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


10:00am - 11:00am CDT
"React Hooks 201", Kyle Hill
It might have taken a little while, but: have you mastered the use of useState, and maybe even (mostly) understand what useEffect is doing at this point? Cool. Let's level up our React Hooks skills further by diving into some of the other tools in our box. We'll leverage useContext and useReducer to create an easy to implement interaction and data flow that scales along with your application and your team.

11:30am - 12:30pm CDT
"Getting Started with Eleventy", Kyle Mitofsky
Eleventy is a JavaScript based Static Site Generator (SSG) that's designed around performance, accessibility, and simplicity. Take your first steps to build out front end designs, websites, and content with this walk through that'll get you set up on your first eleventy site. Learn some of the basics with some patterns and best practices as well.

1:00pm - 2:00pm CDT
"TypeScript for Beginners", Dacey Nolan
During this introduction to TypeScript, we will cover what TypeScript is, what benefits it provides, and how you can use it in your projects. Code with me or just follow along as we dive into each of the types and learn how to use them.

2:30pm - 3:30pm CDT
"Automating GraphQL Client Code Generation", Kevin Wolf
In this talk, we will learn how to streamline Front End Development by generating type-safe GraphQL Operations for Apollo Client.

4:00pm - 5:00pm CDT
"Building GraphQL Resolvers", Josh Oppenheim
Have you ever wanted to know how graphql resolvers work or why we use them? In this training we will talk about the philosophy behind resolvers and how they fit in the greater GraphQL flow. We will take a look at how the graphql-js library implements them and we will write some of our own. We will discuss some possible requests from consumers and write resolvers to accommodate the needs presented.
