One Month jQuery is a series of video lessons and tutorials that show anyone -- even a total beginner -- how to build four real-world projects that you can add to your website. You will learn how to make your website more interactive and engaging using jQuery.
When you sign up, you immediately get access to a member’s area where you can learn jQuery online and take each lesson at your own pace. Through engaging iQuery tutorials, you’ll learn how to interact with the Document Object Model (DOM), use web developer tools, and get started with reading and understanding documentation to help you take the reins of your own projects -- sounds fancy, huh? We promise that it’s not as complicated as it sounds. Each lesson acts as a jQuery tutorial for beginners as we break everything down along the way making it easier than ever to learn jQuery online.
I was on a Graphic Design team when I recognized it wasn’t what I really wanted to do. Almost everyone in Silicon Valley was looking for developers, so I self-taught myself front-end development and then later learned Ruby on Rails. In the course of this, I noticed an elitist attitude around technology, so part of my work has been about breaking down those walls. I love teaching people to have a “developer mindset:” how to ask the right questions that lead to the best answers.
When I was first breaking into the industry, all the advice I received left me knee-deep in imposter syndrome. Navigating the ocean of opinions felt impossible, so I just focused on building more projects. That allowed me to find my own path with programming. And ultimately, to build up enough confidence to approach developer jobs.
As a teacher, I want to dispel misconceptions about programming. It’s not too hard; it’s not boring or uncreative. You don’t have to be good at math. I want to encourage students to pursue something they may have previously thought was unfathomable. This isn’t the course to dive more deeply into theory and advanced projects; this is the perfect intro course to bridge your preconceptions about jQuery with a more integrated beginners knowledge.
I know the importance of building tangible things in the process of learning. I want every student to know: this is a skill you can develop. Because -- look! -- you’re already using it.
I hope you enjoy this course! We’re going to cover some of the best concepts and tools to get started learning jQuery.
See you soon!
