https://www.apexsystems.com/event/toolbox-talk/testing-vuejs
