I haven’t written any line of code and that’s bad as i always learn with the trial and error method.
Unfortunately as it happened with CSS i haven’t learned anything (almost) from W3C.What i have learned came from here!
I have in my shopping basket "Learning jQuery 1.3" (the new edition of the book Chris is recommending) ready to ship but i am holding off since i have read from the book description that you need to have JS knowledge + the fact that jQuery is a JS library.
Any recommendations/thoughts etc are welcomed.May 24, 2009 at 9:39 pm #58111
Now that I’ve answered your question, I should say that now days you may not even need a book. Since you’ve got a good hold on the basics, I would recommend working your way through jQuery and it’s features; there’s almost no need to learn anything on your own if jQuery already does it (Prototype JS is also a good alternative). The jQuery website is good enough to not need a book, but there are books on it out there.
IMO, you can’t go wrong with a Sitepoint publication.
