Yes that’s right, with the help of Tuts+, I am finally learning jQuery, one little baby step at a time.
I went back and looked at my 2012 Resolutions post I wrote last month, and I’m surprised to note that I didn’t write this one down. It’s actually been a resolution of mine for a few years, and one that was always started, and never really got anywhere.
So far, I think it’s great. A lot of it I already knew about (but I’ve only watched 5 days worth), but in a lot of cases, I didn’t understand what was going on – I just knew to do xyz, but not what it was doing.
I’m not expecting to be able to go out and write massive, complicated scripts at the end of the 30 days, but I am looking forward to being able to dig into another persons code and have a better understanding of what is going on.
Do you want to join me? You can either check out where the current (free!) course is up to, or you can search their current directory of tutorials.
Are you interested in learning web development? Do you already know jQuery, and are using this to brush up on the basics? Let me know in the comments below!
