The Beginners Guide to jQuery Plugins

I was recently given the opportunity to read over the new book “jQuery Plugin Development Beginners Guide” by Giulio Bai, and I must admit this is a must have guide! This book is perfect for beginners to gather not only a solid foundation of jQuery plugin concepts, but also best practices. The book it’s self is aimed at teaching the absolute basics jquery plugin development such as:

  • What is jQuery
  • Plugin Basics
  • Your First Plugin

What makes this book so great is how the “basics and best practices” are covered early on, while a series of introductions to actual real world plugin topics are also covered later on, such as:

  • Media Plugins
    • Image Plugins
    • Video Plugins
    • Audio Plugins
  • Forms and Validation Plugins
  • UI Plugins

What also makes this book top notch is that after each chapter, they tend to pose a optional 5 to 10 question quiz to help with all learning types. Now, as if that was not enough, this book also covers other topics such as:

  • Top jQuery Plugins
  • Reference and bibliography
  • Blogs to follow
  • Browsers: compatibility, comparisons, and plugins

If your looking to dive head first into the world of jquery plugin development, then this the must have guide that all developers should carry with them. I recommend you grab this great book if your looking to invest into anything jQuery right now and enjoy it as much as I have these past weeks.
