Praise for jQuery, jQuery UI, and jQuery Mobile
“de Jonge and Dutson’s cookbook approach to jQuery, jQuery UI, and jQuery Mobile teaches how to create sophisticated projects quickly, removing all the guesswork. They really make jQuery seem effortless!”
—Joseph Annuzzi, Jr., Web architect, PeerDynamic.com
“This book is great for all aspects of jQuery development; it has it all, from a great UI section down to the most current tech, which is mobile. I found myself referencing this book numerous times for projects I am currently working on.
“This book will be excellent for anyone who is eager to learn more about jQuery and what the capabilities are. The authors put the learning in terms that anyone can understand and build from.”
—Erik Levanger, UI UX engineer
“I have often said that when it comes to jQuery, half the battle is just being familiar with the types of things it is capable of doing. Having a good foundation can easily help you bridge the gap between ‘This is going to be complicated’ and ‘I can do that with jQuery!’ Like any good recipe book, this book includes ready-to-use code samples that demonstrate basic to advanced techniques. In addition to the major areas noted in the book title, there are references on how to customize the jQuery UI features to meet your needs and bonus sections about creating and using plugins. I also really appreciate the authors’ insights regarding performance issues and best practices. Lastly, speaking as someone with no previous jQuery Mobile experience, this book provides solid examples to get you up and running fast. Overall, this book will help to greatly expand the skills in your jQuery arsenal.”
—Ryan Minnick, software developer, Verizon Wireless
“The ultimate cookbook for anyone using jQuery, jQuery UI, or jQuery Mobile.”
—Stretch Nate, Web applications developer, HealthPlan Services
—Jacob Seidelin, Web developer, Nihilogic

Like having a book of strictly examples. Too much blah-blah-blah in computer books with examples that don't work anyway. This is useful and much better.Published on February 17, 2013 by Nitr
