Introduction
I'm a Senior JavaScript Engineer at Bocoup in Boston, a co-host of the yayQuery podcast, a co-organizer of TXJS, a contributor to the jQuery Cookbook from O’Reilly, and the author of the open-source jQuery Fundamentals training material. I speak on emerging JavaScript topics at numerous conferences. I live in Durham, North Carolina, with my partner, our dog Ellie, and two terrible cats.

It was more than two years ago that I first released jQuery Fundamentals, a free online guide to learning the jQuery library. Today, with the help of +Bocoup, I'm happy to announce that both the content and the site have gotten a huge face lift.

Rebecca, I recently started learning JavaScript, and jQuery, and I found your old guide most helpful. After finnishing the old guide, I browsed a few sections in your new guide - I found them even better! The hands-on tutorial style is great, but for reading, especially on a tablet PC, a single page version would be a nice addition.

Some notes about experimenting with technologies I wanted to get to know, and about learning new technologies in general.
I’m officially one-third of the way through my self-imposed month of unemployment before I join Bocoup at the beginning of May, and I’ve …

Great post: "That said: if you like JavaScript, you should get an Arduino, and you should build things with Johnny Five. Rick said it best with his initial encouragement to me: as people who make things on computer screens all day, it’s incredibly cool the first time you make an LED light up in the real world"

Some thoughts on how expectations have changed for front-end developers, as we shift from an emphasis on cross-browser trivia to an emphasis on tools that make us more efficient and productive.
I wrote a README the other day for a project that I’m hoping other developers will look at and learn from, and as I was writing it, I realized …
