#35: Intro to jQuery 2

Starting off where we left off last time, we continue exploring the possibilities of jQuery. We revisit some of the old functions and make them do some smarter things. We explore a simple variable and an IF/ELSE statement. Then we look at the AJAX-y .load() function, the CSS function, and then finish off by writing out own custom function and going over how that layer of abstraction can help us keep our code clean. Semantics counts in JavaScript too!

    Awesome article. With a modest read about core javascript fundamentals this tutorial will help any designer drop Flash effects in…well… a flash. Thanks for the help!

    REALLY useful to see jQuery being built/edited then what the dynamic page LOOKS LIKE. Thx for the great series! Video/screencast is 10X better for this type of info than static text & pictures.

    This just reminded of a few basics. Thanks!
    I did have a rather large bug though, that the audio kept playing after the video had stopped at 6:01.

    Is there an issue with this video? Initially when I click play the timer shows the duration to be around 25 minutes, but then it changes to six minutes and only the audio continues after that six minutes.
