Course Summary

jQuery is small, jQuery is fast, and jQuery is simple. This trio of benefits is something you won’t find in many of the popular front-end frameworks and libraries. This course will teach JavaScript developers how to use jQuery to create interactive web pages. This will involve event handling, document manipulation, AJAX requests and more. The past few years have seen the rise of many front-end tools such as React, Angular, Vue, and so on. Developers have become so reliant on these large, dependency-heavy tools that they have very little idea how to create interactive web pages without them. jQuery offers a different approach - the possibility to use a small, simple library that works very closely with the actual webpage instead of building websites through the thick gloves that most frameworks force you to use

Who can benefit?

The course is for you if...

  • You’re already a front-end developer and want to use jQuery to build interactive, performant sites.
  • You’re a software developer with little to no experience in web development and want to jump right into the most advanced technology for doing so.
  • You’ve seen the large number of jQuery-related job postings and want to advance your career

What you will learn?

  • Create interactive, performant websites without a huge, monolithic framework.
  • Query and manipulate web page content.
  • Leverage AJAX to load data and make other network requests.
  • Handle web page events such as clicks, typing, etc. in an easy, intuitive way
