Matt will provide an overview of JQuery basics including selectors, DOM interaction, events and asynchronous calls.

He will then build on the basics demonstrating plugin development and showing examples of existing plugins like jQuery Templates, TimeAgo, and Placeholder that help you “write less, do more”.

Lastly, Troy will demonstrate how to create a simple reusable widget using jQuery UI.
