jQuery is an amazing powerhouse leveling the playing field for DOM and client side applications. However, it remains a low-level toolkit, abstracting away the hard parts without enforcing any implicit structure. This leaves a lot of developers and applications yearning for some sort of clear organization to allow for code-reuse and ease of maintenance. Enter Sammy.js. (http://code.quirkey.com/sammy) Sammy is a super lightweight jQuery plugin that allows developers to easily define 'route' based applications. With little overhead and even less of a learning curve, it adds a sprinkle of structure to client side programming. Aaron Quint, Sammy's author and maintainer will take you through the what's, why's, and how's of Sammy. Sammy's sheer simplicity will make it easy to pick up, even for beginners, but has enough tricks up its sleeve for more advanced users.
