Course Description

In this course we cover the basics of jQuery including effects, manipulation, dynamic creation of elements, and interaction events. While Javascript is a very powerful language, we often have to write a lot of boilerplate code to work with different browsers. jQuery abstracts some of that logic away from us, so that we have more utilitarian functions that we can work with. Essentially, it’s a library that boosts Javascript front-end development.

We’ll explore jQuery to add and remove elements from the Document Object Model (DOM), we’ll look at event handling, and look at some other techniques that jQuery allows us to use that will make our development a bit easier.
