Better interaction, design, and web development with simple JavaScript techniques


An introduction to jQuery that requires minimal programming experienceDetailed solutions to specific client-side problemsRevised and updated version of this popular jQuery book

In Detail

To build interesting, interactive sites, developers are turning to JavaScript libraries such as jQuery to automate common tasks and simplify complicated ones. Because many web developers have more experience with HTML and CSS than with JavaScript, the library’s design lends itself to a quick start for designers with little programming experience. Experienced programmers will also be aided by its conceptual consistency.

LearningjQuery – Fourth Edition is revised and updated version of jQuery. You will learn the basics of jQuery for adding interactions and animations to your pages. Even if previous attempts at writing JavaScript have left you baffled, this book will guide you past the pitfalls associated with AJAX, events, effects, and advanced JavaScript language features.

Starting with an introduction to jQuery, you will first be shown how to write a functioning jQuery program in just three lines of code. Learn how to add impact to your actions through a set of simple visual effects and to create, copy, reassemble, and embellish content using jQuery’s DOM modification methods. The book will take you through many detailed, real-world examples, and even equip you to extend the jQuery library itself with your own plug-ins.

What you will learn from this book

Create interactive elements for your web designsLearn how to create the best user interface for your web applicationsUse selectors in a variety of ways to get anything you want from a pageMake things happen on your webpages with eventsAdd flair to your actions with a variety of animation effectsDiscover the new features available in jQuery in this third update of this popular jQuery book


We will step through each of the core concepts of the jQuery library, building an overall picture of its capabilities. Once you have thoroughly covered the basics, the book returns to each concept to cover more advanced examples and techniques.

Who this book is written for

This book is for web designers who want to create interactive elements for their designs, and for developers who want to create the best user interface for their web applications. Basic JavaScript programming and knowledge of HTML and CSS is required. No knowledge of jQuery is assumed, nor is experience with any other JavaScript libraries.

A problem-solving approach to programming with Python.

The Practice of Computing Using Python introduces CS1 students (majors and non-majors) to computational thinking using Python.¿ With data-manipulation as a theme, readers quickly see the value in what they’re learning and leave the course with a set of immediately useful computational skills that can be applied to problems they encounter in future pursuits.¿ The book takes an “object-use-first” approach–writing classes is covered only after students have mastered using objects.

This edition is available with MyProgrammingLab, an innovative online homework and assessment tool. Through the power of practice and immediate personalized feedback, MyProgrammingLab helps students fully grasp the logic, semantics, and syntax of programming.
