Skillcrush launches our Javascript + JQuery class and other fun stuff in the first week of 2014

It’s 2014! All the best for the new year from the team here at Skillcrush. We are crazy excited to get started with some fab new things this January, one of which is the launch of our NEW Javascript  + JQuery class! If you know HTML & CSS and are ready to take your web skills to the next level, this class is for YOU. You can check it out here.

Still have “Learn HTML+CSS” on your bucket list? Why not start off 2014 right and learn how to build websites from scratch? Our January Intro to Web design + Development class still has a few seats left! Go ahead and grab them here and use the code ‘socialisfun’ for $50 off!

So what else cool happened on the web this first week of 2014? Check out my link love list below.

1. We need to talk about TED: Science, philosophy and technology run on the model of American Idol – as embodied by TED talks – is a recipe for civilisational disaster 

2. Launch of ReCode – a new venture for the AllThingsD Journalists 

3. Some good points: Do Digital Natives Really Exist? 

4. Dad Creates Fun Lunch Notes to Put in His Son’s Lunchbox 

5. This Artist Uses Emoji to Explore Empathy, Autism, and How We Connect 

And if you didn’t END 2013 with a social media recap, check out this post on the Skillcrush blog featuring some fun apps to help you relive your top moments of the last year.
