Class Details:

JavaScript is an interesting language. Unfortunately, the environment in which we normally use this language has been riddled with bugs and inconsistent implementations for years. To top that off, the main API we use (the DOM) is quite possibly one of the most tedious and verbose APIs ever devised. jQuery changes that.

Not only does jQuery "fix" the bugs and inconsistencies (by detecting them and working around them), it actually makes the DOM API pleasant to use. Querying for elements from the DOM and then manipulating them in various ways used to take dozens of lines of code regardless of how simple the task was. The same can usually be done in jQuery with just one or two lines of code. It's fluent API and focus on usability (for the developer) has changed the way we practice the art of front-end engineering.

This course guides you through learning jQuery so that you, too, can slice and dice your way through the DOM like a true JavaScript ninja.
