The next Roost is coming up fast — it’s less than three months away — so, on behalf of my fellow instructors, I wanted to take a moment to introduce the team that’ll be teaching in Austin this July!
We are four web developers and educators hailing from Bocoup, and we can’t wait to make the trip to Texas to meet all of you.
We work at Bocoup not only as educators, but also as consultants, which means we spend time teaching while also learning and honing our web development skills on leading-edge client projects. This helps us bring you the best in class when it comes to all things web dev, from workflows to the latest tools and standards. At Roost, we want to share that knowledge with you!
Roost is all about learning the essential skills and tools that every web developer needs to build a modern web application. In this intensive two-day program, you will build an entire production-ready application from scratch, and get involved in break out sessions that will give you the opportunity to do deeper on the topics and skills that interest you the most.
We can’t wait to see you this summer in Austin! In the meantime, we wanted to let you know who we are and what we’re all about.
Mike Pennisi is a contributor to a number of open source projects, including JSHint, Socket.io, and Backbone.LayoutManager.
The only thing James is more passionate about than chickens is education. No, but really, he loves to help empower people with new knowledge, and he can’t wait to meet you at Roost this year. James has been involved in the open source community as a core contributor to Marionette.js, the most popular extension of Backbone.js, for over a year now.
