Codecademy is a great free site for learning web development. Very easy to learn and follow lessons. I highly recommend it.

I am not impressed by their site. If that is what they are teaching, they are teaching rubbish. Thin glyph fonts are a no-no. Not meeting WACG standards for legibility is a no-no.

That site is even worse. Only the left half of the page shows with all words, images, and so on cropped at the center of the page. At least the other page was complete, though damned hard to read.

3d, I really like that 1st suggestion you have provided.
I have already started with it.
Actually I am just here:
https://www.codecademy.com/courses/web-beginner-en-bay3D/0/1?curriculum_id=50a3fad8c7a770b5fd0007a1

But looks good so far.
Thanks.

Man do not waste your time to learn JQuery.
Learn JavaScript, which is what JQuery is after all, but just bundled into bunch of classes that are supposed to make life easier, but in fact they add a layer of complexity which is just a time waster :(
Stick with JavaScript. You will know JS for real, your code will be smaller and faster.
In fact the sooner that JQuery dies, the better for the World :)

Wow. For once ThinkDeep is actually correct and has all of his fact straight. Never thought I would ever give him a thumbs up, but I did.

ThinkDeep, I really appreciate that thoughtful answer.
Although, I think the counter argument is that there are lots of JS Libraries in JQ that makes the job of coding front end much cleaner and faster. But your points are well taken and the more I research think valid given HTML5 and JS really render JQ moot. But still if I could learn JQ fast, would like to do so, since many companies list that in their Job Req. Thanks.

Learning jQueery so that it can show on your resume is a very valid reason for learning it. However, I am not sure I would want to work for a company requiring such a bloated mess. Such a company is constraining their IT personnel to fit a paradigm that in the long run does not work well at all. If they are doing that to their IT people, I would assume that they have other short-sighted paradigms that may bankrupt them. So, a job requiring jQueery MAY be a short term position there.

I have enrolled on quite a few programming course on Udemy. https://www.udemy.com/

They change their prices regularly so just wait until everything becomes $10, which is their current "special" price.

Hi GurdMuller.

Apart from their stupid prices changes, they have some really good courses for a broad range of subjects.

I am not affiliated to them in any way. Just a happy customer.

Hope that helps )

I discovered Coursera a while back. You can take all kinds of classes (and tons of computer related ones), for free, and they are very good. Universities from all over the world participate in hosting these classes. Most of them take 68 weeks to complete, and you do it at your own pace and time. Here's the link: https://www.coursera.org/

Hi, this is exactly what I have been looking for, for online self-learning.
Have you taken courses here?
If yes, which course(s) did you take? And how did you like it?
Also, I am not clear about whether these courses are Free or you have to pay for them! Do you know?
Thanks.

Hi,

I have taken one complete course from Tel Aviv University, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was called Understanding Plants. A great asset, very interesting. I've started a couple others, and couldn't finish them because we were in process of moving and I didn't have time. I'm taking another one right now, about beginner's html coding, from Michigan State University. It looks like it's going to be good, too.

You can take them for free, or pay and get college credit for them. I do free!

So one can take all the courses for Free? And choose to only pay, if one ones to get Credit for these course? And as Free student do we get all the same services and products as paid Students?

Yes, you are correct. You can take any course you want for free. The only thing you don't get with the free one is the college credit diploma. Everything else is the same. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of classes offered, and the hosting universities are all over the world. It's really fun! Of course some of the professors are more enjoyable than others, just like any in classroom. The one I had in Tel Aviv was really fun, and he's the leading person, in his field, in the world.

Hum! Very interesting. I shall give them a try by taking one of the courses that I have been looking to take. Such as Object oriented Php. Hopefully it will be a good investment of time and not a waste of time, which is the worst thing. We shall see. But from what you are saying it should be a good investment of time.

Actually a question, which is not clear from their Site.

Can one take the courses any time that one wants to? That is learn by watching Videos online and follow course material online and not stick to any schedule?

Or do we have to take each course at a designated starting time and follow an online class at a designated schedule?

Thanks.

You can work on the course at any time during the duration of the class dates listed. It seems there may be a little leeway at the end of the schedule, but I don't know how much or if it's always available. I often miss working on the class for a day or so, and then I get back at it and do however much I can, any time of day or night! That's the beauty of it! But I need to be done on or about the ending date.

Ok, that does not quite answer my question. But I guess the only way about is just to take a class and see. Although, I hate to waste time.

Y2G, even if you get only HALFWAY through ANY learning course, you have not wasted your time. Every time you enter the class you learn something.

The only way you could waste your time is if you failed to learn anything as you studied.

Well, that is True. But an even a bigger Truth is that it is best to finis the course and get a degree, which requires one taking classes at only reputable and real orgs.

I see you are already quite familiar with JavaScript. JQuery intrinsically is nothing much more than a new JavaScript dialect.

I use it only when I cannot use JavaScript, and usually go to http://www.w3schools.com to see which options are available. Since they list both JS and JQuery solutions, I can make an informed choice.

You may get bored sitting through a JQuery course, as quite a bit of it is probably just about pretty much the same as JavaScript.

BTW, I concur about JQuery being useful for certain things. Some of what is in JQuery is simply not available in standard JavaScript. That makes these extensions valuable. I usually decide on a case by case basis.
