jquery-map-thumbDuring the last week, I’ve been pretty stuck into twitter and have come across a bunch of handy resources, especially where jQuery is concerned, so when Vince asked me to write up a little article, I thought I’d go through all the resources I’ve tweeted or retweeted the last few days, and get things all sorted into a cohesive group, that hopefully you people would be able to find useful.

So, let’s get started!

I thought it’d be nice to kick it off with an interview with John Resig, the creator of the jQuery Javascript Library.

As well known as jQuery is, I’m sure there are many of you who, like me, are still getting our feet wet and so I thought the logical place to start would be with something for the noobee :

Getting Into It..

jQuery does such a great job of making things easy and less complicated, and especially for us ‘front-end’ developers, the css-similarities make it even easier. I’ve tried to break the rest of the links and resources up into bits that would make logical sense, so without further ado, here’s the rest of ‘em! Tuck in guys! :)


Sliders, Lightboxes & Galleries

jQuery Galleries / Sites with excellent jQuery

Great jQuery Lists

Social Networking with jQuery

jQuery Plugins

A great little article on why you should create a jQuery Plugin, with a nice few resources at the end as well.

jQuery U.I.

jQuery 1.3


Ajax and jQuery

Cheat Sheet for jQuery

Tips, Tricks & Code Snippets

Menus/Navigation with jQuery

UI Tricks & Tips


Flash & Other Multi-media

jQuery & .Net

jquery & Shopping Carts

And that about sums it up…

Thank you for taking the time to go through these jQuery links and resources! I hope you have found them handy and helpful! If you have any more you’d like to share please feel free to do so in the comments!

    Salute to you, Cam. I’ve currently studying the usage of Jquery and implementing it into my client web sites. Your post here will be my major reference for Jquery. I prefer short cuts rather than going into the lengthy explanations.
