The idea behind these videos is that in a relatively short space of time (5 minutes all the way up to 30), a developer will teach you about a popular tool or project they’re working on and explain both the benefits of it and how you can get started with it in next to no time.
I really want to encourage the community (especially the beginner and intermediate groups) to start using modern tools in their projects and this seems like another useful way to help lower the barrier of entry on that.
To that end, I’ve been speaking to developers in over 30 well known projects over the past few months and we’re going to do our best to keep the flow of videos for MJD as constant as possible. Do let us know if they help!
Our first contribution comes from Boris Moore, a Microsoft developer who is also the lead dev on the jQuery Templating plugin.
