    I sure would like to attend the Javascript training in Los Angeles.

    – jeffa

    Jeff, I wasn't sure if your comment was supposed to be funny, but I was laughing my butt off.

    It says that the event is for women. Then you added an 'a' at the end of your name on the signature 'jeffa'. Which in many romance languages turns a masculine name into a female name.

    Then I realized that the 'a' is just the initial for your last name

    If a spot becomes available, please let me know. I just started learning javascript and would love to attend. Are there other such events in LA, OC or Inland Empire?

  4. Robbie Jene says:

    I sure would love to attend.  Is there any opportunity for this to be offered for Florida participants.  

  5. Kristina says:

    I like to join it. I am not currently in US. Do you have any idea to attend it virtually online.
