This thursday, at [Waterloo Region Web Design & Technology Group][a_100408145732] ([#kwdm][a_100408145938] on Twitter), I had the opportunity to give an introductory look at jQuery and some of it basic notions. Here is what I presented. If you wish to follow along, you can [download the source code][a_100408091055] for this particular demonstration.
Please keep in mind that in no way is this intended to be instructional, nor are these real world examples. This is merely to quickly illustrate a series of features and functions to give a gist of how quickly one might pick up jQuery.
Also note that if you plan on streaming this video, you may find the subtitles a little out of sync. If you want the truest experience you should be able to download the video from [Vimeo][a_100408131723].
