"If I am through learning, I am through." -- John Wooden

Welcome to Week 4 of jQuery jAM, Season 3.  New participants (jAMmers) should feel free to post an Introduction at any time and begin the journey when it best suits your current work/life situation.  Season 3 will continue through August.

A Master Discussion List has been created for Season 3.  Please access it now and bookmark it for easy reference.  If you do not own your own domain name, or do not have access to one, you can obtain free hosting at 000webhost.com.

The goal for this week is to read Chapter 4, complete the tutorials and post a link to your work in the Chapter 4 discussion area.

Chapter 4 begins Part Two: Getting Started with jQuery.  It also marks the introduction of a new website designed to be a companion to our learning experience.  Please take a moment to access jQuery jAM.  Take special notice of the Tutorials­ page which features six tabs:

Galleries | Navigation­ | Forms­ | Effects­ | Lists­ | Mobile­

Each tabbed section highlights 10 tutorials that will show you how to add even more functionality to your websites.  Feel free to experiment with one tutorial per week if you would like an additional challenge -- once your weekly assignment has been completed and posted.  Share this bonus work with your fellow jAMmers and let us know how effective you found the tutorial to be in supplementing your learning experience.

Note that the tutorials at jQuery jAM website are bonus material only.  The primary focus should be to complete the assignments that are outlined in the book.

Please post feedback about the jQuery jAM website in a special discussion set up in the Discussion Area entitled jQuery jAM Website Feedback.

Let's keep jAMmin'.
