[Beginner] I can haz jQueries? - Amplexor (E0.07)

A session at Drupal Developer Days: Brussels

Saturday 5th February, 2011

10:00am to 10:45am (WET)

jQuery is awesome, it makes writing cross-browser compatible JavaScript really easy, but unfortunately, it also makes it really easy to do it wrong and kill your front-end performance not to mention the occasional kitten.

This session will pretty much start at the beginning, explaining the basic structures and paradigms somewhat unique to JavaScript and more particularly, to jQuery. It will also go more in-dept about certain structures to avoid and why.

It will not go over all the jQuery methods and plugins, but will rather provide you with the tools and knowledge to find what you need, evaluate plugins on their quality and perhaps write your own.

Hopefully, you will leave this session knowing how to write, debug and optimize jQuery code to create lean and mean front-end application interactions and animations.

This presentation will be largely based on sessions by people like Paul Irish (http://twitter.com/paul_irish), adam j. sontag (http://twitter.com/ajpiano) and Rebecca Murphey (http://twitter.com/rmurphey), so if you've attended their every session, you probably know more than I do ;)
