Exploring the Javascript Client

Explore the capabilities of the JavaScript Web Client! Using a sample library that will be available to attendees, we will examine the JavaScript Components and the Web Client architecture.

In this session we will explore the capabilities of the JavaScript Web Client, using a sample library that will be available to attendees. The first half of each session will focus on new components and capabilities
available since the release of Studio 8. The second half of each session will involve group problem-solving and exploration. Attendees will be encouraged to bring their problems and questions, and the group
will work together to provide solutions.
