July 26th, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome James Bender with "JavaScript is Not a Dirty Word"

If you’re an ASP.NET Web or Client Side developer, the name “JavaScript” may induce feelings of dread or even terror. It’s weird. It’s not type-safe. It’s kind of flaky. It’s hard to debug. Heck, it’s not even compiled! Besides, I have all these nifty ASP.NET controls that take care of all that for me, right? Thanks to client side libraries like jQuery, Angular and others, JavaScript is experiencing a renaissance. It’s evolved from that weird browser language you used to use because you had to, to a powerful tool for creating web applications with richly featured client-side user interface. But it doesn’t stop there; JavaScript is everywhere from server side code to hybrid mobile application. If you’re a .NET developer who’s avoided JavaScript it’s time to jump back into the pool! This session will explain some of the key difference between JavaScript and C#/VB.NET, explain what the major JavaScript frameworks are what they do, and show you how to leverage some simple JavaScript in your ASP.NETapplication.
