If you haven’t been following the progress of Rob Conery and James Avery’s new venture, TekPub, you’ve been missing out on some great instructional videos. I especially like that they trend slightly Alt.NET, giving you more balanced information than is sometimes available from “official” .NET screencasts.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been working with James to record a series of episodes for TekPub myself: Mastering jQuery.
Today, the first video in that series is available: Getting Started with jQuery.
In this episode we cover the basics of getting started with jQuery. We start with a basic HTML page and show how to include jQuery, how to write your first code, and explain all of the moving pieces and how they work.
If you’ve been following my site and working with jQuery already, the first episode may sound elementary, but there’s going to be something for everyone before the series is finished. By the third episode, we’re already into topics like making AJAX calls to MVC controller actions and progressively enhancing an entry form with the jQuery form plugin.
I hope you’ll head over to TekPub, and have a look for yourself.
