Frontend Masters Workshop Series
November 2011 - January 2012 MJG Headquarters Minneapolis, MN
Frontend Masters Workshop Series was six intense days of frontend development training in-person at the MJG Workshop Center in Minnesota. The training was spread across six Fridays. High quality food and massages were provided for the ~30 attendees. Companies local to Minnesotan sent their frontend teams to strengthened coworker relationships and sharpen minds through this educational series.
Each morning training session Marc Grabanski led building a web application UI built on top of HTML5, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile. Then each afternoon a top-expert was flown in to teach workshops on different topics each day including: jQuery, jQuery UI, HTML5/CSS3, Titanium Mobile, building large JS applications and testability.
The videos from the event have been post recorded in full HD, edited and are now going up for sale.
“Great series of sessions offering tremendous value. I've taken a number of 'technical bootcamp' style classes and this one offered the best value of content/cost of all of them. Can't wait for the videos to review the content again.”
“Absolutely loved it! Lots of lessons that I can take back to work and try to teach other team members!”
