This course is fantastic and I really wish I've take this course when I started working with jQuery plugins last year! It answered SO many questions for me. Even now after having used many plugins already, I still learned lots of very useful and helpful information, like custom events and how to properly modify plugins' look and behavior. Dave is an amazing teacher, I absolutely love him.

Great Course. Dave really knows how to teach and explain the plugins. He is very informative and greatly explains how to utilize Jquery and the plugins. I hope to one day become a JavaScript expert like Dave.

Dave is my favorite Treehouse instructor. His teaching style and explanations make it easy to pick up on subjects. I highly recommend any of his courses. I had previously been exposed to jQuery, but learned a ton in this course. Trying to self-teach developer skills is hard, and it really helps to have someone who can break down what you might find in source documentation in a way that's easy to understand. Try it out!

Loved this course. I thought plugins were going to be a snore. I felt like I had a good understanding about plugins and actually gain a little confidence in jQuery too as I realised I actually do have a clue. Dave is a very engaging and fun teacher, as usual, he had challenges to his course that are really good and I think are the key to really absorbing what he is teaching. I also loved the website we worked on too which was also styled in a fun way. Loved the dog, bet he's a great Teammate. Thank you

I really enjoyed this course and learned a lot from it. I am excited to continue exploring and working with many plugins. Dave's instructions and explanations were very clear and easy to understand. He gave an excellent criteria on deciding which plugins to use. Great job!

Great job Dave! I like how the course gives 3 examples of plugins, how to apply and even a little debugging. It's probably good to have a little Javascript experience to start.

Best course I have had with Dave. Although Dave has walked me through some heavy material with grace, this was the most fun. The lesson paralleled the challenge and at the end of it all the information seemed to click. Really enjoyed this one. You can not go wrong with Dave as an instructor, the guy knows his stuff and enjoys sharing it.

Dave is honestly the best teacher on Treehouse that I have come across so far. He's so clear in what he has to say, and he makes sure to remind you of some concepts that you may have forgotten in other courses. Not only that, he also challenges students with small projects to reinforce what the student has learned. Thank you for that, Dave. I'm starting to feel more confident in my programming abilities thanks to you.

The only reason content was low for this course is the idea that a lot of it was self explanatory if you were following the JS development track and understood how to read documentation. Otherwise, Dave is always an excellent instructor, with great examples and even common problems / troubleshooting steps.

Another excellent course. I have taken others from Dave and he is an excellent instructor. The course content is amazing and I really learned a lot. Some background and technical info and then right into using plugins on an actual site. I feel very confident in my ability to choose, install, modify, and customize plugins are never using one before this course.

I already knew how to use jquery plugins pretty well so i thought the course was a waste of time but had to do it as it was part of the Treehouse Front End Development courses. However i learnt a lot, i'm more confident with jquery plugins now and jquery in general.

Dave is a wonderful instructor and is extremely clear in his communication. He explains the idea, then demonstrates it and moves to the next topic. Neither lingering too long nor rushing on any subject. Thank you Dave.

Excellent teacher, expands on the topic and discusses the logic behind using what we are using so its not just copy and paste. Incubates the knowledge that can be applied outside of the scope of this course and on real life projects, theories like those goes a long way.

I enjoyed this course very much. Courses with Dave McFarland are generally really good and this was not exception. The material is covered in enough depth to be helpful but not so much as to overwhelm. Dave does a good job of linking to other courses/material that can be helpful. Dave's courses do a really good job of giving us projects to do which really reinforce the material. I would like to see other courses in Treehouse take this same approach. The only criticism that I have (which is not the fault of the instructor) is that I was using newer versions of both Slick and Sticky which caused a bug that took a few hours to find and solve. I am thrilled that I now feel like I can use jQuery plugins which is something that I have wanted to do for quite sometime.

Course content was good & fun. However, there were errors in instructor's code. Sticky navigator bar didn't work on the index.html page & there was no vertical scrollbar which should have been present. Slick plugin was "slick!" Love Treehouse's self-paced, anytime, anywhere, online learning format!

This course was explained clearly and concisely. It was easy to follow along with and when required I cold pause and rewind content to ensure that I had written my code correctly. The teacher is well prepared with all documents that you need tor complete the set tasks. This is a well organized course and I highly recommend it.

This course was really useful to understand about jquery plugins. This course discusses right from where and how to find, when not to use and how to use it in the project. Easy to learn as well.
