jQuery: An Introduction

TPR2 Technical: Propeller Hats Required Track



Let me introduce you to jQuery. jQuery makes JavaScript much easier, much more powerful, and much more reliable. We'll start with a basic introduction and move on to some simple examples, pros, cons, and favorite plugins (think extensions or applications). Then we'll open it up to the audience for some discussion. Are you a jQuery guru? Please join us and share your expertise and insight. Never heard of jQuery? Come and learn the basics. It's all about sharing the goodness that is jQuery.
