jQuery, the who, what, where, why and how


Jquerylogo[1] Ben Nadel created an excellent video post (warning, semi-long at 1.75hr) that covers pretty much all aspects of JQuery.

What is jQuery however?  jQuery is a lightweight JavaScript library that lets you do some amazing things.  From events to CSS manipulation to Ajax to effects, it can do a ton of very useful functionality.

To view some of the demos of just the UI features, head over to http://jqueryui.com/demos/
