I was given a copy of Learning from jQuery by Callum Macrae to review for the O’Reilly Reader Review Program.
So it followed that when I saw Learning from jQuery it jumped out at me as being completely relevant to what I wanted! Coincidence? Maybe.
Learning all the things!
I just straight into this book, reinforcing my knowledge of event listeners, constructors/prototypes and learning more about DOM traversal in the first part of this book.
Getting into it
I’m glad I ploughed on, getting to the chapter on AJAX - what I initially became interested in the book for!
This part of the book explained in enough detail for me to do exactly what I wanted, and the code examples helped greatly - not just in this chapter but throughout the book, I have to add.
Callum Macrae writes in an experienced manner and with his extensive use of code examples (and also by hosting them on Github) he teaches the reader in a clear, thorough way.
