What's this jQuery? How it will drive innovation?

In this talk jQuery Project Team member, Jonathan Sharp, sets out to answer four main questions: Where'd jQuery Come from?, Why is it so popular? How has it changed development? How will it drive innovation?

In the scope of his talk Johnathan also touches on:

  • What jQuery is not
  • Core concepts to understand before jumping into jQuery (CSS & Selectors, DOM, Events, JavaScript patterns, etc)
  • Query core, and jQuery project plugins
  • The larger jQuery Project including the jQuery core, jQuery UI, and jQuery mobile
  • jQuery going forward (HTML5, mobile browser support, official Plugins, growing corporate support services)

Finally, Jonathan will dig deep into a few code demos to illustrate some of the core concepts of jQuery, like events, JavaScript patterns, and making Ajax requests.
