Treehouse launches jQuery project

Treehouse has launched a new jQuery course, which aims to walk designers and developers through the basics of jQuery and JavaScript. During the project, students learn how to add interactivity to a website, working with form validation, jQuery plug-ins and Google Maps.

On the reasoning behind the new course, Treehouse founder Ryan Carson told .net: "jQuery is one of the most popular ways to add interactivity to a website. We think it's important for everyone who's learning how to make websites to learn jQuery." Treehouse jQuery educator Andrew Chalkley added that teaching interactivity was also the "next logical step" in Treehouse's offering, given that it has been working through teaching how to build a site and make it responsive.
