What :  jQuery JavaScript library - Is there nothing it can't do?
Who  : Rob Anderson
Date : Mon 11 July 2011
Time : 7 PM to 9 PM
Where: Room 301, Morse Hall, UNH, Durham, NH

>From Rob: "At UNH RCC, we've been using jQuery for quite some time.
It just keeps getting better.  Not only does it handle all that messy
browser dependent stuff that nobody wants to do, but it provides CSS
like hooks for JS.  If you haven't looked lately it now does a whole
lot more."

>From the jQuery website: "jQuery is a fast and concise JavaScript
Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling,
animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is
designed to change the way that you write JavaScript."

>From Wikipedia: "jQuery is a cross-browser JavaScript library designed
to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.  jQuery's syntax is
designed to make it easier to navigate a document, select DOM
elements, create animations, handle events, and develop Ajax
applications. jQuery also provides capabilities for developers to
create plug-ins on top of the JavaScript library."
