Introduction to JavaScript & jQuery

by Karl Swedberg

Karl Swedberg, author of Learning jQuery and the jQuery API Documentation (api.jquery.com), teaches you what you need to know about the JavaScript language before diving into jQuery; including closures, anonymous functions, and implicit versus explicit iteration. If you missed out on a formal education on pure JavaScript, this workshop will help get you up to speed on the language.
