Over the past week, I've been working on a certification course from alison.com. Personally, I had trouble learning from it because of its format and content.
|My notes, from before I got really lost|
- I liked that it had lots of examples of different ways to use jQuery commands. In the future, if I need help understanding when to use a jQuery command, this will be one of the first places I look.
- I liked that the course conveniently provides a good amount of links to other resources, in case you want more specific documentation.
- I disliked that the course frequently went through multiple topics without a single line of explanation, only providing blocks of sample code.
- On a similar note, I disliked that the few exercises that were offered by the course had little to no direction--all they gave you was an end goal and one or two vague hints.
- Finally, and most importantly, I liked that it was free. Free stuff is good!
|It stands for "freedom". God bless America!|
Also over the past week, I've decided on what I'm going to do for my final project. I plan on making a webpage that contains some pictures and shapes that people can interact with and change. I'm looking forward to continuing my studies, and I hope to go above and beyond my current plans for the project.
