jQuery: The JavaScript Library of the Future

jQuery is a different type of JavaScript library, with emphasis on getting the job done with the most efficient code possible. JavaScript DOM manipulation -- even with some existing JavaScript libraries -- can be tedious and uninteresting. But jQuery provides a new and exciting way to wrap existing markup with awesome dynamic functionality in a few lines of code. Not only is the approach powerful, but elegant as well. This presentation will go over the key parts of the jQuery library, including selectors, DOM transversal and manipulations, events, effects, and ajax -- including running code examples.
