  • Angular: The Angular track not only offers best practices from proven enterprise applications but also covers important topics like the migration from Angular one to Angular 2 or performance optimization.
  • JavaScript/ECMAScript: After establishing new array functionalities as well as the exponentiation operator back in 2016, it’s time to focus on the asynchronous-features of ECMAScript 2017. The JS/ECMAScript track provides deep insights in these features as well as in the core principles of vanilla JavaScript.

  • React: The React track covers the most wanted topics of the React universe, covering basic concepts, unidirectional data flows, immutability, as well as server-side rendering in polymorphic apps, and the usage of Redux.
  • Web Development: You will learn how to choose the right framework for your concerns, and you will gain deep insights in security, testing, performance – server-side as well as regarding your applications –, hardened DevOps Toolchains, and even SEO.
