Extending jQuery

  • Jun 15, 2011 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

jQuery is powerful. It is much more powerful when you know how to extend it and write your own plugins. This meetup will involve a few tips and tricks about writing jQuery plugins, beer, snacks, hacking, and fun. 


Intro / Tips and Tricks ( < 30 min ) - Matt Null will do a basic intro to writing a jQuery plugin. He will go over closure, method chaining, and some good practices for code organization.

Hackathon / Chat / Open Floor - After the intro and short demo we can get a feel for how we want to continue. We can take the example presented in the intro a bit further and hack out some real world use cases for it. Or if anyone has any suggestions we can go a different route.

This meetup will be very open so we can all benefit from it  : D

    Matt did a thorough introduction about extending jQuery, good practices, and we even buzzed through an example on the fly. Matt delivered his subject matter with ease.

    While not to detract from Matt's presentation, we would have benefited from more participation from others in the group who RSVP'd for discussion/ideas/experiences.
