Part 1: Getting Started
Getting comfortable with HTML and CSS is no easy task. These tasks are underrated in the community and taken for granted.
Be it that you love writing good clean and minimal markup with accessibility concerns addressed or you have a single div and feel like you can conquer the world in your CSS file.
There is jQuery, React, Angular, Node, Vue and countless other libraries and frameworks that people are talking about and writing tutorials for.
So where do you start? What is the best place to get your feet wet? Do you start with jQuery but you just read that people don’t use jQuery anymore?
But, what worked for me and what we are going to break down is a few common things that happen in a lot of projects and use that as a launching off point. Once, we nail down these concepts. We will be off to the races.
Vanilla vs Jquery
In this series we will use examples of vanilla and jQuery. You might feel more comfortable with one set of syntax over an another. The goal is just to get you to writing some scripts.
With jQuery you will have to load an external file on your site every time you want your code to run. Something like this.
With vanilla js your browser can run that code natively.
Part 2: Coming Soon
We will discuss the console and click events.
