jQuery Fundamentals Logo

You can think of jQuery as one of the four technologies that every professional web developer should master, along with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. So this class is for any web developer today. That includes web developers who know HTML5 and CSS3 but are new to JavaScript and jQuery, web developers who have done JavaScript programming but are new to jQuery, web developers who have used jQuery for special-purpose applications but don’t feel comfortable with it, or web developers who program in ASP.NET, JSP, or PHP on the server side and now want to master client-side programming.
