Maybe you've played with jQuery a little bit but still don't feel comfortable with it, or maybe you've only heard about it. Either way, it doesn't take long to learn enough to be dangerous. While jQuery can be intimidating at first, it's based on some very simple principles. Once you grasp those principles, your JavaScript life will never be the same.

This talk will focus mostly on jQuery itself, but I'll also hit the basics on how to make the most of jQuery in your Rails apps. I'll cover the relevant changes in Rails 3, and why you don't need Rails 3 to take advantage of those changes. By the end of this talk, you'll be easily navigating and manipulating the DOM, writing your own plugins, and of course, amazing your friends with the power and elegance of jQuery.
