Modern Web Applications with Aurelia

Web JavaScript

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 course you'll have an opportunity to learn directly from Aurelia's architect and project lead, Rob Eisenberg. 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, maintenance and deployment.

Over the course of two days, we'll cover every major topic in Aurelia development through a combination of both lecture-style learning and interactive, collaborative application building. When you complete these two days, 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.
