jQuery 1.5.1 Offline Learning Kit

 

Hey guys. Quick post for you today. So by now, chances are you’ve had an opportunity to play around with jQuery 1.5 (and 1.5.1) and you may have even checked out some of the great new Deferred features that that release came with. Today I wanted to share an offline learning pack for anyone interested in tweaking their jQuery skills offline.

What does this learning pack come with? Well, for starters it will include printable reference sheets so that whenever you’re wondering what selector or method might be best to use, you’ll have access to material that can assist with that. The pack also comes with all the 1.5.1 documentation in an easily browseable offline format (with all our API examples included) and a chrome extension allowing you to easily search the API offline while you code.

I’m also actively recommending all beginner and intermediate developers read Rebecca Murphey’s excellent jQuery Fundamentals book as it’s a wonderful starting point for increasing your knowledge and skills with both jQuery and JavaScript in general. You’ll find exercises for this included under her subfolder.

The 1.5.1 Offline Learning Kit Includes

  • Selectors Printable that explains what each selector does and how it should be used (PDF)
  • Woork jQuery 1.5 Printable Cheatsheet showing all the different methods supported by 1.5 (PDF)
  • The jQAPI 1.5 Offline Documentation pack that lets you browse the documentation and API examples on your desktop
  • jQuery 1.5 VSDocs for Visual Studio users
  • Rebecca Murphy’s excellent jQuery Fundamentals book and exercises (pack)
  • jQuery 1.5.1 Offline API Browser extension for Google Chrome
  • jQuery.sub and jQuery Deferreds Examples
  • Current 1.5.1 Release

 

 

For record purposes, if you’re interested in picking up the 1.4.3 kit from last year, I’m going to leave it up below. The main difference between the kits (other than versioning) is that this older kit also came with tutorials and sample code for building mobile applications. If you’d like to grab this pack, remember to update to 1.5 and the latest version of jQuery mobile if you want to keep playing around with the examples.

The 1.4.3 Offline Learning Kit Includes

If you’re looking to start working with jQuery Mobile, it can be nice to have a minimalist example at your fingertips to start off with. That’s why this pack also includes a jQuery Mobile demo application – one for PHP developers and another for Rails developers. I’ve noticed quite a few apps utilize these for their jQuery mobile app-setup so this should hopefully give you an idea of how to get started.

  • My 1.4.3 Selectors Printable that explains what each selector does and how it should be used (PDF)
  • The FutureColours 1.4.3 Cheatsheet showing all the different methods supported by 1.4.3 (PDF)
  • The jQAPI 1.4.3 Offline Documentation pack that lets you browse the documentation and API examples on your desktop (thanks to the guys at yayQuery and the awesome Ben Alman)
  • A Complete Developer’s jQuery 1.4.3 Mobile Demo Application (PHP courtesy of DevGrow, Rails courtesy Fuel)
  • Rebecca Murphy’s excellent jQuery Fundamentals book and exercises (PDF)
  • 1.4.3 and our 1.4.4 Release Candidate Preview

 

 

Feel free to share the kit or any ideas you may have for what else should be included in it. Speak soon! – Addy.

    • Hi Arun. I would recommend starting off with Rebecca's book in the pack if you're starting from scratch as it'll help you pick up some javascript fundamentals before you dive into jQuery. So the short answer is yes :)
