IP250F13A jQuery Session Two Notes

Consider this picture.

Learning Cycle

Can you see how this applies to what you are doing before our sessions and while we are together?

Please reply with a comment about our second session.

Highlights / Metacognition

  • What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
  • What did you learn from that?
  • What will you do with that knowledge?


  • Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
  • What could we have done better?

If you spot a question from someone else and you can answer it – please do.

    It looks like displaying of contents of an element as text will be a very useful debugging tool, it will allow me to check my own code and understand what is going on better.

    I would be interested to see what happens with hover, mouseover, etc

      Hi Brian,
      Please see my reply (third comment) over here. I’ve posted screen shots of how using the F12 developer tools are working to show the live changes in the DOM as jQuery is affecting the page.

    I liked seeing the key/value syntax used in some jQuery functions:

    width : “70%”,
    opacity : 0.4,
    marginLeft : “0.6in”,
    fontSize : “3em”,
    borderWidth: “10px”
    }, 1500 );

    Seems to be a very natural way to describe the behaviour you want. I definitely want to try writing functions that can take arguments this way.

  3. […] finally: Please comment in the jQuery Session Two Notes – thank […]
