I thought i had a pretty good grasp of jQuery, but this class was filled with lots of neat tricks and tips and gave me an overall more robust understanding of jQuery.

This course taught me things I didn't even know existed in jquery until I watched it. I had never heard of promises / when / then even after having worked in web development for almost a decade. The new material was well laid out and very easy to grasp with multiple examples and labs. Another home run for the code school team :)

Super helpful. I've been a network engineer for a long time, and had shunned working on front end development b/c I figured it be too much of a pain. In order to be productive, I focused on using a very limited toolset, so I wouldn't get bogged down in the various idiosyncrasies of javaScript and browsers. I figured that it took enough energy just to figure out how to get Perl/CGI working that I'd just stick w/ shooting out HTML tags from a Perl script on the server. But I was always frustrated with 1) how complicated my code got in terms of handling state and commingling presentation and data and how limited I was in terms of data presentation and interactivity. Codeschool has been incredibly helpful in providing a straightforward path to getting oriented and functional on the front end. Hidden in the jQuery courses are minicourses on the DOM and Ajax -- concepts that are essential and not limited to the land of jQuery. So beyond le... Super helpful.

Hidden in the jQuery courses are minicourses on the DOM and Ajax -- concepts that are essential and not limited to the land of jQuery. So beyond learning jQuery, the course is an excellent orientation to the basics of front end web development. I only wish I could have found these courses sooner. Feedback: the course ends with the `$.when().then()` pattern, but doesn't show how to do error handling with it. That would have been a nice way to cap the course off. All in all a great resource. Thanks.

This was a great follow up to both previous jQuery courses, and covered some material I wish I had known about earlier! It did an excellent job detailing $.Deferred, plugins, AJAX calls, and provided some excellent examples of code refactoring. Now my mind is full of all the code I need to rewrite to make it more maintainable and flexible! Great job, Gregg! An excellent follow-up or screencast would be to take Promises to the next level: nested Promises, .pipe(), and dealing with dependent WebSQL queries.

I knew javascript and new that there is a way to get data from the server to javascript, and heard of ajax... But when I saw your examples it has put everything in place for me so I can more or less orient myself in javascript- server communication. Thanks

After hundreds of tutorials, finally understanding: promises, map, deferred and many more topics. All courses are worth School Code. I take my free month by New Relic and Code School Thank you so much. (Sorry for my English)

I was able to learn a lot in the course. I'll even have to go back through a couple of lessons because they were so advanced (Promises). Overall it was set up really well and went at a good pace. However, I do wish the videos were broken up a little more and that the view slides tab was a little more thought out but that doesn't really relate much to the course itself.

This course taught me how to reuse ajax functions all around my applications, making it easier to read and cleaner to write.

The course is a companion to the try jquery course but its a little scattered. The examples were good but they start yo lose context sometimes. Overall the class was good high level overview. I think you guys to focus on making the classes connect between each other from HTML all the way through Rails. Two projects built from HTML all the way through Rails, modified with Ember or Angular etc. But either way good job.

Really enjoyed the course. As always, Gregg Pollack doesn't' disappoint here , making even promises a thrill to understand better (who would've taught someone could pull that off )? Highly recommended to anyone who wants to take their JavaScript to the next level or have fun refining their javascript skills. Outside of perhaps the ability to use Coffeescript for the challenges not being available, this course was perhaps the best JavaScript course I've taken. While certainly not inexperienced with JavaScript, if I was an entire newbie, I can't think of what better course to be well-equipped to kick some butt as a developing JavaScript Ninja. If you are getting familiar with JavaScript, what are you waiting for: take this class NOW. You won't regret it.

Through every course I wanted to download the video of the next chapter while working on the challenges. This course has that. And except for the background, which killed my eyes and soul, the course worked just as intended. A great selection of clever challenges and screencasts with a nice pace make it a commendable course. In general felt like a fresh take on the new concepts of Jquery, specially the promises part.
