If there's something that can get us through the times of coronavirus crisis, it's knowledge. Now's the right time to stock up on it.

There might not be a chance to meet JavaScript experts in person for some time but that doesn't mean you can't get a deeper knowledge of JS and its libraries at remote workshops. But you might be wondering – are they worth it? What makes them useful or unique?

On June 11-23, JSNation Live will be bringing multiple sessions for both JS newbies and hardcore fans this year, and if you join our multi-day JavaScript bootcamp, you'll skill up with the help of the best consultants there are.

We guarantee that you'll be getting a modern training course. Our instructors are 100% ready for remote collaboration, and most of them have previous experience with holding remote sessions. On top of that, we only organize small-sized groups for maximum attention to individual needs, and the sessions focus on practical exercises, so you'll learn by doing. You'll also get extra homework that will be be reviewed by instructors after the course.

We believe that remote can even bring more value than an in-person event – by allowing you to engage with our trainers from the comfort of your home or office. Our team is always on hand to answer your questions, should you have any.
