Event Details

That's right, the jQuery Conference is no longer a coastal affair. And where else could we go after Portland besides Austin? Help us discover what amazing things come from mixing jQuery with awesome food and sun. We hope you'll attend to find out which city did it before it was cool.

We'll be at the Convention Center in downtown Austin. Accomodations will be at the Hyatt Place and Raddison Hotels. Go Longhorns!

Training: Mon Sep 9

Whether you’re just starting or have been using jQuery for years, this class is a great fit for those with questions about core jQuery concepts. You should be comfortable looking at jQuery and JavaScript code, and experience using the command line is also beneficial.

jQuery Essentials

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.

You’ll have opportunities to try what you’re learning with take-home 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.
