Introduction to JQuery

jQuery is a multi-browser JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.” Basically what this means is that it makes it easy and fun to make interactive Websites or, as I like to use it for, making nice looking web apps that can be run on a web server or locally with no internet needed.

JQuery is widely used. Google, Netflix, Microsoft, and Nokia are just a few examples of big names that use JQuery. So, it is compatible with all major browsers. This means, when you create something it should be compatible with pretty much all computers and devices. And, good programs should make their code as compatible as they can.

JQuery is released under an MIT license. I personally don’t know much about the MIT license, but I do know it is GPL compatible, which is a good thing.

I’m currently working on a video series teaching the basics of JQuery. Later on I’ll move on to JQuery Mobile and how to package your programs for use on different OS’s including making basic APK files for your Android devices.

    Great tutorial Kris. I made it through the first one and am looking forward to the next one in the series. Thanks for stringing it in series with the first one – now I know I can pick up where the last one left off!

    I think it’s cool that you don’t hide things like typos and I especially like you take it in stride when they happen. It gives hope to people like me who do that all the time.

    Great video.
