Advance Praise for Head First jQuery

“jQuery makes doing amazing things with JavaScript so easy it feels like cheating. This book demonstrates how to solve real-world problems quickly. As a bonus, you’ll learn key aspects of JavaScript, how to set up a web development environment, and some PHP/MySQL. This is a solid book.”

Jim Doran, software engineer at Johns Hopkins University

“Unlike those abstruse programming books filled with technical jargon, Head First jQuery guides beginners through the steps to create their first jQuery pages in a fun and understandable way.”

Lindsey Skouras, attorney and self-taught programmer

“Ryan Benedetti and Ronan Cranley have taken a potentially intimidating stew of technologies (jQuery, DOM, Ajax, HTML5, CSS) and broken them down into approachable concepts that actually make learning the material fun.”

Bill Mietelski, software engineer

“JavaScript has reemerged as a programming language of some merit due in no small part to a collection of best-of-breed add-on libraries, of which jQuery is a key player. Head First jQuery provides the modern web developer with a focused heads-up and hands-on treatment to this key JavaScript technology.”

Paul Barry, author and lecturer on computing at the Institute of Technology, Carlow
