jQuery: What the web needs

Posted in coding, research by Brittany on January 29, 2010

According to the official website, jQuery is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.

Along with tutorials, they have a nice list of recommended books to read for those who want to have a break from the computer. As of this post, I’m unaware of any other websites that are completely dedicated to one framework/CMS and jQuery integration.

I find it much easier (although none of this is *easy* for me) to read through someone’s jQuery code than it is to read through someone’s JavaScript code for that reason.
