About This Training

Who's it for?

To get the most out of this class, some experience with both front-end web development and JavaScript and jQuery is recommended. You don't need to be a JavaScript or jQuery master to get the most from this class, but we'll assume you have some familiarity with CSS selectors and concepts like functions and variables.

If you have any questions about whether this class is a good fit, drop us a line at and we’d be happy to talk with you!

What you'll learn:

Developers attending this two-day course will receive hands-on, personalized jQuery training from the experts at Bocoup. By the end of the session, attendees will have a full grasp of the jQuery API and a deeper understanding of jQuery's internals. In addition, attendees will learn best-practice approaches to extending jQuery with custom plugins and integrating these extensions into applications.

In this two-day course, we’ll cover:

  • The jQuery Function
  • Selecting Elements
  • Manipulating the Page
  • Traversing the DOM and Chaining
  • jQuery Utility Methods
  • Handling Events and Event Delegation
  • AJAX and Deferreds

  • Extending jQuery with Plugins

This class runs from 9:30am to 5pm daily, including morning refreshments and lunch.



Be sure to bring a laptop with WiFi and a power cord, ready with a code editor and a modern browser.

We recommend one of the following text editors for Mac: Sublime Edit 2, TextMate or Coda. For Windows, we recommend: Sublime Edit 2, Notepad++ or UltraEdit. Either way, the most important thing is that you use a text editor you're comfortable with.

Also, we strongly recommend the Google Chrome browser, although Firefox (with the Firebug extension installed) will work in a pinch.
