Architect as a Service

If you have ever studied a martial art, chances are you are familiar with katas: the practice of individual training exercises. Repeatedly. It may seem pointless to practice the same move again and again, the only way to improve is repetition. We can apply the same concept to learning programming languages.

Working individually or in small groups, attendees will work through a set of problems using JavaScript to solve them. Whether you are new to JavaScript or an old hand, this session will give you an opportunity to hone your craft! Bring a laptop or be prepared to make a friend.
