This three day intensive course will forever change the way you develop the front-end of your web applications. For too long, many web developers have approached front-end as drudgery. No more! We’ll help you build the skills to write front-end code you can love every bit as much as your server-side code.]

AJ: Yo, yo, comin’ at you from the cowboy sphere of Orem, Utah.
CHUCK: We also have Jamison Dance.
JAMISON: I’m coming at you from bathrobe sphere of Orem, Utah. It’s much more comfortable than a cowboy sphere.
CHUCK: We have Joe Eames.
JOE: Comin’ at you from a cluttered office.
CHUCK: And Merrick Christensen.
MERRICK: Hey guys!
CHUCK: So, Merrick is new. Merrick, do you wanna introduce yourself real quick?
JOE: Did you just recently speak at any conferences?
MERRICK: Yeah actually.
I just spoke at CascadiaJS on require.js. And actually, what’s really cool is they just barely put the videos for that up today and I was so stoked at how high quality. So to the CascadiaJS team, you guys did an excellent job.
JOE: Are the videos free?
MERRICK: Oh yeah. All free up on YouTube. And there’s some cool stuff — there’s stuff on like robots — it was an amazing conference. The organizers just did an amazing job.
CHUCK: Sounds like fun. Was that up in the North West somewhere?
MERRICK: Yeah it was actually in Seattle.
MERRICK: Yeah it was beautiful.
JAMISON: I heard that as one of the after party things, they took everybody up to see the James Bond movie?
MERRICK: They did yeah.
