Front-End Web Development: Using Angular 2, React and Backbone.js LiveLessons - Coding Dojo

Video Description

Front-End Web Development with Angular 2, React, and Backbone.js LiveLessons div>

4+ Hours of Video Instruction div>

A practical, hands-on introduction to using three leading JavaScript frameworks -- Angular 2, React, and Backbone.js -- for modern, front-end web development.

Description

The course begins with coverage of JavaScript ES6/ ES2015, establishing an initial base. This base will expand to touch on some of the new pieces of ES6, and then takes a brief turn to generate a Node.js server. From there the video course moves on to detail how jQuery works to communicate with a server, and manipulate the DOM with those new data. div>

This subsequently leads us to using Backbone to gather data from a server, followed by React rendering of DOM elements. Culminating with Angular 2's strategy to integrate both server communication as well as dynamic rendering of content.

The goal of this course is to understand the strengths and weakness of each of these libraries, and how to integrate them into your projects to maximize end user experience and minimize problematic code.

The course will use example code projects and discussion to emphasize the strengths and weaknesses of these libraries and provide context for choosing to use any of these, or even other libraries that aren’t covered here, or have yet to be developed when developing a project.
