Advancing from jQuery 2 to jQuery 3

Video Description

Advancing from jQuery 2 to jQuery 3 opens the door to new features and performance advantages, but is it right for your project? Explore new features in jQuery 3 such as Promises/A+, accelerated graphics, improved data binding, unwrap functionality, and animations.

Expert Daniel Stern takes you through live demonstrations, in-depth lessons, and a TodoMVC project implemented on both jQuery 2 and 3 libraries. To get the most out of this course, viewers should have a basic understanding of HTML, JavaScript, and jQuery. Access to a PC or MAC workstation with administrator privileges is recommended.

  • Understand jQuery 3 and when an upgrade makes sense
  • Develop practical strategies for fixing backwards compatibility issues when upgrading
  • Review how to fix previously ignored errors and remove special Ajax cases
  • Learn how to apply Promises/A+ patterns
