Maybe you’re a jQuery pro. Maybe you’re John Resig... But, in the other hand, maybe you read words like “jQuery”, and think: “jQuery What?” .

If you belong to this category of person, now is the time to learn jQuery.

According to jQuery.com, jQuery is a fast, concise, JavaScript library that simplifies how you traverse HTML documents, handle events, perform animations, and add Ajax interactions to your web pages. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.

jQuery is undoubtedly the most popular JavaScript library on the web today. It is used by 70% of the top websites and is becoming a standard in web development.

So, let's learn JQuery!

First of all: The jQuery Libraries

jQuery is a library that makes it easy to work with the DOM, listen for events, animate elements and issue AJAX requests among other things. However, actually jQuery supports three libraries that are:

  1. The jQuery library. This is the "official" library that people usually refer to when they use jQuery.
  2. jQuery Mobile is a lightweight framework for developing mobile webapps or websites.
  3. jQuery UI. A collection of widgets like date pickers, dialogs, progress bars, effects and more aimed at interactive web applications.
