About This Course

jQuery is a JavaScript library that simplifies many common tasks done in vanilla JavaScript. jQuery is really good at handling “events” on a webpage like when someone clicks or moves their mouse. jQuery is also good at finding(selecting) a small part of a webpage and making very specific changes to that part.

The Advanced jQuery Techniques training course delves into advanced jQuery methods, techniques, and topics like filters, promises, callbacks, and plugins.

Javascript Developer, RetailMeNot
I had trouble understanding a certain concept, and told the instructor that I just didn't get it. While the class was busy with an exercise, he sat down with me, gave me material to read, and made sure I understood it before I moved on. I really appreciated that.

The instructor has a great attitude and pacing. Amazing how much he knows about JS!
