On Monday we'll introduce jQuery, a JavaScript library that makes web programming a whole lot easier.<br><br>I highly recommend reading this article on what jQuery can do:<br><a href="http://coding.smashingmagazine.com/2012/05/31/50-jquery-function-demos-for-aspiring-web-developers">http://coding.smashingmagazine.com/2012/05/31/50-jquery-function-demos-for-aspiring-web-developers</a><br>

<br>This and the following few classes might be difficult to understand if you haven't started with the last two classes. I'm not saying you shouldn't try, but we covered a number of important JavaScript basics. I suggest catching up on JavaScript by looking through the class materials and doing the assignments:<br>
