Build powerful, interactive plugins to implement jQuery in the best way possible using Packt’s new book

Packt is pleased to announce 'jQuery Plugin Development Beginner's Guide', a new book which helps developers use jQuery beyond basics and deliver highly interactive content to their website viewers. Written by Giulio Bai, this book focuses on the practical aspect of design and development and also covers details of some real-life plugins.

jQuery is an open source software which enables developers to create animations, handle events, develop Ajax applications, create plugins etc. Using these facilities, developers can create powerful and dynamic web pages and strike a right balance between size, feature set and ease of use. Plugin codes are created to extend the functionality such as Ajax helpers, webservices, datagrids, dynamic lists etc.

jQuery Plugin Development Beginner's Guide will give readers a thorough knowledge towards buliding plugins as well as speeding up their processes by designing a standard development pattern. It would also providethem with a comprehensive understanding of the working and optimisation of plugins by implementing time-saving designed patterns.

Through this book, readers will learn to develop different types of add-ons, applications of jQuery effects and animations to eventually demonstrate how all of these plugins can be merged into a new, more complex and multi-purpose script. This book also covers most of the common issues encountered when working on web pages and websites.

Anyone who wants to have a better understanding of the dynamics of jQuery when plugins come into play, as well as those who are willing to push jQuery to its limits and develop awesome plugins to use in their websites will find this book an interesting and beneficial read. . This book is out now and is available with Packt. For more information please visit: -
