Event Details

We're taking this show on the road!

Our first stop: Atlanta, on September 27, where we’ll have Ben Alman and Rebecca Murphey helping you “level up” your jQuery knowledge with the one-day “jQuery Essentials” training. It’s an immersive look at patterns and techniques you can use to improve your code, your site, and your development experience. We’ll cover topics such as:

  • Best Practices How to avoid common performance and maintainability pitfalls.
  • Debugging How to figure out what’s wrong when your code isn’t behaving as expected.
  • Event Delegation How it works and when to use it.
  • Deferreds and Promises How to use the functionality introduced in jQuery 1.5 to tame asynchronous code.
  • Templates How to efficiently update your page using only raw data from the server.
  • Code Organization How to keep your code from turning into a tangled mess.

Throughout the day, you’ll have opportunities to try what you’re learning via hands-on exercises. By the end of the day, you’ll be ready to tackle front-end development challenges with a better understanding of both JavaScript and the jQuery library.


Attendees should bring a laptop with WiFi and a power cord, ready with a code editor and and browser. We strongly recommend the Google Chrome browser. 

We recommend one of the following text editors: TextMate, MacVim, Coda, or Sublime Text 2 for Mac; and E TextEditor, Notepad++, UltraEdit, or Sublime Text 2 for Windows. The most important thing is that you use a text editor you're comfortable with.
