AJAXWorld's Popular jQuery Session Took Place on Third Day of the Conference

Demonstrated how to build AJAX-enabled websites

At AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Yehuda Katz presented a lively session on AJAX with jQuery. jQuery is a rapidly growing, popular JavaScript library. Its powerful and modular architecture, which emphasizes a simple yet heavily extensible API, has helped it to become one of the most popular JavaScript Libraries. Because of its dead-simple plugin architecture, many even begin extending jQuery's core features within hours after first using it. This talk demonstrated how the library works, and showed why so many users are able to build fully AJAX-enabled websites on their first day using jQuery.
