Get started with jQuery library from its own creators !!!

Hi Folks,

As you know, MS announced that jQuery is a built-in library in VS 2008 SP1 for ASP.NET Developers.

I recommend for all developers, to see the series of jQuery Library videos from its own creator : John Resig and his team, this series of videos help you to understand the jQuery library features,jQuery UI and other important notes for advanced developers.

I enjoyed watching these series, and i suggest all of you to understand and start using jQuery library in your .NET Projects and solutions.

After you finish this series, i like to share with you these posts for integrating ASP.NET with jQuery library:

1) ASP.NET with jQuery: Scott hanselman:

2) ASP.NET with jQuery:

Hope this helps.
