About this event

Welcome to Women Techmakers Berlin's JavaScript autumn course!

The course will be spread over 8 weekly meetings, we will go from learning the fundamentals to having your very own backend application deployed with Docker.

Here is our Syllabus.

The course will be instructed by a team of developers, headed by Armağan Amcalar, Head of Software Engineering at unu GmbH, and will be hosted at the King offices, in Hackesher Markt on Thursdays.

Course description:

This is a course designed for introducing JavaScript and Node.js as a platform for backend applications. It assumes that you know basic concepts of (object oriented) programming but we will start from the beginner level and build up. So, the more programming experience, the better — but total newbies are also welcome, provided that they invest the required amount of time for self-learning.

The course is designed around open-source technologies, so a Unix-like system, Linux or MacOS is preferred. Git and Visual Studio Code will be our main tools, along with Node.js. Windows is not preferred, but if you absolutely have to live on Windows, you should have a working git and Node.js installation, and the rest will work.


- Some previous programming knowledge would be really useful
- It's completely free 
- It's both for beginners and not-so beginners
- Ideally you'll keep working on your project at home
