Evented Programming with jQuery

You love jQuery because it lets you handle browser events quickly and effectively. What if you could use that same abstraction for higher-level widgets? Yehuda walks you through building a tabs widget using the same evented style of programming that you already use in day-to-day jQuery code. Also, learn how to organize your evented jQuery code to avoid a single tangled mass of JavaScript code.

Behind the 14 Days of jQuery

We hope you’ve been enjoying the 14 Days of jQuery thus far! We’ve really enjoyed putting it together and are surprised that we’re nearly done. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank the jQuery team members that made this event possible.

The team met in Washington, D.C. on January 13th to record all the videos and podcasts for the 14 Days of jQuery, and push out the jQuery 1.4 release. We were graciously hosted by AOL at their headquarters, where we met many happy users of jQuery.
