Good course but more context please

Half way through jQuery and I can complete the little assignments just fine but what actually is jQuery? The first challenge states that “It is the most popular Javascript tool”. OK so I think what that means is that it helps coding in Javascript in some way but if you are new to coding you need a lot more info I think. Maybe a 5 min intro video about why it came about and why we are learning it. HTML, CSS and jQuery all suddenly mixed together for no obvious reason (imagine you are a beginner with no knowledge) is a bit overwhelming

This is handled much better in the beta, where it’s split off, but the curious can of course always look up things themselves.


yeah researching things you don’t fully understand is a good option.

I think the way the course starts by holding you with both hands led me to believe that it would do this for me
