Event Description

Get frustrated by cross-browser incompatibility? Hate to develop application using JavaScript? jQuery is a powerful JavaScript library that can enhance your websites regardless of your background. jQuery is fast, lean, simple and hugely expandable, enabling you to build compelling web applications quickly and easily. In this session, we will start with a quick introduction of jQuery, illustrate what’s so good about jQuery, and demonstrate step by step how to develop jQuery Ajax application efficiently with database, web services, OData, NetFlix and ASP.NET MVC. Microsoft is now shipping, supporting, and contributing to jQuery, with ASP.NET and Visual Studio. New features which will be available in the next release of jQuery such as globalization, templating and data-linking will be introduced in the session as well.

We are going to have four amazing speakers Yehuda Katz, Jonathan Sharp, Damian Edwards and Bruno Terkaly, take us from a basic overview of jQuery, to how to get started, how to best use it, to what to expect from this most-popular JavaScript framework of today.

Don’t care about JavaScript? Don’t think this is for you? Think again, because with HTML5 the importance of client-side programming is going to explode and this is your chance to keep your skills relevant with the demands of tomorrow!
