"The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago; the second best time is today." -- Chinese Proverb
Welcome to Week 5 of jQuery jAM, Season 3. The goal for this week is to read Chapter 5, complete the tutorials and post a link to your work in the Chapter 5 discussion area.
Chapter 5 continues Part Two: Getting Started with jQuery. It also marks the expansion 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.
For example, check out May Thet's bonus work:
~ BookBlock: A Content Flip Plugin
~ Animated Menu Using jQuery Animate Function
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. Also feel free to stay informed about jQuery jAM by following our social media updates.
