The use of frameworks and libraries is an excellent way of expediting web development processes. In this course on how to use jQuery, we will be taking a look at one of the most popular libraries for front-end development.
jQuery can simplify and improve programming by giving you more options to perform the same or new functions. For instance, in one of the first lessons, I take a look at a simple example of making an image appear or disappear once users click on a button.
When you start learning how to use jQuery, you will notice that the library offers many Ajax capabilities. However, how to use Ajax, and why would you consider it as a priority? Well, Ajax is one of the ingredients of interactive websites. In other words, it makes sure that the server would load data without refreshing the browser page.
In this jQuery tutorial, I will be starting by reviewing the features of jQuery and why developers should consider using this library. One of the main reasons is that jQuery lets you produce shorter code. It leads to your code being more readable if you work with several people on the same project. Therefore, learning how to use jQuery can lead to a more productive workflow with fewer misunderstandings.
However, before you learn how to use jQuery, you need to import the library to your code. I will show you the steps for making sure that all jQuery features work. If you follow my explanations, you should be able to perform this action without any issues.
Once you have everything prepared, we will learn jQuery functions that you can use. We will also briefly analyze the principles of the jQuery syntax so that you would be ready for the other lessons.
When we start focusing on how to use jQuery, we will take a look at various events, external scripting, chaining, callback functions, and other useful features. Additionally, I will show you how you can transform elements by applying various effects. For instance, you can make elements slide or fade out.
