w3schools - JQUERY EVENT sections needs urgent update


Recommended Posts

hi. w3schools was my first coding school ever. so I like it a lot. however, recently I have went through the Jquery EVENTS section and I was shocked to see how big the missing information on that section was.

 

First of all, The Jquery change event (i.e. changing checkbox) and scroll events are too important and their examples must be included ot help the beginners. Change event and scroll events are FUNDAMENTAL of Jquery.

 

I will give 2 examples on fiddle so I hope you would add it to jquery even section.

Hopefully one of the admins will see that, no one who frequents the forum has the ability to change the site.

 

The site is certainly incomplete, in a lot of areas. Sometimes they even claim the opposite. I like this statement on the PHP page:

 

 

 

At W3Schools you will find complete references of all PHP functions:

 

That's just laughable. Here's a page that lists over 5,000 documented functions and classes:

 

http://php.net/quickref.php

 

W3Schools doesn't even cover the SPL (standard PHP library), which is definitely a best practice for any starting programmer. You could go through the entire tutorial and never know that SPL even exists. They also totally gloss over object-oriented programming or classes in general, which is another best practice. All of their examples use procedural code, not object-oriented code. Some people might argue that OOP is too advanced for beginners, but you need it for Javascript also (in a sense). It was only recently that they switched their PHP/MySQL examples to use the mysqli extension instead of the mysql extension, even though mysqli has been around and recommended since 2004.

 

So yeah, they're a little slow to make changes, but I'm sure that what they do have meets the needs of most of their target audience. But W3Schools is certainly not the only resource someone should use to learn from, and people hit a point in their education where there's nothing more that they can learn with those tutorials.

 

For my part, when I try to contact the owners I'm usually met with silence.

Hi, justsomeguy. w3schools was nice when I was a beginnner :crazy:

 

the 2 example above are really fundamental and not very sophisticated. I hope at least some admin reads this and updates a little bit jquery more. :)
