Croydon, I think by now it is better to just go with Vanilla JavaScript and forgo learning and adding the extra layer of abstraction of JQuery. I mean at one point I thought learning JQ was good, but by now I think Vanilla JavaScript is better faster.

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 )
