For the first session of 2012, we are getting back to fundamentals to present what we hope will be the first in a series of jQuery best practice sessions. Whether you are new to jQuery or simply want to address some bad habits, then this is for you.
Our speaker for the evening will be Sky Apperley. Sky is a freelance front-end developer and iPhone app developer. His talk will be useful to beginners and intermediate jQuery users alike. It will include some useful practices and tips for using the browser's developer tools and debug console, using a Content Delivery Network, testing new code, optimising jQuery selectors and avoiding unnecessary code duplication.
Towards the end of this session, we are hoping to get a new regular slot off the ground, 'Plugin Roundabout' - a condensed version of our "Favourite jQuery Plugin" session, where the group shared information about favourite plugins. So do come along and bring your discoveries.
