DOM Scripting and Ajax Using jQuery
Accelebrate's DOM Scripting and Ajax Using jQuery training teaches attendees how to use the freely-available jQuery library to simplify nearly any client-side scripting task. Attendees will learn how to write efficient jQuery selectors to round up sets of DOM elements, how to use the framework's many methods to manipulate DOM elements, how to use the jQuery event API to set up event listeners and event delegation, how to manage Ajax requests with jQuery and how to extend jQuery with custom filters and methods.
Note: This course can be taught using jQuery 2.x or 1.x.
