Fcc beta talk - ask questions here


So when I took the FCC JQuery course I found it to be missing a lot. I had to go take a course on CodeCademy on it, and there was a lot more to it. Can we please do a revamp of the course so we can get more, like mouse events and maybe even some juicy stuff.



Who agrees with me? Leave your answer below




jquery is on its way out.

also seeking only for answers from people who agree is everything that is wrong with society

if you still use jQuery instead of a vanillaJS solution or a framework, you probably live in the Stone Age of web dev.
We have react and angular, why would you make your code ugly and inefficient on purpose?
Only good purpose i see to use jQuery is when you-re reading on design patterns in JS,THE Addy Osmany BOOK, which is a masterpiece and i recommend, but at the time I couldn-t understand, most of the examples of the book are written in jQuery… other than that, jQuery deserves to die a quick and silent death


The curriculum will be changing significantly soon. You can preview it at beta.freecodecamp.com. Just remember that this is a testing environment and there are still bugs.


It looks awesome.

Hate to be a stickler but, do u know when will it go live ?


As soon as it’s bug-free. The more people who help fix bugs (we’re open source and volunteer driven), the faster that will be. You can follow the issues to see what progress is being made.


You guys just made me sad that I wasted 2 weeks learning JQUERY on Codecademy


Where are the projects? Have them be on Sublime text and full website projects too. WE NEED TO BE CHALLENGED


In every section.


Don’t be sad. What you learned will be helpful. You may not always manipulate the DOM in the exact same way, but what you learned will transfer over and help you. And don’t get the idea that you are a dinosaur if you use jQuery. Sure, it’s not as popular and is declining, but it is still useful in certain instances, and knowing how to use it is helpful because a lot of code you see in other’s projects and on StackOverflow will be using it.



How come I cant sign in with my reg account. I had to make a new one, when can I use my oldie account


I love the new map tho. But where is Bootstrap 4?


The beta is a whole new website with a separate database. It is only for testing purposes. Your work on the beta will not be saved when everything gets finished. Your accounts, login, projects, everything are separate so there is no corruption between the two.

When the beta was started Bootstrap 4 wasn’t released. I believe it was just recently pulled out of alpha, and it takes time for us to update to the changes. Right now, our focus is fixing critical bugs so we can launch the beta website. Once the most important stuff is finished and the site is live, then we can focus on other tasks like updating to Bootstrap 4.


The beta version of the curriculum is just a beta testing ground. It does not link up with your “real” FCC account. Any work that you do on beta will never be copied over to the database that your account lives on and your beta account will disappear when beta is taken down. Please see the main thread about beta for further information about how beta testing works.


Thats great! One quick question, are there tracks in which you can create an operating system with unix or mod Windows with powershell. I also renamed this topic to Beta talk


Oh that makes sense. That in fact shows me how a website is very limited without a back end.


FCC is still all about web development. There is nothing about developing an operating system.


it should be a way to filter and assess whether or not the bugs or issues that are not real, I spent a bunch of time going through the FCC git and found several that are just raised by cheaters or people not willing to struggle.
what a waste of time…
sorry if I seem rude but it frustrated me a lot


That filtering and assessment is human-powered.
