jQuery basics?

This jQuery basics seems to hard for me. Is there some video tutorial on Internet I can watch before this?

Hi Ivan!

It would help if you have a solid understanding of JavaScript before you move onto using a framework like jQuery. jQuery builds on top of JavaScript so being able to write in plain JavaScript is, in my opinion, vital.

The only other tip I would give you is to just keep re-watching videos that you don't understand. Sometimes learning new things does take a while but you just have to stick with it.

I agree, definitely take a basic JavaScript course first, and learn how to the manipulate the DOM.

I have learned all courses from Javascript basics and get to jQuery basics. I think I know solid Javascript, but this examples of jQuery basics are little difficult. I will try to rewatch it again, but some link on other sites will be usuful too. Thanks.
