A new book on jQuery, the powerful JavaScript library, has been released by Packt Publishing. In Learning jQuery, Karl Swedberg and Jonathan Chaffer, creators of the popular jQuery learning resource www.learninjgquery.com, share their knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm about jQuery to help users get the most from the library and to make their web applications shine.

Announced only in January 2006, jQuery is growing steadily into a fast, concise, JavaScript Library that simplifies how users traverse HTML documents, handle events, perform animations, and add Ajax interactions to web pages. jQuery is designed to change the way that JavaScript is written.

jQuery is a powerful JavaScript library that can enhance websites regardless of the developer’s background. For designers, jQuery leverages existing CSS and HTML skills, allowing them to dynamically find and change any aspect of a page. For programmers, jQuery offers an open -source, standards-compliant, unobtrusive approach to writing complex JavaScript applications.

Learning jQuery provides a gentle introduction to jQuery concepts, allowing users to add interactions and animations to pages, even if previous attempts at writing JavaScript have been unsuccessful. The book is designed to guide users past the pitfalls associated with AJAX, events, effects, and advanced JavaScript language features, as well as provide users with a reference to the jQuery library to return to again and again.

The book is written for web designers who want to create interactive elements for their designs, and for developers who want to create the best user interface for their web applications.

Learning jQuery is published by Packt and now available with Packt. For more information about the book, please visit www.PacktPub.com/jquery/book
