Product Description


Praise for jQuery, jQuery UI, and jQuery Mobile


“de Jonge and Dutson’s cookbook approach to jQuery, jQuery UI, and jQuery Mobile teaches how to create sophisticated projects quickly, removing all the guesswork. They really make jQuery seem effortless!”

—Joseph Annuzzi, Jr., Web architect, PeerDynamic.com


“This book is great for all aspects of jQuery development; it has it all, from a great UI section down to the most current tech, which is mobile. I found myself referencing this book numerous times for projects I am currently working on.


“This book will be excellent for anyone who is eager to learn more about jQuery and what the capabilities are. The authors put the learning in terms that anyone can understand and build from.”

—Erik Levanger, UI UX engineer


“I have often said that when it comes to jQuery, half the battle is just being familiar with the types of things it is capable of doing. Having a good foundation can easily help you bridge the gap between ‘This is going to be complicated’ and ‘I can do that with jQuery!’ Like any good recipe book, this book includes ready-to-use code samples that demonstrate basic to advanced techniques. In addition to the major areas noted in the book title, there are references on how to customize the jQuery UI features to meet your needs and bonus sections about creating and using plugins. I also really appreciate the authors’ insights regarding performance issues and best practices. Lastly, speaking as someone with no previous jQuery Mobile experience, this book provides solid examples to get you up and running fast. Overall, this book will help to greatly expand the skills in your jQuery arsenal.”

—Ryan Minnick, software developer, Verizon Wireless


“The ultimate cookbook for anyone using jQuery, jQuery UI, or jQuery Mobile.”

—Stretch Nate, Web applications developer, HealthPlan Services


“Through easy-to-understand recipes, de Jonge and Dutson give the reader a practical introduction to all things jQuery, from the most basic selectors to advanced topics, such as plugin authoring and jQuery Mobile. A great starting point for anyone interested in one of the most powerful JavaScript libraries.”

—Jacob Seidelin, Web developer, Nihilogic

I'm not a professional web developer, but have been writing code for many years. While I have a good grasp of Javascript, I needed some help getting to grips with jQuery quickly for a personal project.

I read the sample pages on Amazon, and after a couple of pages I knew this was the right book for me. The style of the book is more like a guide, the author takes you through a tour of useful features, and give you examples of how the feature works. This is completely different to other books which takes on a user manual style, which can often become dry and coma inducing.

On the back of the back is a code that you can use to claim 45 days worth of access to the online version of the book from the publisher. I haven't tried this yet, but I thought 45 days is a bit stingy, feels like a slap on the face to be honest.

A lot of recipes that are ready to use in your project or at least you can get more ideas if you stuck.

The authors don't focus on explaining what all functions do in deep details so this might be hard for beginners but even they can understand what's going on in the code.

Code examples are really simple, without unneeded html or js lines so you've got clear view.
If you want to learn jQuery then this book is for you, if you know jQuery well this book is also for you just to refresh your knowledge or learn some new solutions.

Personally I like two things in this book:
1. No screenshots - so if you want to see what this code does you need to write it, great way of learning!
2. "please externalize this code to an external .js file" - this comment you will find in every code example until chapter 9 and imo it's important to remind people to not attach js code in html file.

I definitely recommend this book for beginners and advanced users!

Has many interesting, simple and easy to understand and implement functions. There are a few errors here and there, but I always think this makes you understand the subject more in the long run, as you have to debug the problems to get the examples to work in some cases.
