Query is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.

The above statement is from the official jQuery website.  This course will try to show you how true this statement is.  With jQuery, it only take a single day to turn the average javascript hobbyist into a very powerful developer capable of developing mind blowing user interfaces and AJAX application.

During this training, we will first focus on the jQuery object and on the jQuery selector API.  We will then traverse and manipulate the DOM in various ways before developing a full scale Ajax multiple file uploader application!
