Along with a new widget, of course, there is a lot of new documentation and new resources for getting started and using it. The schedular, with it’s already powerful and flexible feature set (in spite of still being a ‘beta’) is no exception, of course. And one of the best resources I’ve seen for getting started with it, is the Kendo UI Scheduler screencast course at Udemy.com.
There’s a lot that I like about this course, having watched all 10 lessons over the last few days. The author, Ayad Boudiab, goes in to great depth and detail about how to use the various aspects of the scheduler from both a UI and interactive perspective, but also from a code and configuration perspective.
Each episode past the first two, shows a quick review of how to get the scheduler up and running in your page. From there, Ayad dives in to one aspect of the schedular, covering the configuration and functionality in the user interface as he goes.
One of my favorite parts about this course, honestly, is
make. Ayad accidentally forgets a
) in a few places
and this breaks the code he’s writing. When this happens, though,
he quickly recovers by walking through each line of code
that he just wrote, looking for mistakes.
Personally, I find this style of learning - by watching others correct problems - to be invaluable. Having all of the answers all of the time just doesn’t mesh with my view of the world. We all make mistakes and seeing how others discover and correct those mistakes adds a lot of value to any screencast series.
Beyond the schedular itself, this course is also a great introduction and getting started course for Kendo UI itself. In the first lesson, Ayad covers the basics of what Kendo UI is, how to download it, what files need to be included in your HTML, and more.
If your new to Kendo UI, need to help get someone else up to speed, or you want to see a deep dive in to the new Scheduler widget, you need to check out this course. It’s free to register for a Udemy.com account and the course itself is also free.
So check out the Kendo UI Scheduler course at Udemy.com. It’s well worth your time.
