We all know jQuery is full of helpful awesomeness. However, not all of our sites or apps need to make full use of what jQuery has to offer. So why include the extra bulk!?
Good news, since jQuery's 1.8 release you can build your own version of jQuery containing exactly what you need and nothing more. Not using ajax? Don't include it! Not using the css object, leave it out! Yup! Have your cake and eat it too.
This session would cover how you build your own version of jQuery, saving those .js kb's resulting in smaller file sizes and faster download times!
Folks, It'll be good to come in with some knowledge on the following (but fear not, they will be covered briefly as well):
- Git: http://git-scm.com/
- NodeJS: http://nodejs.org/
- Grunt: http://gruntjs.com/
And for good measure, jQuery: http://jquery.com/
