Day 15 jQuery
Day 15 is in the books and week 4 is underway. This is going to be a big week. We are covering a lot of material. Next week we start our Q1 projects which seems crazy. I can’t believe we’re almost done with the first quarter of the program.
After doing a few exercises using the built in DOM methods I couldn’t help but think about how much easier they would have been if I’d had jQuery at my disposal. However, I can definitely see the value in knowing how to use the built in resources. They are more than sufficient in a lot of cases and are pretty straightforward to use. I think I’m going to go back through some of the exercises and do them with both jQuery and built in methods and weigh the pros and cons to each. I’m learning that doing exercises more than once and trying out different ways to solve problems is extremely useful in solidifying my learning. I don’t always have time to do as much as I would like to, but I try to do as much repetition as possible when I have the time.
15 down 85 to go!
