Tutorials Elsewhere

read 20 comments

Quite a few jQuery tutorials have been posted around the web recently. It’s always great to see more people not only learning jQuery, but also teaching it to others. Here are just a few that I think could be helpful to readers of Learning jQuery:

  • jQuery Crash Course. Nathan Smith shows he scripted an airplane seat picker script with jQuery. Beautifully designed with nice, clean code.
  • Understanding the “Chain”. Dan G. Switzer discusses how he went from an incorrect assumption to a solid understanding.
  • What is JSONP?. Remy Sharp describes the JSONP method of script-tag injection and shows how it can be done with jQuery.
  • Creating A Sliding Image Puzzle Plug-In. Ben Nadel demonstrates how he built a really cool sliding-image puzzle.

Any others out there that you have found particularly useful? Let us know in the comments.

  1. This isn’t exactly useful but I found it interesting (and not just because I did it) to see how easy it was to rewrite something with jQuery while losing about 60% of the bulk.

    Before jQuery: JavaScript utility: kilometer/mile converter.

    After jQuery: Kilometer/mile converter redux, jQuery version.

    Great list!
    The link to “Creating A Sliding Image Puzzle Plug-In” is broken.

  3. Hey Toffe,
    Thanks for the heads up on the broken link. Fixed it!

    Would you please go back to full feeds?

  5. Hi fullfeeds,

    Thanks for notifying me about this. Apparently, WordPress added a “feature” in 2.1 which cuts off feeds at the <!– more –> comment, regardless of feed preference. I just installed the full text feeds plugin, so hopefully that will bring the full feeds back.

    It appears the link to “advanced ternary conditions” is broken…

  7. Hi Nathan,

    It looks like there is a problem with Paul’s server configuration or something. I’ll ping him next time I see him on IM.

  13. @Henrik
    Thanks for your comment on my blog – I thoroughly enjoyed your articles on jQuery; well done!
