Название: jQuery in action
Автор: Bibeault B.
One of your authors is a grizzled veteran whose involvement in programming
dates back to when FORTRAN was the bomb, and the other is an enthusiastic
domain expert, savvy beyond his years, who’s barely ever known a world without
an Internet. How did two people with such disparate backgrounds come
together to work on a joint project?
The answer is, obviously, jQuery.
The paths by which we came together over our affection for this most useful
of client-side tools are as different as night and day.
I (Bear) first heard of jQuery while I was working on Ajax in Practice. Near
the end of the creation cycle of a book is a whirlwind phase known as the copyedit
when the chapters are reviewed for grammatical correctness and clarity
(among other things) by the copyeditor and for technical correctness by the
technical editor. At least for me, this is the most frenetic and stressful time in
the writing of a book, and the last thing I want to hear is “you really should
add a completely new section.”
One of the chapters I contributed to Ajax in Practice surveys a number of
Ajax-enabling client-side libraries, one of which I was already quite familiar
with (Prototype) and others (the Dojo Toolkit and DWR) on which I had to
come up to speed pretty quickly.
