Learning JS @ HackerYou
Posted by: admin on July 13, 2016
The registration process was quick, friendly, and easy, and the management staff themselves immediately made you feel like you wanted to be there. The buildings and learning spaces were clean, inviting, and very well maintained. Before I had even taken my first class, HackerYou was already hitting all of the marks.
Going into the course I knew very basic jQuery. Making a button, hiding/showing things on the screen, fading items in and out. My understanding of how the language worked was very basic at best, and my familiarity with the syntax was rather sparse.
The mentors chosen by Wes and HackerYou for the part-time course were exceptional. Karley MacDonald, Anna Mackenzie, and Matt Fairley were always very friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help anyone and everyone in the class. If you were struggling with anything in class, between Wes and the mentors, you were guaranteed to find your way through the problem. They didn’t fix the problem for you, they guided you through it and helped you to understand why you were doing what you were doing.
