jQuery for Newbies

This talk is for anyone that wants to get a better understanding of how jQuery works and how to use it effectively in their projects. We're going to learn about:

  • What the framework does
  • How it does what it does
  • What the underlying code is doing
  • The concepts and techniques it's using to accomplish tasks
  • Ways you can use jQuery

      There was one reference to a css style sheet online that i wanted to check out. I can't find the bookmark i made. Anyone remember what I am talking about? It had a list of different styles. The person that mentioned it said he linked to it in his html.

    I've perused some jQuery docs and code before, but now I understand how it's used and it's functionality. Now that Diana got us past the steepest part of the learning curve, I'm ready to employ it in my next web app front-end. Thank you very much, Diana!

    Diana is the prettiest and smartest designer I have met. Very fun presentation. Maybe next time she can show examples of websites who are using this technology or real case studies of the before and after.

    Nice intro to JQuery.

    August 7, 2012

  • Alex S.

    This crowd was full of professionals eager to enhance their skills. The talk was a soft intro into the world of jQuery, and lightly touched on a few advanced topics such as event binding. Overall this was a good experience for my first meetup.

    Hi Everyone. Just like Lu Martinez I also was pointed to this group to be introduced to talented developers here in the Miami area. Also looking for a developer interested in working on http://myreviewline.com project. If you are interested send me a message.

      You don't need a smart phone to use PaybyPhone service: you can call the number (helps to create an account at verrus but not necessary OR simply pay with Eurometers.

      Thank You Dimitry. Thank you all.

    This event is free.

  • Josue L.

    is there a price to go to this event?

  • Lu M.

    Thanks, Diana! Saw him listed as the host (and co-organizer), but didn't see the other organizer. Objective was to send all organizers a message so my startup could offer a perk or the like as an introduction to everyone and an overall good faith gesture. I'm still working my way through the etiquette of these tech meetups. Would like to start off on the right foot. In any case, thanks, again for your response and welcoming attitude. I'll just message all three of the guys listed (on the left).

    Hi Lu! And thanks for dropping by to say hello. Happy your friend pointed you to our group. The organizer for this meetup is Josef Diago. He's pictured on the right hand column of this page. Cya!

  • Lu M.

    Just wanted to drop in a hello. A friend (who's up in NYC) pointed me to this particular group. He referenced it as "the place to find and meet the most talented developers in Miami, even though it's called Miami Design" (I paraphrased). Anyway, look forward to meeting some of you. I see the host announced for next Monday, but is there a separate organizer I can contact? Thanks, all.
