jQuery in Action

with one comment

jQuery in Action cover image I just finished “jQuery in Action” by Bear Bibeault and Yehuda Katz. It’s an excellent book on the jQuery JavaScript library. The book comes with a number of example labs to try out various jQuery/JavaScript techniques w/o having to write a lot of code.

There’s plenty of jQuery information online, but “jQuery in Action” easily paid for itself in saved time in getting me up to speed quickly. It’s nicely organized, well written and the editing/quality control seems to be higher than many tech books (although that bar isn’t very high!). It also has a brief, 20 page, tutorial on JavaScript that you may find helpful.

jQuery may not satisfy the zealots on comp.lang.javascript, but I’ve found it to be an excellent JavaScript library thus far, and I think this book was the fastest way to becoming proficient.
