The goal of this course is to provide you with skills in jQuery – a cross-browser JavaScript library used to create dynamic web pages. The jQuery library was written to make DOM manipulation (moving things around a web page) easier for developers. It uses JavaScript to assign HTML elements these attributes. Because it is a library of predefined functions, all you need to start using jQuery is a working knowledge of the syntax and a reference for the functions available to you.

jQuery has numerous advantages over other JavaScript libraries; some of them being that it is easy to start with, is cross browser-friendly, uses shorter code, has a considerable number of available plugins, and most of all, is easy to use with Ajax. This means there is a considerable market of developers wanting to get into the world of jQuery.
