About This Class


Wanting to take your website building skills to the next level? Want to write JavaScript that's easy to code, quick to code, and works accross browsers? Or maybe you've heard of jQuery but never known what it really is? jQuery will change your web life! It allows you to focus making the next big thing (or cool little thing) rather than worrying about cross-browser bugs, optimization, and writing massive amounts of code for almost everything you're wanting to do.

This class is a fun introduction to jQuery, and covers the basics! The class is structured in an easy-to-understand way. We go step by step through writing your own jQuery, and what it all means – through a few simple examples :)

If you're new to building websites I have a beginners class on building your first website with HTML and CSS and a beginners class on writing JavaScript. I'd suggest doing these beforehand, or having a basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (only the basics needed).

I am not a GUI developer, but I have seen lots of GUI code. This was a very helpful class and was presented in a quick-paced build-as-you-go manner that made a lot of GUI code that I had seen make sense. The light bulb went off for understanding JQuery in our GUI.
Easy to understand and he's entertainnig too!

Product Designer

Although Rich calls himself a Product Designer he's more of a jack-of-all-trades / generalist / unicorn. He designs, animates and codes. And if you want to learn how to make stuff unicorn-style then read on! Rich studied multimedia design and graphic design, and taught himself to code. He's freelanced, worked for agencies and startups, and now runs a studio with his wife in Amsterdam. He creates compulsively, has super ginger-powers and can touch his nose with his tongue!
