Ext JS Development

The Ext JS Development training course helps developer teams get up to speed on Ext JS, Sencha’s popular JavaScript framework for building enterprise-level web and mobile applications.

Developers with some programming experience should take this course to learn a battle-tested framework (it’s been around since 2007). Ext JS is a one-stop shop for building rich UI web sites and single-page applications that work across all legacy browsers. This framework features built-in two-way data binding, charts, animations, built-in routing, deep linking, bookmark support, and build tools. This course will teach developers to use all these features and give them hands-on experience building rich demo apps in the classroom. This includes using the same component library and codebase to write applications that will work for desktop, tablet, or smartphone devices.
