Most JavaScript developers live in an open source world. We predominantly use Chrome or Firefox for development, and if we needed to, we could dive into C++ in order to understand a browser’s quirks or how it works. Beyond checking out the source code, we would also need to dedicate a significant amount of time to understanding the programming language as well as learning the tools needed to build the browser. How many of us have ever gone through this trouble to understand a browser issue we are having?Developers always have the ability to peer into the source of the tools that they use, but jQuery developers have the luxury that jQuery itself uses the same comfortable JavaScript that they are using every day. While jQuery’s purpose is to let you lean wholeheartedly on the abstractions that it provides, there is a lot to learn by peering behind the curtain. Gaining an understanding of how jQuery is structured is not only a significant aid when debugging your own issues, but it can also be fun to learn how jQuery works internally! Aren’t we all just a little curious?
