55 Jquery Tutorials, Resources, Tips And Tricks: Ultimate Collection


If for whatever reason you don’t know jQuery, it is a “write less, do more” JavaScript library. It has many Ajax and JavaScript features to allow you enhance semantic coding and user experience.

From jQuery homepage – “jQuery is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.”

jQuery definitely is one of the biggest trends coming in up-to-date designs and the best of all, everything is done without countless code lines. Keeping in mind such aspects I created hopefully pretty complete collection of jQuery sites, tip and trick articles, video screencasts, tutorials, cheat sheets and lot’s more. Took a while to compile and research was really solid. Enjoy as always!
