At a certain point the methods that jQuery provides will not be enough. It is at this point that understanding how to build a jQuery plugin correctly can allow you to leverage jQuery's selecting & chaining, while at the same time giving you the freedom to extend jQuery however you see fit. In this session we will briefly touch on why jQuery plugins are needed and then spend the majority of our time actually building a plugin. The goal of the session will be to express the broad concepts central to plugin development.
