Which is newest, Intro to jQuery or jQuery Basics?

Which is newest, Intro to jQuery or jQuery Basics?

Intro to jQuery is in the front end tech degree, but jquery basics is in the front end track. Why is this and which is most current? The Intro to jQuery course is still using var and no arrow functions - so no ES6.

Introduction to jQuery is the newest. I would recommend doing this course first than moving to jQuery basics. jQuery basics is more in-depth.

It looks like you've already found the supporting evidence.

If one of the courses includes ES6 syntax, that's a sure sign that it was recently revised. It may also be worth noting that jQuery Basics is a more extensive course and over twice the size of Introduction to jQuery.

I haven't done the other course yet so I have no idea whether or not it uses ES6 syntax - which is partly why I am asking.

Oh, perhaps neither uses ES6 then. But as I said, they are quite different in length. The intro should not take very long (the estimate is under 2 hours) to complete and might make a good "warm up" for the other course.
