The folks over at Boston PHP are hosting jQuery jAM Season 2 (at midnight – to really put the AM in jAM 😉 ). This is great opportunity for those who want to get started learning jQuery to meet and greet with others who share the passion of coding and the desire to take their skill to the next level.
This is a virtual study group so you don’t need to worry about being on site. The course is also a go-at-your-own-pace with forum/discussion boards where you can post your work and your questions for each “hour”. The recommended pace is one “hour” (or chapter) per week, although some users have gone ahead and are already several “hours” into the material.
The manual for the course is the book Sams Teach Yourself jQuery Mobile in 24 Hours (available at the Boston PHP bookstore), and I will be hovering around and occasionally responding to questions when readers have questions or get stuck.
To really get the most out of it, many users are setting up blogs or websites where they are posting the answers to the questions at the end of each hour. This way they can share what they’ve done with other users, and as a reference they can go back and look at.
Please note that this course is a beginner level course (as is the material in the book), so advanced users may not get as much out of the course as new developers.
I hope to see you on the discussion boards at the meet up!
