Updates to the Web Development Path

Good news! We’re making several changes to the Web Development Path.

Why?

Everything can always improve! We took a look at our Web Development path to find ways to make the content even better and set our learners up for greater success!

We’re adding several lessons, projects, and quizzes to introduce and scaffold important concepts in web development. We also know how important practice is in cementing learning, so we’ve added several new challenging projects to the path. You’ll learn how to develop applications locally, and work on real-world style projects which tie everything you’ve learned together.

How does this impact you?

If you’ve already started or completed the Web Development Path, you will see some new content added to the Path.

You won’t lose progress on the coursework that you’ve already completed; however, you may notice that your overall progress percentage has decreased, as there is a greater amount of content included in the Path.

When?

The lessons will be updated beginning at 1:00 PM EST on Friday, July 12, 2019. We expect the updates to be finalized by 7:00 PM EST the same day.

Take a look below to get an overview of the updates.

Changes to The Web Development Path

New content covering:

Plus several challenging cumulative projects:

  • Jamming
  • Boss Machine
  • Gold Medal Metrics
  • Codestrips
  • X-Press Publishing
  • Expresso

We’ve also decided to remove our jQuery curriculum from the Web Development Path. Though this content is a great introduction for anyone interested in learning jQuery, with all the improvements made to JavaScript over the last few years, jQuery is no longer an essential skill for every web developer to have in their skill set.

We’ve decided to remove this content from the path so that you can focus on the most important concepts. If you’re curious about jQuery or you encounter an older codebase that still uses it, head over to our Learn jQuery course!

TL/DR:

We’re updating our Web Development Path so that it’s an even better learning experience. It now covers additional important topics, doesn’t cover some less important ones, and reinforces all of that learning with engaging cumulative projects!
