About Learning jQuery

Starting with an introduction to jQuery, you will first be shown how to write a functioning jQuery program in just three lines of code.

You’ll learn how to add impact to your actions through a set of simple visual effects.

You’ll also see how to create, copy, reassemble, and embellish content using jQuery’s DOM modification methods.

This book will take you through many detailed, real-world examples, and even equip you to extend the jQuery library itself with your own plug-ins.

You’ll step through each of the core concepts of the jQuery library, building an overall picture of its capabilities. Once you have thoroughly covered the basics, the book returns to each concept to cover more advanced examples and techniques.

This latest edition of Learning jQuery was released in June 2013 and runs to 444 pages. This truly is a detailed, well-written and highly-useful book.
