Today, jQuery is used in over 60% of the million most-visited websites, and that makes it one of the technologies that every web developer should master. The problem is that jQuery is difficult to learn, especially for those with limited programming experience. But now, this new edition of our jQuery book makes it easier than ever to learn how to use jQuery to create the dynamic user interfaces, fast response times, and special effects that today's users expect.

In brief, sections 2 and 3 of this book present the essential jQuery and jQuery UI (User Interface) skills for developing professional jQuery applications. With those skills, you ll be able to add all of the popular jQuery features to your web pages: image swaps, image rollovers, slide shows, accordions, tabs, carousels, and much more.

Then, section 4 shows you how to use Ajax and JSON to get data from a web server and add it to a web page without reloading the page. It also shows how to use Ajax and JSON with the APIs for websites like Flickr and Google Maps and with HTML5 APIs like Geolocation, Web Storage, and Web Workers.

What about section 1? It provides a four-chapter crash course in the JavaScript skills that you need to use jQuery. That means you don't need to know JavaScript before you start using this book, and that makes this the right book for programmers who aren't familiar with JavaScript, as well as for programming novices. This section also becomes the ideal reference for the JavaScript that's used for the jQuery applications in this book...or for any jQuery application.

The last section of this book shows you how to use jQuery Mobile to develop mobile websites. This requires little or no programming, and it's a great alternative when it's impractical to rebuild an established website with Responsive Web Design.

About the Author:

Zak Ruvalcaba has been researching, designing, and developing for the web since 1995. As a full-time web developer, he's developed web applications for companies like Gateway, HP, Toshiba, IBM, Intuit, Peachtree, Dell, and Microsoft. As a full-time instructor, he's headed up the Front-End Web Developer Certificate Program in the San Diego Community College District, where he's responsible for running the program and developing the curriculum.

Review:

What I like about this and other Murach books is that within minutes of opening this book, you are developing hands-on with the technology in question, and that they are great for developers at any level--i.e., you can begin anywhere in the book, depending on your proficiency, and get going immediately. I am familiar with JavaScript but not jQuery, so in this case, I began with Chapter 5, Get off to a fast start with jQuery. The explanations and examples were so clear that I was able to add flip-on-hover effects to my site within minutes.

--Charles Zimmerman

I just finished a pretty heavy application project, the first serious work I have done with jQuery and Ajax. Along the way, I had to deal with preloading images, manipulations of the DOM, tabs, plugins and Dialogs. I had some elementary foundations to start with, but this was the first time I had to accelerate into some of the more advanced topics and best practices.

To make a long story short, I kept Murach's jQuery (2nd Edition) at my side throughout the entire project. It was indispensable to me. The answers were right there at every turn. All the examples made sense to me, and they all worked!

Beyond just serving as a good reference, I appreciate the teaching and presentation style used in this book. Coming from 20 years of database focus, this book was just right for me as I plowed headfirst into the other application tiers that I have always avoided in the past.
