My name is Jesse, I'm 29 and married to a sweet little Puerto Rican woman.
I was born in Michigan, but I've been living in Central Florida the past 9 years.
I've been programming since I was 12. Beginning with QBasic in school, IRC Scripting at home, and HTML in Netscape Navigator on weekends. In those days I had to "View Source" to figure out how to do anything! I wrote my first website at this age using the GeoCities free websites. I then moved to AngelFire for a while. Remember those days?
When I hit 20, I spent several years freelancing with the skills I picked up from terribly long nights of studying. Freelancing was difficult for me because being a salesman wasn't in my blood, but I enjoyed the coding parts! I primarily used Linux, PHP, MySQL, and CSS. Then jQuery a bit later.
These days I live in the corporate world. I work with a small team of people and I enjoy it. I'm doing all sort of things from building solid back-ends, REST API's, HTML5/JS games, Python Django, and sometimes a bit of monkey work.
I enjoy explaining programming not because I like to talk, but because I find it rewarding to help people along their way. In fact, I found it so rewarding that I created a Youtube channel with hundreds of videos covering programming topics.
I hope you can benefit from my years of learning, I try to present it in a simpler way so you don't wrestle with all the questions I had!
Take your courses with you and learn anytime, anywhere.
Learn and practice real-world skills and achieve your goals.
Let's go on a short journey and learn a treasure!
You need a text editor like Sublime Text or Notepad++ to type your code.
Create a project folder to start our learning.
Looping data is essential to every language.
Traversal is moving throughout the tree. Just picture your $(selector) is a character, and now you have to navigate up a tree. That's exactly what traversing means!
jQuery comes with some basic effects and animations. These is a demonstration of using them.
Here's how you go about doing using AJAX! A webserver is required to do real AJAX calls -- this will teach you anyways!
Underscore is a nice toolbelt, here's how to get it loaded in our project.
Get the gist of how collections work, its extremely easy!
Make your life easier with these array utilities.
Templates are very useful! See how easy they are to use.
This is a summary of what other frameworks are out there with a few thoughts on them.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course and found the content really stuck in my head. I would say though that it isn't for complete beginners as I think it will need some understanding of programming general principles before attempting it. Over though an excellent course and very enjoyable. Cheers Jesse
Instructor starts out decently explaining things. By the end of section 2 you're Googling everything because the methods/elements/bologna are used without thorough explanation as to what they do and why we want to use them. The instructor ends lecture 7 by saying it's 'tricky' and doesn't bother explaining. (watch lecture 7, from about 5:40 to the end of the video and you'll see what I mean) As for the positive aspects, I did learn many things. If things were explained more thoroughly it would EASILY be a 5 star course.
Un curso básico que tiene varias cosas avanzadas, jquery, json, underscore, genial el curso
Excellent introduction for beginners!
