Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Chris B. Behrens, and welcome to my course, jQuery: The Big Picture. JQuery is one of the most widely used JavaScript frameworks in the world. When jQuery came out, it made a critical contribution to how JavaScript is used and solved some of the biggest problems holding developers back. Some of the major topics that we will cover include what jQuery is and where it came from. I'll look at jQuery's selector model and jQuery UI and jQuery plugins. By the end of this course, you will have a good grasp on where jQuery fits in your toolbox and have the knowledge needed to make technology choices with it. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with JavaScript and web development in general. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into advanced jQuery courses about jQuery development, jQuery UI development, and jQuery plugin development. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn the story of jQuery with the jQuery: The Big Picture course, at Pluralsight.
