Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Richard Monson‑Haefel, and welcome to my course, Handling Form Events Using jQuery. I'm a software engineer with 26 years of experience in distributed computing and have been working in remote and web development since 1994. Did you know that jQuery is the most popular JavaScript library today? According to a recent survey, 77.6% of all websites use jQuery. There's even a jQuery‑based Commodore 64 emulator. In this course, you'll learn how to process form events using jQuery with HTML forms. Some of the major topics we'll cover include processing browser events, keyboard events, focus events, and blur events to name a few. We'll also cover the use of jQuery autocomplete component, the use of AJAX to access web services, and learn a little bit about data binding. By the end of this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge of jQuery needed to create powerful and sophisticated HTML forms that go well beyond the limits of plain HTML. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with JavaScript ES6 and jQuery fundamentals. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into other courses on more advanced subjects such as jQuery UI, customizing jQuery, and even authoring jQuery plugins. You'll also be ready to learn more about using jQuery with other frameworks, such as Angular, Knockout, and ReactJS. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about jQuery and forms with Handling Form Events Using jQuery, at Pluralsight.
