Full Description

Embracing jQuery: User Experience Design is your complete guide to building modern dynamic websites using jQuery, the extremely popular lightweight and efficient, JavaScript library.

As you’d expect this book provides a thorough explanation of jQuery’s syntax and grammar and explains how to put together a wide range of popular effects and animations that you can use to add jQuery interactivity to your websites. The book then goes further. By combining the skills of both a web developer and a designer in writing the book we discuss not just how to build functionality but how best to employ it to create a greatly improved user experience without over-doing it and inadvertently making our applications harder, not easier, to use. The book concludes with a series of small case studies that shows all this thinking in action and leaves you with reusable templates for good code design.

What you’ll learn

  • Plan and implement a modern interface with jQuery and UXD
  • Manage changes during a project with sketching and prototyping
  • The HTML and CSS features that are key enablers to modern interactions
  • How AJAX can be applied to streamline interactions and workflows
  • Why performance is an issue that can be managed to improve the user experience
  • To build advanced interfaces which can be combined into complex web applications
