Overview

A really good web development framework anticipates your needs. jQuery does more-it practically reads your mind. Developers fall in love with this JavaScript library the moment they see 20 lines of code reduced to three. jQuery is concise and readable.

jQuery in Action, Second Edition is a fast-paced introduction and guide. It shows you how to traverse HTML documents, handle events, perform animations, and add Ajax to your web pages. The book's unique "lab pages" anchor the explanation of each new concept in a practical example. You'll learn how jQuery interacts with other tools and frameworks and how to build jQuery plugins. This book requires some knowledge of JavaScript and Ajax but no previous experience with jQuery.

This revised and expanded second edition includes even more lab pages than before, along with numerous examples that show the latest best practices developed by the jQuery community. It provides full coverage of jQuery 1.4, along with a deeper look at the ever-expanding world of jQuery plug-ins.

    Learn jQuery and principles of creating apps powered by jQuery

    This book is must have for everyone who doesn't know jQuery or use it only when they need a jQuery widget on their pages. Lot of developer don't understand jQuery. They just copy plugin in their code. What I like in this book is that it explains jQuery and jQuery app architecture. In first chapter you will get guidelines how to start organizing your code. That's very important.

    Some things are explained in details, maybe little bit too much for beginners, but if you want to become tru jQuery developer, this book is pure gold. I have 10+ years of web experience and it's hard for me to say does some demos need more explanation but I think lab examples can help you understand the true power of jQuery code.

    If you are beginner, jQuery starter of someone who uses finished jQuery examples, read this book. You'll be much smarter ;) IMHO it is must have book for every web developer.
