Welcome back to jQuery for Beginners. Just a quick recap first – in the first two weeks we covered the very basics of jQuery and interacting with elements. Last time round we made an accordion – something which taught us a few of the jQuery special animation functions that are built in to jQuery. Today we will be using those functions and a bit more as we look at creating a nice looking Gallery page, built with HTML and CSS, and then adding some nice interactive effects with jQuery.

Welcome to the third post in this series, taking you from jQuery novice to jQuery expert. The past two weeks have essentially just listed functions that you will need to know.

This may seem complicated, but it’s in fact very straightforward.

We’ll start slowly and each week add some more knowledge to your skill set and this will lead us on to doing much cooler stuff with the library. This series is aimed at people who have a strong knowledge of HTML and CSS, so if you don’t have a working experience of those two languages I suggest you learn those before coming back to this.
