Hi JavaScriptLA fans, our August meetup brings jQuery talk to the plate. jQuery was a wonderful tool that paved over the irregularities of browsers and offered a simple interface for making very powerful applications. Today with evergreen browsers and modern JavaScript, we no longer need this crutch. Let’s look at our favorite jQuery techniques like $.ajax() and $(…).click() and $(…).addClass() and compare this to the code we’d write in modern JavaScript. Sprinkled in are great ES6 techniques like rest and spread, promises and fetch. Challenge yourself on your next project to see if you can run in a post-jQuery world. About the Presenter: Rob Richardson is a software craftsman building web properties in ASP.NET and Node, Angular and React. He’s a Microsoft MVP, published author, frequent speaker at conferences, user groups, and community events, and a diligent teacher and student of high quality software development. You can find this and other talks on his blog at and follow him on twitter at @rob_rich.
