Upcoming Forward Workshops

On the days before and after the conference, we'll hold in-depth workshops with top instructors.

Tuesday
April 9, 2019
Building Your First React App
w/ Steven Hicks
April 9, 9:30am - 4:30am

In this full-day workshop, you’ll learn how to build a single-page app with React. We’ll discuss the fundamentals of React development, the “React” way of building apps, and suggestions for writing maintainable React code. You’ll get hands-on experience with JSX, React Router, state management, hooks, and testing tools like Jest and react-testing-library. We’ll be creating an app to manage all the adorable kittens in our lives. The React landscape is extensive, and we can’t cover it all - but you’ll leave this workshop feeling confident to build your next app with React. This session includes a healthy balance of instruction and hands-on activities. Experience with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is required. You’ll need Git v2.15.0 or higher, NodeJS v8.9.4 or higher, NPM v5.6.0 or higher, and a text editor of your choosing.

Build Your Own Serverless Applications
w/ David Nugent
Data-Driven Applications Workshop
w/ Rey Riel
April 12, 1:00pm - 4:00pm

For decades now Qlik’s analytics engine has been put through the paces. Totalling petabytes of data and trillions of rows by some of the largest datasets in the world, the big players in all industries have stress tested our engine to the max. But what if you could utilize this engine for any web app? What if it wasn’t just about analytics? Join me as we learn and play around with Qlik Core, the barebones containerized version of an enterprise engine that any developer can easily deploy and use in their own app to drive analytics, power search capability or do almost anything your imagination can think of.
