What are the best places to go to learn js/jquery on the web? I want to learn it and understand it fully but also be able to use my learning to write practical code (Being able to know how to make an animation on the fly or manipulate html elements.). Can you guys list maybe your top 3 resources?
Thanks!November 28, 2012 at 11:52 am #115805Paulie_DMemberNovember 28, 2012 at 11:53 am #115806Paulie_DMember
I think Chris needs to do a poll on this and then do a blog post based on the results.
Save the same question coming up every few days.November 28, 2012 at 11:59 am #115811JohnMotylJrParticipant
@matt_sanford : Like most other resources out there, @jkinney768 prettymuch spoke for me. If you are like me and would rather learn something more hands-on or interactively then Code Academy is the way to go.
Dont be like this:
@Paulie_D : Yeah, i have seen the same question over and over. For some reason, instead of linking to previous posts i find myself saying the same thing over and over.. Now i am adding images :)November 28, 2012 at 12:04 pm #115813Chris CoyierKeymaster
I happen to know Treehouse (full disclose: sponsors this site) has a complete course on jQuery that’s pretty new.
NetTuts has a big jQuery course as well: http://net.tutsplus.com/articles/news/the-largest-jquery-class-in-the-world/
You can search around this site for jQuery stuff. There is a ton of it.
I like the book Learning jQuery quite a bit.
Good luck!November 28, 2012 at 12:19 pm #115819matt_sanfordParticipantNovember 28, 2012 at 4:58 pm #115850mauferruscaMember

Just to let you know that the jQuery track at Codecademy HAS been revised and is quite awesome.
