jQuery Succinctly - Free eBook (reg-ware, PDF and/or Mobi)

Syncfusion - jQuery Succinctly

jQuery Succinctly was written to express, in short-order, the concepts essential to intermediate and advanced jQuery development. Its purpose is to instill in you, the reader, practices that jQuery developers take as common knowledge. Each chapter contains concepts essential to becoming a seasoned jQuery developer.

This book is intended for two types of readers. The first is someone who has read introductory material on jQuery and is looking for the next logical step. The second type of reader is a JavaScript developer, already versed in another library, now trying to quickly learn jQuery. I crafted this book to be used as my own personal reference point for jQuery concepts. This is exactly the type of book I wish every JavaScript library had available.

Table of Contents

  1. Core jQuery
  2. Selecting
  3. Traversing
  4. Manipulation
  5. HTML Forms
  6. Events
  7. jQuery and the Web Browser
  8. Plugins
  9. Effects
  10. AJAX



I'm not afraid to admit that I don't know jack about jQuery. There I said it! Do I feel like I'm missing the bus? Yep, sure do. So this book, especially at this price, was something I grabbed right away. Now all I need to do is download it (and about a billion other things) into my brain. Instead of "Send to Kindle" I wish I had a "Send to Brain" app... :)
