Class Description:

Many of us remember the "Language Wars" of just a few years ago -- a hotly contested battle of Java v. PHP v. ColdFusion v. .NET. Oddly, the winner was...JavaScript.

In the last few years, the language of choice for Web applications has become a little scripting language that everybody used but almost no one bothered to master. The hype behind "Web 2.0" has thankfully died down, but the reality is that, more and more, users expect Web applications that perform more like desktop ones. And for that, there's only one choice: JavaScript.

The problem is that the browsers can't quite seem to agree on which JavaScript features to support -- and how to support them. Enter JavaScript libraries such as Prototype, Scriptaculous, Dojo -- and jQuery.

jQuery is the work of John Resig and his vision was to create a cross-browser compatible library that would greatly simplify the use of JavaScript's sophisticated features. The library is a stunning success.

In this class, you'll learn how to use jQuery (and the many jQuery plugins) to create the kind of interfaces that users will love. If you want to learn how to make your interfaces sing, don't miss this class, taught by Hal Helms. Hal will share his love for jQuery and show you ridiculously easy ways to make your interfaces sing.
