@Lilyheart I'm a few steps behind most of the people here. Yesterday, I finished bootstrap, and I did a couple exercises on jquery. There are some things that I don't feel on top of, so I make detours. I did a few things on the www.w3schools.com, then I went to check out Khan Academy.
Khan Academy started with an introduction from John Resig, the developer who invented jquery. The recommendation was to know HTML, CSS, and javascript before starting.

I understand why FCC chose to go over jQuery before js. It is easier and much less daunting. But, I do agree. A full understanding a javascript should come before fully understanding jQuery. FCC’s jQuery section is more like a quick intro though.
You actually aren’t behind! By my count you are actually right in the middle. Four ppl behind you and four ahead!

I'm doing Khan Academy's CSS lessons; they do some things that FCC didn't do, or just got the code in without really understanding. Khan Academy does a better job at explaining the relationship between different tags, elements, etc.

I’ve heard good things about Khan’s programming classes. Have you watched either the video from last week’s chat or visited http://welcome.montcode.com . I have quite a few resources listed in there as well.
I also just posted this to the Facebook group. https://medium.com/javascript-scene/learn-javascript-b631a4af11f2#.1ektdmlpp It’s an older post but still with good information. It’s by Eric Eliiot who is an author of many js books.

I’ll add to the welcome deck that khan is good for css as well! Right now I only mention javascript

Being in the middle feels better. I may also do a detour & take a skillshare class that does projects in html & css. It costs 99 cents to get 3 months of premium; if I don't like a class, not much is lost.

I’m doing the same. Besides FCC, I am also doing a udemy programming course.
Did you see the color game and noisy page I made for that course yet?
It’s like the class you mentioned and does a lot of projects. It’s been fun.
I look forward to seeing the projects you complete if you find the course worth continuing.
