May 2011 | AJAX, Java, Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce jQuery 1.4 Animation Techniques: Beginner's Guide, a new book which helps in creating both simple and complex animations using clear, step-by-step instructions, accompanied with screenshots . Written by Dan Wellman, this book walks through each of jQuery's built-in animation methods and shows in detail how each one can be used.

jQuery is an open source Javascript library which enables developers to create animations, handle events, develop Ajax applications and create plugins. Using these facilities, developers can create powerful and dynamic web pages and strike a balance between size, feature set and ease of use. Plugin codes are created to extend functionality such as Ajax helpers, webservices, datagrids, dynamic lists etc.

jQuery 1.4 Animation Techniques: Beginner's Guide will help readers implement subtle UI effects, user-triggered animations, and full-page feature animations to animate the user interface of web applications. It contains examples in a step-by-step approach beginning with simple concepts and building up to more advanced implementations.

Containing over 50 detailed examples of different types of web page animations, this book shows how to simulate animation in a variety of ways using other non-animation-specific jQuery methods, and discover how jQuery can be used to make the latest CSS3 and canvas animations work cross-browser.

Web designers and front-end developers who already have good knowledge of HTML and CSS, and some experience with jQuery will find the book an interesting and beneficial read. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information please visit: http://www.PacktPub.com/jquery-14-animation-techniques-beginners-guide/book
