George has been working hard presenting his jQuery talks throughout the country and this week, he gave his presentation at our VBUG group in Bracknell.
This was a really fun session and I particularly liked the way that that the premise of his talk was basically split up into how jQuery is used to:
1. Find stuff
2. Do stuff with what you’ve found
There was a great overview on how to use the $ syntax to find either single or multiple elements on a page.
Once elements have been found, there were some demonstrations of ‘applying stuff’ such as accordion style effects to <DL> elements. There was also a great demo of using jQuery to set the ‘mailto:’ link on hyperlinks in order to prevent spammers from harvesting email addresses found on web pages.
George’s slides can be found here:
For anyone who missed this, George will be repeating this session down in Portsmouth later on in July.
Thanks for presenting George!
