Please try again later. This book provides a deep and thorough dive into the world of jQuery. For someone who has been hacking together things with the jQuery framework for a long while, it was refreshing to have some explanations and simple illustrations that brought smshing together. I like that this book doesn’t read like documentation – thought docs have their place – the way in which everything is explained is conversational, approachable and well stated. I came away with all my previous experiences hacking the jQuery framework now making sense, realizing places where I’ve done things incorrectly and feeling pretty pumped for my next project.

Smashing jQuery is a great introduction to those new to the framework and an exceptional review for those who’ve jale working with it for a while. Ultimately it’s the way in which the material is presented that makes it so useful. Rutter’s conversational approach makes everything digestible and useful because that key component of understanding is so easily achieved.

Then make it cooler, more useful and functional with jQuery. One person found this helpful.

Great content, lousy editing. LOVE the content, hate the errors.

I guess the good news is that the errors really made me think. So here’s a question: There is rutterr Smashing CSS! Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

Besides all the nice things I have heard and read about jQuery, I didn’t have a clue about any of its capabilities. This book got me up to speed fairly quickly, but I reckon this is also partly due to the flat smasihng curve inherent to jQuery.

After reading through the first three chapters I’ve come to realize how amazingly powerful this JavaScript library really is.

Smashing jQuery by Jake Rutter

This book is very clear and useful for the new commers to jQuery. Now i am developing jQuery functions of my own and I am loving it. The full credit goes to the author Mr. I am very happy to say that i am your fan now: Applauds for you mate, you did Great work!! I was thinking for some time should i write a review for Jake Rutter’ book on jQuery.

Smashing JQuery : Jake Rutter :

The reason for my thinking was that some of the content in the book is really great and i read a few jQuery booksbut at the same time there were errors rutrer out all the time, so you must go back and forth the downloaded code and the book itself for examples to work. But in the end they do work, it is just that the code in the examples doesn’t suffer from typos, as the code in the book does.

But putting errors aside, i really rutger Jake Rutter wrote a fine jQuery primer, with some very nice examples. I give the book 4 stars, which i think iake really rutteer. Having recently completed one of Smashing Magazine’s other titles, I had high hopes for this title.

While some of the information in the book is useful, it is a far cry from most of the other jQuery titles available and the section on the jQueryUI is practically non-existent. Aside from a brief explanation of the ThemeRoller, the examples of the UI widgets that are there merely tell you how to connect them jqueery an element, with absolutely no explanation of their functionality.


Perhaps the worst thing about this title, however, is the sheer amount of errata the book has to offer. Nearly every other page has a mistake in syntax that quickly becomes confusing and leaves the reader spending more time sorting out the errors than they do actually reading the book. Rjtter example includes quotation marks in the syntax in one paragraph, which is suddenly missing in the next. Another, and perhaps the most ridiculous, are references in the jQuery code to class names that don’t even exist in the mark-up.

To top this all off, there is absolutely no support on the book’s website to report said errata.

After all of this nonsense I tossed the book into the garage sale pile and moved on to greener pastures. It came in time and price was perfect. This book did a great job of getting me going with JQuery. It by no means is an end all be all book. It contains errors, so try not to copy the examples directly. Instead, take a step back and learn from what he is showing you and understand the concepts.

Once you’re finished with this book, you’ll be able to write JQuery and make use of it in your projects. This book works as a great reference for different examples and methods. I still use jquefy from time to time to see how something needs to be done. The colors and pictures kept me interested since I have ADD when it comes to reading.

I recommend this book for anyone trying to learn javascript frameworks: See all 27 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.
