Meetup: jQuery Overview


Have you seen animations on sites without the use of flash? Have you noticed calendars widgets, drag n’ drop features, fading elements and all sorts of dynamic things happening on websites these days? Have you heard of AJAX and want to know what it is and why it’s such a big deal?

jQuery is a JavaScript library that lets you do all sorts of great things with your websites. Google, Dell, NBC, and WordPress are just a few companies that use jQuery to spice things up. jQuery is one of the tools that helps web applications respond more quickly to user input and mimic some of the user-friendly features of desktop applications.

This presentation will go into some technical details but, don’t worry, background information and examples will help put the pieces together. If you’re not a developer, you’ll leave with a deeper understanding of how websites work. If you code, then you’ll have another tool to add to your arsenal.
