HTML jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Simple Lightbox Perform: Part 4

Shameless Praise for the new JQuery course

I just want to say to you guys, in case anyone is listening, how much I love this new JQuery Basics course. Andrew's presentation is so easy to pick up, and yet, there's enough complexity as the lessons continue to give a sense of JQuery's power. Thank you guys so much for making this course available. I feel like it's going to make a huge difference in how I make websites. Keep up the great work.

I second that! Its got just the right amount of complexity to keep my attention focused, and his process is great. I love that he doesn't just throw functions in there out of his brain but actually pretends to be new at it and look up each function in the API like a newbie would. It really builds confidence as you move through the projects!

Exactly. His going to the API has really helped me as well. The JQuery documentation can be difficult to follow at times. Seeing Andrew navigate it, explaining as he goes, has acclimated me to it more. This and Database Foundations are easily the best courses I've done so far.

You're the man Andrew! Favorite teacher of all time. Thanks for everything!!!!

I have to echo everybody above. Love this course and Andrew's style of teaching it! Thanks so much for imparting the knowledge so I can make my websites more powerful and interactive!
