jQuery is the most common JavaScript library in use today, used to easily create interactive and rich websites, and is included when creating a new web project in Visual Studio. This session will cover the basics of jQuery, expanding on more detailed topics and will include how to add, select, traverse, and modify elements on a web page. The session will also cover the jQuery UI library, how to use the various widgets, how to include the various pre-built themes, and how to create a new theme to match your existing site. We will also go over the built in Ajax functionality of jQuery and how to send and receive JSON data with using jQuery, ASP.NET MVC and the Microsoft Entity Framework.

Speaker: James Johnson

James is a three time and current Microsoft MVP in Client App Development, a past Director on the INETA North America Board, a husband and dad, and has been developing software since the early days of Laser Discs and HyperCard stacks. As the Founder and President of the Inland Empire .NET User's Group, he has fondly watched it grow from a twice-a-month, early Saturday morning group of five in 2003, to a robust and rambunctious gathering of all types and sizes of .NET developers.


James loves to dig deep into the latest cutting edge technologies - sometimes with spectacular disasters - and spread the word about the latest and greatest bits, getting people excited about developing web sites and applications on the .NET platform, and using the best tools for the job. He tries to blog as often as he can, but usually gets distracted by EF, LINQ, MVC, ASP, SQL, XML, and most other types of acronyms. To keep calm James plays a mean Djembe and tries to practice his violin. You can follow him on twitter at @latringo.
