This years report had over 20,000 respondents. That is more than double the amount from last year. They have also included some interesting charts to try and provide color to this year’s data.
If you have not signed up to be a part of this report each year, you need to head over to the website and sign yourself up. The more people that participate, the more accurate the data.
There are some interesting data points in this survey; especially when you compare it to last years data. I did a quick YouTube video on my thoughts. Take a look at it and then leave your comments about the report.
Since the release of the Advanced Topics course I have been hard at work on adding a section to that course on functional programming concepts as well as a new course on regular expressions. And now I have begun to think about what courses should come next, and I would like your input. Here are a list of some of the courses sitting in the wings. (You can get a full list of upcoming topics here.)
jQuery. Yes, jQuery is not the darling child anymore, but it is still used extensively, so it is important to know how to use it effectively.
So which topics are most important to you? Let me know in the comments sections.
If you are interested in taking this course, here is a link that will allow you to take the course hugely discounted on Udemy:
Here is the first tutorial in this section. It shows two techniques for computing a fibonacci sequence given two starting numbers and how long you want the sequence to be.
The tutorials are currently organized into 5 categories. As we see the need, we will break them out into more categories. Take a look at the list and find those you would really like to view.
Sometimes the most difficult part about a project is starting. It can reduce a lot of stress and put you well ahead if you have a process for starting a project.
For example, something I commonly do is to spend time setting up the structure of the project and the processes needed to test and minify project files. That little bit gets my head into the project and then I can get going. Otherwise, I feel like I languish before I can really get started.
The other day I read a great article at Sitepoint about how to approach projects. I thought it organized all the starting tasks really well. These starting tasks are not only important, but I realized they can accomplish the same thing of getting your head in the project and getting you going in the right direction.
I love this type of question! Not so much because I want to find out if I am an expert. It is mainly because I love to read the answers that people post to this type of question.
Obviously the posts will reflect what that person sees as important. I find this very helpful because I can then evaluate whether that is a strength of mine or not. If it is not a strength, I can look to learn more in that area.
However, in order to receive that help you have to be able to figure out what is available, find out what it does, and then implement it into your project. It is important to keep abreast of libraries and frameworks, but what is the best way to do that?
