The New Ajax Course

I have completed all but the last badge on the Ajax course and I have to say, it's pretty awesome. I learned a lot from it and I really enjoyed Dave as the instructor! (Randy is still my favorite though ;))

I look forward to all of the courses TeamTreeHouse is going to put out and hope you guys keep up the good job.

Thanks Logan R

Glad you liked the course. I'll have more courses coming out.

Dave, we used your "JavaScript & jQuery: The Missing Manual" book for a web programming course I took through a local community college. I thoroughly enjoyed it and use $("tag/class/id").find("tag") instead of $("tag/class/id tag"). I just finished the jQuery course here and am on the second lesson of your AJAX course where you get into using JSON. The only complaint I had about the jQuery course here was the instructor didn't cover assigning $(this) to $this as you did in your book. Other than that, he did a good job and I learned a few new things.

I'm currently on the Web Development track and when I saw I could add AJAX to the mix, I went for it! I'd like to see some courses on Node.js here on Treehouse.
