Today I’ve started working on a new project.  I’m learning how to use and interact with jQuery.  I’ve learned a bit about javascript, but mainly all from W3schools tutorials.  Now I’m going to start going through a jQuery tutorial to figure out how to make and use effects for our website.  This will be the first time I’ve truly started applying my programming to a work project.

I’ll let you know how things are getting along with jQuery in the next couple of days.  It’s fairly daunting at the moment.  I’ve been instructed, however, that I should keep in mind that javascript isn’t something you can really get an overall picture of.  It’s a language that grew and thus needs to be learned bit by bit.  In some ways that reminds me of the English language, and how much it was affected by so many other languages and though patterns.
