jQuery-free JavaScript

by Elijah Manor

Do you need jQuery? Let's look at some common jQuery code snippets and rewrite them with native browser APIs or micro-libraries.

What you'll learn

In this course we will explain when it's appropriate to use jQuery and when it may not be. If you need jQuery then we will look at making a custom build that includes only the parts you need. Most of this course is focused on converting common jQuery snippets to either use native browser APIs or utilize a popular micro-library.
