AJAX with jQuery
EngineYard's Yehuda Katz to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Oct. 20-22, in San Jose, CA

jQuery is a rapidly growing, popular JavaScript library. Its powerful and modular architecture, which emphasizes a simple yet heavily extensible API, has helped it to become one of the most popular Javascript Libraries. Because of its dead-simple plugin architecture, many even begin extending jQuery's core features within hours of first using it. This talk will demonstrate how the library works, and show you why so many users are able to build fully Ajax-enabled Websites in their first day using jQuery.
