jQuery is the most popular library for JavaScript. In this jQuery tutorial, the experts at Microsoft will show you how to use jQuery to add additional power and interactivity to your web pages. You’ll see how to take advantage of jQuery in your web pages, how to work with the HTML document, and even make server-side calls. Using jQuery, the JavaScript programmer has access to many of the powerful tools common to desktop and mobile developers, like building event handlers and using effects for a responsive UI, the ability to manipulate your user interface without having to refresh the entire page, and creating asynchronous calls to keep your web application responsive.
