In its short history, jQuery has revolutionized front-end web development, making it faster, easier, and more rewarding to write JavaScript – allowing easier selection and manipulation of HTML elements, and ensuring that scripts work across the ever increasing landscape of browsers and operating systems.

Nate Haug and Jeff Robbins show many hands-on examples demonstrating how to use jQuery's simple syntax to choose and manipulate HTML elements, traverse the document object model (DOM), and to attach event handlers which can react to user interaction with the page.

In this video, Jeff and Nate introduce themselves and the agenda for this series, including Selectors, Effects, and AJAX.
