over the last couple of years I’ve seen jquery grow leaps and bounds. And every time I look at some jquery code I feel there is something I am missing which I need to learn. I’ve given their documentation a try, and it seems to be ok for basic stuff.
Can you guys suggest a good jquery book that might help? I’m looking for something that doesnt go much in depth into the theory part of jquery but actually does and shows examples of how to do all the cool stuff.
Back in the days when I was in school, I never cared for JS, CSS, HTML …but now that after 3 years after school I see myself doing a lot of server side web development. I want to learn these technologies.
Very similar to the following question. stackoverflow.com/questions/414494
Here's a getting started tutorial for JQuery – dotnetcube.com/post/Getting-started-with-JQuery-in-ASPNET.aspx
Here are two good articles for getting started:
One of the best places to start is the jQuery Tutorials:
Tutorials – jQuery
Read the documentation – jQuery has really good support as well as lots of examples on jquery.com itself.
Besides, you’ll appreciate jQuery that much more when you realize you can accomplish in 1 line what used to take 50. 🙂
Once you get the basics of that, what jQuery does will come more naturally to you and it will seem easy.
I started using jQuery in a project and was learning from jquery website and my colleagues. After reading jQuery in Action I’ve learned many things that I was missing. I really enjoyed reading this book. And still is a very good reference. Jquery in Action also introduces to some jquery’s plugin.
Learn jQuery: jQuery in Action
Seriously… this one is worth getting when it comes out…
These books are all (co) authored by John Resig who also wrote jQuery itself.
For JS in general, I’ve also heard very good things about this:
Crockford and Resig both have free and comprehensive videos at the YUI theater. These three are good for a broad overview of general JS:
A great start point is the its online documentation.
Have a look at these video series they are awesome !! link
This link has a massive collection of almost everything you want to know about JQuery
JQuery cheat sheet
There’s a getting started tutorial here – Getting started with JQuery in ASP.NET
Another good book (along with “jQuery in Action”) is “Learning JQuery 1.3“, the updated version of (I think) the very first jQuery book.
Rebecca Murphey (of Yayquery Podcast fame) has released a book of her jQuery training materials. It is available here.
I recommend the articles and videos (screencasts) available at:
because the author, Remy Sharp, describes how and why he makes the choices he does and you can see the progress from start to finish.
