Workshop: Modern Web Applications with Aurelia

Aurelia is a next generation JavaScript client framework for mobile, desktop and web. It’s the most standards-compliant, highly performing and simplest technology of its kind today. In this workshop, you'll have an opportunity to learn directly from Aurelia's Community Lead and Certified Aurelia Trainer, Ashley Grant. He’ll teach you how to create modern web applications using an MVVM approach with Aurelia. You also will learn how to extend HTML with custom elements and attributes, how to handle client-side routing and even cover best practices in project organization and maintenance.

Over the course of the day, we’ll cover the fundamentals of Aurelia development through a combination of both lecture-style learning and interactive, collaborative application building. When you complete this workshop, you won’t only know how to build applications with Aurelia, but you’ll also have a slick application you helped to build as part of the process.
