Last Wednesday John Resig stopped by to chat about jQuery. The room was packed so we had to join a second room. It was a pretty engaging presentation – loved it.

A couple of interesting links:

  1. jQuery UI
  2. jQuery Themes – Themeroller
  3. Advanced jQuery on John’s blog
  4. jQuery in Action book by Bear Bibeault and Yehuda Katz with source code examples

And finally loved the Google trends chart of the adoption rates of all the major java script libraries that John mentioned (link is under the picture):

Posted by Igor Moochnick on 02/03/2009

Yesterday got new Oslo bits (January CTP) – the upgrade went surprisingly smooth. Now I’m hands deep in this new pile of bits. Giving the credit that it’s still CTP – I like the progress so far. Can’t wait to see the release version.
