AJAX retiring, so should I start with the course?

I know the topic of Ajax retiring has been discussed a few times in the community forum so forgive me if this question already has been answered.

I would like some advice on what to do.

I am currently busy with the Full Stack JavaScript track and is about to start with Ajax course. The Ajax course is retiring in 7 days from now, which gives me plenty of time to complete it, but will it be worth it to complete the course?

If the course is retiring for good, then it will be nice to have some knowledge on Ajax and how it works, but if a new and more updated course will be released then I'll have to redo everything again, then I might as well just wait for the new course to be released and then just start with that.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

If you're interested in the jQuery-based AJAX instruction, I think it might be prudent to take the course and/or downloaded the videos before it is retired. I understand the new one has a focus on "Fetch" instead of jQuery.

I definitely think to take the Ajax course since it is not listed in the content roadmap. Thanks for your advice Steven!

And happy coding!

I think the replacement came out recently here. Looks like it's just the first two stages of the old course.

Golly, I missed that release entirely! Normally new courses are announced with "Featured" messages in the forum, but this one apparently was not.
