Using Whole Team Accelerated Agile Learning Techniques with Harold Shinsato

What you will take home from this class?

A practical and hands on understanding of the fundamental principles and building blocks used in all computer languages.

The ability to write simple programs with the JavaScript language, and how to move towards mastery on your own.

Actual experience with the full set of technologies involved in a real web application by making changes in that application.

Who is this class for?

If you are interested in how to write programs and/or work with teams or organizations that develop software for the internet, this class can get you started on a learning path.

If you are interested in, or enrolled, in the Montana Code School 12 week class, this 2-day will help you decide, or get a jump start on developing the needed mindset and be successful.

What makes this class awesome? This 2-day class will employ the same methods as the Montana Code School's 12 week immersive. Our 12 week immersive is successful because we employ a hands on team learning and project-based approach that minimizes boring lecture time and exploits agile accelerated learning techniques built on the latest brain-based learning science, pair programming, mob programming, and a high degree of student metacognition. You will benefit from the same highly interactive experience in this 2-day class.

Workshop Overview: Connecting to your Computer - What's in it for you?

A quick introduction to fast team learning methods

Fundamental Concepts of Computers & the Internet

Practical JavaScript (Data Structures, Variables, Arrays, Objects, Functions)

JavaScript in Practice (Both the front and the back)

Dissecting a Running Web Application with "transpilation," deployment, and both JavaScript running in the browser and driving the application behind the scenes.

Schedule and Logistic Details: Please plan to arrive between 8:30 and 9am on both Saturday and Sunday. We will have class until about 5pm on Saturday, and will complete by 4pm on Sunday.

Plan for a lunch break of an hour or less, which means bringing your own lunch or a quick food pickup. It is recommended you bring your own laptop with appropriate adapters to connect to VGA or HDMI monitors. Please wear comfortable clothing as we use movement to assist with the rapid learning methods.
