I finished my jQuery book (at right)
What a great book! It was much more than a simple functional reference for jQuery, but actually walked through practical implementations of each category of functions. I learned a lot more from this than I did by reading through Rebecca Murphey’s jQuery book. (Though to be fair, that is also a very good book, I just found its scheme of some exercise solutions that needed information not taught in the material quite frustrating).
I have already modified some code in a WordPress plugin using the knowledge I’ve gained so far, and I intend to put some of this to use in a mobile web app as well.
