The DOM scripting toolkit: jQuery

A session at QCon London 2008

jQuery is a JavaScript library which allows you to develop solutions with less code, in less time. You can build interactive prototypes for your prospective clients, or take an existing solution and add new dynamic behaviour with very little effort.

This presentation will introduce, and demonstrate, how jQuery can be used to quickly and concisely apply JavaScript behaviour to your web app. It will cover selectors, Ajax, DOM manipulation, plugins and more. It will show you how to turn 20 lines of code in to just a few lines of unobtrusive jQuery.
