19 - jQuery in Action, 2nd Ed.

Posted on

This week we talked with Yehuda Katz and Bear Bibeault about the upcoming second edition of the popular jQuery in Action book from Manning.

Host: Ralph Whitbeck & Elijah Manor.


This week we talked with Bear Bibeault (archived) and Yahuda Katz (archived), authors of the upcoming book "jQuery in Action: Second Edition". We discussed the intended audience of the book, how the chapters are laid out, the differences between the 1st and the 2nd editions, and much more.

jQuery in Action: Second Edition (archived)

We’ve arranged with Bear and Yehuda’s publisher, Manning Publications, to give our listeners 35% off any version of jQuery in Action, 2nd Edition (ebook or print book). Go to www.manning.com, put the book in your cart, and at checkout, enter the promotional code jqpod to redeem the offer. The code is good until June 1, 2010.


Bay Area jQuery Conference 2010

This weeks podcast is brought to you by the Bay Area jQuery Conference 2010. Have you got your tickets to this amazing event yet? Would your company be interested in sponsoring the conference? Don’t wait, this event is sure to sell out fast!

Ralph’s Plugin of the week

The jQuery UI Growl is a plugin that uses the jQuery UI Modal Widget to simulate the Mac Growl notification effect. This plugin takes advantage of the jQuery Theme Roller, so you can easily change the look and feel of the plugin.

Elijah mentioned that you may also want to take a look at the Pines Notify jQuery Plugin, which also has jQuery Theme Roller support. In addition you can always check out the classic jGrowl jQuery Plugin.

Elijah’s Tutorial of the week

We briefly covered the topic of the jQuery Templating Proposal a couple of weeks ago, but this past week a short screencast was posted on Nettuts+ by Andrew Burgess entitled Quick Tip: An Introduction to jQuery Templating. In the short 5 minute screencast Andrew shows how to render the template, how to pass options, and how to reference the template index value. It is important to note that the content covered is currently only a proposal and the final Templating piece may be different from what is shown.
