About the Author
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I will be writing plugins galore with this book to go with the Wordpress 2.8 themes book I already have.
PACKT publishing seem to have a very consise and relaxed sytle, which is very easy to absorb and utilise. If you need to add that little something, be true to web standards and accessibility then this book will help you a long way towards that goal.
Simple as that.
The first half of the book uses simple examples to go through all the basics of JQuery.
The second part then uses more advanced examples to show how all this can be put together.
It also contains a full reference with short descriptions.
The explanations are simple and easy to understand (I was able to read it on the bus, not needing a computer to follow along).
The authors have gone to a great length to explain every single new line of code.
I quickly picked up enough to do some coding myself and within a week I was able to make complicated tasks that impressed my boss. ^_^
I will highly recommend this book to anyone new to JQuery who wants to make advanced web pages in easy steps.
The reviews were absolutely right.
Unusually, I hardly ever refer back to this book, because I was able to absorb pretty-much everything it teaches.
I just sat down, read it, and learned jQuery.
If you need to learn jQuery, buy this book. I'm not kidding, it's brilliant!
(and I don't know the author or have shares in the publisher! :) )
Whilst the text is good, many of the examples are corrupted with additional markup or text insertions - clearly these are placeholders by the publisher but they appear inside the code and ruin reading through the examples and getting the flow. With so much of the book being code in the end it just becomes too frustrating to read.
A good publication ruined by a sloppy conversion. Buy the paperback.
Read the whole book, cover to cover (which is rare for a programming book). Good stuff all the way through. Highly recommended! Very clearly demonstrates the power of jQuery and how to do some really cool stuff. AJAX, animation etc etc.
