Learn jQuery Essentials LiveLessons teaches you how to create interactive, performant websites without a framework, as well as how to query and manipulate web page content. Instructor Shaun Wassell shows you how jQuery can help you handle web page events such as clicks, typing, and more in an easy, intuitive way.

jQuery is a time-tested tool for making web pages interactive. When developers think about front-end development, they think of frameworks, like React. But for everyday use cases, learning React or Angular just to make webpages interactive would be like using a bulldozer to move a handful of rocks. The fact is that most developers arent going to be building huge, intricate web applications with millions of users, so learning an entire front-end framework can be overkill. jQuery, on the other hand, provides a straightforward way to do nearly all of these things.

Full Stack expert Shaun Wassell teaches JavaScript developers how to use jQuery to create interactive web pages.
