Reasons to use jQuery?
– Use with relative ease.
– Open source, it’s free!
– Excellent documentation (unlike other java libraries)
– Cross-Browser Support
– Extremely customizable and user-friendly
– Gain the “Web 2.0” look without teaching yourself
The article continues to reach into more in-depth uses of jQuery and I feel it would be worth a read for those of you confused on the topic. Relating this to class is, simply put, easy. We are working with jQuery now and making us of it in our next project. I hope to find more articles involving jQuery so that I may gain the skills to push it to its limits!
