jQuery is a JavaScript library that allows you to add interactivity to your websites. It provides a simple approach for selecting HTML elements that leverages the same patterns for selecting as CSS selectors. It also makes it simple to modifying the HTML elements you select, and to make changes to your HTML and CSS in response to events in the browser (click, scroll, etc). It is a small but powerful library that is used by companies like Google, Amazon and WordPress.

Pre-requisite: Because jQuery interacts with HTML elements, we suggest either having a working knowledge of HTML, or taking the HTML/CSS class, as a pre-requisite for this course.
