Cisco awards and JavaScript

I wanted to start the blog out this week by congratulating Sunset Learning on winning the 2013 Cisco Partner of the Year Award.  We’ve been partnering with Sunset for the last couple years in order to bring a vast variety of Cisco Authorized offerings to the Columbus area.  The format we use is High Definition Instructor Led Training or HD-ILT™ from SLI is the world’s first distance training system utilizing state-of-the-art, life-size high definition video & audio combined with patented remote lab access. This unique combination provides students with the same experience as if they were actually in the classroom with the instructor. Instructors are able to see and hear students in the HD-ILT™ real-time, no different than the “live” students sitting in their classroom.  Remote access to student PCs at the HD-ILT™ facility, allow the instructor to aid and assist students with lab exercises.  We look forward to continuing this partnership to ensure the best Authorized Cisco training around at flexible times to make sure you get the certifications you need.

Now let’s move on to programming language.  JavaScript has recently moved into the top ten most searched programming languages, and many believe it will reach the top five very soon.  JavaScript is a prototype-based scripting language that is dynamic, weakly typed, and has first-class functions. Its syntax was influenced by the language C. JavaScript copies many names and naming conventions from Java, but the two languages are otherwise unrelated and have very different semantics.  JavaScript’s use in applications outside of web pages—for example, in PDF documents, site-specific browsers, and desktop widgets—is also significant. Newer and faster JavaScript VMs and frameworks built upon them have also increased the popularity of JavaScript for server-side web applications.

Let’s take a look at a couple of our most popular JavaScript classes.

Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 

This course provides an introduction to HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. This course helps students gain basic HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript programming skills. This course is an entry point into both the Web application and Windows Store apps training paths. The course focuses on using HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript to implement programming logic, define and use variables, perform looping and branching, develop user interfaces, capture and validate user input, store data, and create well-structured applications.

Advanced Windows Store App Development Using HTML5 and JavaScript

In this course the students will learn the more advanced programming skills and techniques that they can use to optimize their Windows Store app and differentiate their app from other apps in the Windows Store. These advanced skills and techniques include a combination of both design and development skills. The students will also learn about supporting the apps that they have published to the Windows Store.
