Business as usual for Norfolk Developers in March 2016

I hope you’re all recovering from NorDevCon and that you enjoyed the conference. Despite a packed conference, it’s Norfolk Developers as usual in March with our regular evening event on the 16th, a hands on JavaScript full day workshop also on the 16th and the fourth NorDev breakfast on the 23rd. Details below.

JavaScript Starter Kit - Beginners Full Day Workshop

When: Wednesday, March 16, 2016, 9:00am to 4:45pm

Where: The King's Centre, King Street, Norwich, NR1 1PH

Price: £55.00


Level: beginner
Prerequisites: Laptop with wifi, modern browser, text editor

This day-long workshop aims to cover enough ground to give you a broad base from which to start your quest. We'll use plenty of practical exercises to  explore the language. We'll cover some of the tricky parts which often mystify people - especially handling asynchronous code, which is one of the language's great strengths. We'll spend most of our time in the browser, but we'll also play around with node.js, JavaScript's foremost server-side environment. There'll be time to survey some of the different tools and frameworks which are popular with JavaScripters at the moment. As well as all this we'll explore JavaScript's history, its culture and community, and the factors behind its explosive growth. Perhaps most importantly we'll introduce a set of resources which'll help you continue your learning independently.

Aspirations of the current and future generations of school students in rural areas is at an alarming low. Norfolk is no exception to this phenomena. The presentations objective is to outline these challenges and how we all, jointly, can strategically change the East of England region's Employment, Skills, Education and Aspirations landscape by creating a world renowned Centre for Knowledge Engineering i.e. AI and Deep Learning, Data Analytics, Bio-Informatics and Cyber Security. The East of England has now 3 world leading regional research hubs creating major breakthroughs in search engine technologies, Bio Med and food research but still not seen as a ‘powerhouse’. The objective is for the East of England to become the UK’s powerhouse of the Knowledge Engineering sector.
