I bet most of you would have heard about jQuery and if you havent then you “should” learn jQuery asap. Its a boon on the web developers.

To term it simply, “jQuery is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.”

Now that was right from the horse’s mouth. Go over and get the hang of it and add some zing to your web applications the easy way.

Though jQuery makes some daunting tasks very easy, it still requires some time to get used to and make some nice works out of it. Keeping the “rapid development” factor in mind, a team at Microsoft have come up with a Design tool to create jQuery scripts Interactively called Glimmer.

Glimmer allows you to easily create interactive experiences like rotating photo-galleries/mastheads, drop-down navigation, hover effects, or custom animations.

I will soon be doing a round up and some tuts and examples on it. Hang On.

For other who are impatient, you can learn it right away.
