What You'll Learn

When it comes to writing Rich Internet Applications or creating slick, friendly user interfaces, jQuery makes using Javascript so much easier and more fun! Who says you need Flash for any kind of animation or cool effects?

In this workshop, you'll gain a fundamental understanding of how jQuery works, and how to write elegant client-side code with it. If you've been programming with Javascript, you'll be amazed at how you can simplify your workflow.

This workshop will cover:

  • JavaScript Object Notation (JSON)
  • How best to load jQuery and where to load it from
  • Foundational jQuery usage
  • Selecting specific element(s)
  • Manipulating the DOM
  • Using jQuery to modifying CSS
  • Event handling
  • Effects such as sliding and fading
  • Asynchronous Requests (AJAX)
Please note:
This workshop takes place on two nights, and both nights are covered in the tuition.

Great instructor. Clear explanations.Gwendolyn on 6/28/2012
I already knew a bit about jQuery and this class taught me a lot that I didn't know.Mike on 9/21/2011
The instructor was very knowledgeable. Fast and smooth lecture.Peter on 9/21/2011
Richard did an excellent job with the live coding, which can be hard to pull off. He also did a good job with the fact that there the was a range of understanding from people who just knew HTML to application developers such as myself.Joseph on 3/31/2010
I thought that Richard Jones did an excellent job in the Getting started with jQuery class. He used lots and lots of examples to explain things, tried hard to get us to think and answer questions, and was very generous in sharing his code with us.Judi on 3/31/2010
