    We learned how to use Jquery attributes methods. These methods get and set DOM attributes of elements. ie. we can attributes ‘on the fly’.

    What did you learn from that?
    I could be way more efficient.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    I think that this could be used to great effect when you are working on cause + effect = interactivity.

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    It looks like visual effects are on the agenda for next week. I am looking forward to that.

    What could we have done better?
    Good class. You gave us all of the pieces. I am looking forward to putting them together.

    It’s a toss-up between fixing my previous homework and the pair assignment/activity.
    Debugging a great way to learn because it forces you to really understand what went wrong in order to fix the issue. Personally, I find working through problems helps me retain knowledge better.
    The pair exercise was also useful because having to explain things to someone else is a great test of one’s understanding of the subject.

    Since the issue came up in my last homework, I would be interested in learning a little bit more about non-anonymous function declarations – different ways to declare (“var x = function()” vs “function x()”) and the placement or the script (beginning in doc ready vs at bottom). I’m not sure if this is a jQuery specific or general Javascript concept, though…

    The most valuable thing I learned was the added information on “selectors” and “functions”.
    I am hoping that this will allow me to do more amazing things with websites in the future.

    Learning about different selectors that I did not know about before, also that adding a second selector after a comma adds context to the first selector, before I’ve just been using CSS-style selectors.

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    What could we have done better?
    I’d like to know if there’s an easy way to debug jQuery.

    Highlights / Metacognition

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    how to use selector to set/get attributes values.
    What did you learn from that?
    Always think about sql select statement
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Player around the code to have a better understanding of selector.
    Questions?

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    What could we have done better?
    Get to know more about selector with/without id, how to set/modify the DOM attributes.
    I wonder if there is more code example to play with.

    I never used HTML5 semantic tags beyond the header and footer before. Some of it i think is still too new to be practical and are pretty much just a new convention for common divs however i do understand now a little bit more on article tags and why they appear so frequently in WordPress
