JavaScript Marathon is a full day of free, online courses covering various tech topics. This month's marathon features trainings on React, Angular, Typescript, WebAssembly, and more. Come learn about some of the leading web development technologies, and concepts!


10:00am - 11:00am CDT
"React Native in 60 Minutes - Introduction to Creating Your First Hybrid Native Application" with Rob Ocel
So, you know React, and you want to build a mobile application - how do you get started? In this training, we'll discuss the architecture of React Native and how it differs from competing approaches such as Progressive Web Applications, Ionic Capacitor, and Apache Cordova. Then, we'll make a basic application from scratch that uses data from remote APIs and device sensors, and we'll show how to test and debug the application on your device and in simulators.

11:30am - 12:30pm CDT
"Using Angular Libraries in an Nx Monorepo" with Pato Vargas
Learn how to use Angular libraries and share code between multiple enterprise applications in your current or your future monorepo project using Nx by the Nrwl team.

1:00pm - 2:00pm CDT
"JavaScript Animations with GreenSock" with Christina Gorton
Have you ever been to a website and wondered "Whoa, how did they do that?" In this session you will learn how to get started creating fun, interesting, and complex animations that delight users with the GreenSock animation library.

2:30pm - 3:30pm CDT
"Type-Safe Databases with Prisma" with Ryan Chenkie
TypeScript is seeing huge adoption in all kinds of settings, from enterprises to open source projects to indie side projects. The promise of type safety via TypeScript is compelling: it allows you to catch a whole class of bugs before you even deploy your code. While there's a lot of focus on making your front-end and backend code type-safe, not as much focus is put on applying the same to your database access. That's where Prisma comes in. Prisma is a database toolkit that allows you to build type-safe databases with ease. It gives you a fully typed database client which means you get type hints, autocompletion, and you are prevented from accessing your database in an invalid way. In this session, we'll build a TypeScript node API that uses Prisma for database access. We'll see how Prisma can be used to give you confidence in how you access your data and how you can be more productive by using features such as the Prisma Schema Language, migrations, and more.

4:00pm - 5:00pm CDT
"Javascript-free Websites with .NET Blazor WebAssembly" with Heather Downing
Curious about the development experience of building front-end with C#? Blazor WebAssembly makes it possible to replace all of your Javascript completely - even in the front end! Join us as we build a secure SPA in .NET and discover the tricks of debugging and the trade-offs of the server-side version of Blazor.
