Praise for the First Edition

This book has successfully taken the confusion and mystery out of what jQuery is all about and helped me to finally get a handle on javascript/jQuery.

…jQuery for Designers is a friendly, plainspoken tutorial on how to use some simple jQuery plugins – in short, little code-laden gadgets programmed by someone else and available for free – in a web page, and how to customize them to your liking. A great book for freelance web designers who are asked to take care of the programming as well as the graphics, even if you hate coding as much as I do. Keep this book by your side and you’ll be able to design slide shows, photo galleries, dropdown menus, navigation tags, you name it. All very easy to follow and non-scary. A worthwhile investment!

For designers who aren’t familiar with JavaScript, never mind jQuery, the book provides an excellent, gentle introduction to what JavaScript is, how it interacts with CSS and HTML, and what you can do with it….As a guide to jQuery for designers, jQuery for Designers Beginner’s Guide is a great introduction, with plenty of recipes for common tasks a web designer might need jQuery to do to enhance a website.
