Angular and Javascript training course boosts Front End Developer Skills

New Dev skills help improve Online engagement

When a leading High Street Retailer (and purveyor of fine foods) recognised that teams of software engineers were writing overcomplicated and non-standard code they recognised the training need for the teams to pull together in a standardised way. The software engineers themselves had considerable but varied experience in building applications for the web, desktop and mobile devices.

Based on input from the product owners and delivery leads JBI put together a programme to roll out training on Angular JS and associated technologies. The knowledge of JavaScript as a pre-requisite was already intermediate to strong and we accepted the training needed to be challenging. We also recognised that SEO compliance was very important.

The training itself was attended by software engineers from various departments (including Dev Ops). Our trainer, a real evangelist for his technology areas, was praised for his “real life experience of the subject” and for “building a website to refer to with really cool examples”. If there is a gap between technology and design then this trainer with “great knowledge and structure” certainly helped to build bridges. We went on to cover Android Application Development for the “mobile team”.

Part of the program was to teach “unit testing”. This was crucial as it allowed them to do “test driven development” to prevent regressions. The result was teams of upskilled software engineers who were more productive and happier. Furthermore, online customer engagement is up !

In addition to our Angular 2 course JBI can provide a range of Front End courses for your Development Teams
