Strange Loop

Building Applications with jQuery UI

We'll start with an overview of jQuery UI and the widget factory. We'll dive into how the widget factory works, how it provides a unified API across all jQuery UI widgets and how to leverage it to build your own widgets. We'll also cover the jQuery UI CSS Framework and how to leverage existing themes with your own custom widgets, as well as how to build a new theme that will work with any widget that uses the CSS Framework.
