I don't know Mark Myers personally, but it is obvious that he cares about his readers. This is communicated through his great learning design and the way he interacts with his readers. I'm a huge fan of his work and his process for engaging with learners. In summary, there is so much you can learn from his 3 great books, but probably even more you can learn by paying attention to what he's actually doing to share his knowledge with the world.
The author succeeded in dividing the information in small enough pieces that can be easily grasped by person without any experience in the field. The online exercise, although sometimes seems tedious and repetitive helps a lot for retaining the information and boosting the confidence of the newcomer.
You will not become a proficient programmer just by passing through his books, but they are creating the foundation for further development of your programmer skills. For example his books have few theoretical explanations why certain things functions in the way explained and does not explain basic concepts
I cannot say that I have become a proficient/experience programmer on this language but definitively I succeed in getting the hang of it.
I can't believe how much time Mr Myers put into perfecting this step by step teaching method. First and foremost achievement - all the exercises and examples actually work. I spent 35 years in IT starting with Autocoder (does anyone remember that language) and finally retired as the world’s oldest Java designer/programmer :).
That odyssey required learning a new paradigm every few year exposing me to dozens of classes, courses and self-learning activities as both a student and a teacher. This is one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever encountered.
This is the best I’ve ever encountered. Mr Myers, thank you!
Cons: the website with the lessons is all sorts of broken, which is odd. Things like: missing navigation links for all of the expected items (home, contact, about, etc.) as well as for navigating through the lessons for each book. It's just bizarre that a book designed to teach code for websites would have such crappy code for the website itself.
BUT, if you, like me, were in desperate search for something to hand-hold you through the baby steps of learning jQuery, this gets the job done. AND even more importantly, it is SO easy to absorb each lesson that you would have to REALLY be a champion excuse maker to not just plow through the whole thing.
I'm giving this 5 stars because the shortcomings, while odd, really don't detract from the objective of working through the book while doing a bazillion small, repetitive, hands-on exercises.
