Creating jQuery Plugins


We use jQuery every day to add useful and fun interactivity and other goodies to our web projects. We also use plugins from around the internet to do more advanced things we couldn't necessarily do ourselves. In this workshop, we'll look at how to take existing things we've done and converting them into plugins. It's pretty easy to do, and makes our work more portable to other projects, even shareable with others!
