Even as unconscionable amounts of snow have bombarded the Bocoup Loft this winter, we've kept ourselves warm by keeping the sun in our hearts - and in our plans. Summer's always more fun with friends, and that's why we're partnering with our colleagues Nicole Sullivan and Alex Sexton to bring you CSSConf US and TXJS this June and July!

We're getting ready to go live with conference websites, ticket sales, and calls for speakers shortly, but we wanted to give you the lowdown on a few key dates and invite you to spend a bit of your summer with us!

We've had more and more requests recently to expand our curriculum in a number of different directions. I'm happy to announce that we're bringing some of these classes to you this summer.

New dates have been added in Boston for all of Bocoup’s much-loved Open Web classes. We'll also teach our three most popular classes at The New York Times Building in June and July: JavaScript Best Practices and Patterns, Writing Testable JavaScript, and Building Web Applications with Backbone.

Hi, I'm Lidza, and I've just completed the Open Web Engineering Fellowship at Bocoup - this post is about my experience learning web application development.


Background

The Open Web Engineering Fellowship at Bocoup was my first experience with front-end web application development. My background is in working with the Linux Kernel, specifically device drivers. While I had taken some Ruby on Rails workshops at Thoughtbot, I hadn't yet applied my new skills, and I had very little experience with JavaScript development overall. And, the little I did know was along the lines of "jQuery can make things slide back and forth and fade in and out on the page."

Roost, Bocoup's first-ever JavaScript Training Conference, was born one year ago this month. Today, we're excited to announce our second Roost Conference, to be held February 10-11, 2014 in San Diego.

We're so excited that our friends Yehuda Katz and Tom Dale from Tilde will be stopping by the Bocoup Loft to deliver Introduction to Ember training April 22-24.

At Bocoup, we support a wide variety of Open Web technologies. We believe in the right tool for the job, so we're actively exploring different MV* libraries and frameworks. That's why we're happy to support Ember.js training in addition to hosting Backbone.js trainings and meetups, and the newly-formed Angular.js meetup for the Boston development community. If you're looking to learn more about Ember.js, we hope to see you there!

The Bocoup Loft is a fun and inspiring place to be. Between the technical debates and conversations amongst Bocoupers, regularly scheduled classes and meetups, and the occasional banana-themed event, 355 Congress St. is a very lively place!

For the past few months, we've been experimenting with bringing that liveliness online via our Bocoup on Air series with Google+. We're inviting you, the open web developers of the world, to share ideas, questions, and discussions with one another in order to (hopefully!) learn something new and get to know more people in the community. So far, we've talked about JavaScript and robots, HTML5 game development, mobile development on the open web, and contributing to Open Source.

Many of us here at Bocoup spend a lot of our time helping others get better at JavaScript and working with open web technologies, from Adam Sontag working with folks to solve their problems in the #jquery IRC channel, to Ben Alman working out the perfect way to explain an IIFE, to Greg Smith guiding people through the ins and outs of CSS layout.

One of the most important ways we accomplish our mission to move the Open Web forward is through helping and training web developers. To this end, we’re working to make open web education as accessible as possible via resources such as jqfundamentals.com, our public classes and workshops, and the Essentials Tours we’re bringing to cities around the country. With accessibility in mind, we set out to develop a training event that delivers a lot of value, but stays within reach of an individual developer.
