However, you might not understand what that dollar is doing.
Maybe you’ve always wondered why
$("#container").on("click", ".thing") is better than
Probably not. But knowing the difference could make your code hundreds of times more efficient (and more flexible to boot).
Or perhaps you’ve heard people say that you shouldn’t be using jQuery? After this workshop you’ll not only be able to know when you shouldn’t use jQuery (and when you should), but also how to do it.
Things you'll learn
- How jQuery does what it does
- The DOM
- Scoping, first class functions, closures, and other technical sounding things
What you can expect from the day
The day will consist of topic presentations and a number of hands-on projects & exercises.
Prerequisites and preparation
To get the most out of this course you should have experience of using jQuery and some basic knowledge of programming.
You’ll need a laptop to take this course. You should also have the following installed before the workshop:
- Node (if you’re using a Mac we recommend using Homebrew to install Node)
- A text editor (we recommend Sublime Text or Vim)
- The latest version of Chrome Canary
It would also be great if you can bring along some jQuery code that you’ve written.
