Elevate your development skills by leveraging every available ounce of jQuery
Mastering jQuery has been written not only to help maximize your skills with core functionality in the library, but also to explore some of the more intriguing ways of using the library to achieve real-world solutions that could feature on any website or online environment.
You'll start with a look at some of the more advanced ways to incorporate the library into your pages, followed by working with forms and advanced form validation using regular expressions. Next you'll move on to animating in jQuery, advanced event handling, and using jQuery effects.
