Strangely I posted some book updates last week and forgot to mention that Professional jQuery has been out for a couple of weeks now.. I haven’t seen it yet, but I like to know that it’s out there. Looking back on my work, I think it’s actually pretty good. Normally my own writing makes me cringe, but this stuff is still pretty good.
For those of you keeping track, my contribution was Chapters 10-14. Cesar Otero basically set up the basics of jQuery, and then I came along and talked about fancy stuff, like code optimization (Chapter 10: Writing Effective jQuery Code, Chapter 11: jQuery Template, and Chapter 13: Advanced Asynchronous Programming with jQuery Deferred,) plugin development (Chapter 12: Writing jQuery Plugins) and unit testing (Chapter 14: Unit Testing with QUnit.)
