jQuery's popularity is largely due to its ease of use and elegant API. jQuery makes common tasks dead simple while making difficult and less common tasks much easier than they would normally be. In this talk, we'll show how to build complex, stateful widgets with the same ease of use as jQuery core. We'll cover the philosophies behind jQuery and how to apply them when building reusable widgets. By the end you'll know how to make the right decisions when designing your widget's API and how to use jQuery UI's widget factory to implement an extensible widget.
