Publisher's Description

2nd Edition

The books examples are verified to work with jQuery 1.10.1 and 2.0.2 .

jQuery is a JavaScript API that makes it easy to make your HTML pages come to life. In other words, jQuery makes it easy to modify HTML elements while the page is displayed in the browser. You can show / hide elements, create / remove elements, change CSS classes and properties, react to mouse and keyboard events, use AJAX etc.

"jQuery Compressed" teaches web developers how to use jQuery. The book is targeted at somewhat experienced developers, who already know what HTML, the DOM and JavaScript is. Therefore this book will get you up to speed faster than any other book out there.
