  • Question

  • User220959680 posted


    Have been looking for videos or tutorials on JavaScript from asp.net team. I think JavaScript is a MUST technology with ASP.NET.

    Is there a standard book that Microsoft ASP.NET team recommends or any resources available?

    Your experienced reply would be appreciated.

    You joined at kind of a bad time because its all about to change lol.

    Microsoft and jQuery announced a partnership together yesterday.

    There are some tutorials on how to get started with it straight away already kicking around the net.

    There are a bunch of posts around the web talking about this but you can start off with this one as links to the major posters on the topic:

    Thanks rtpHarry.

    Do you mean JavaScript is going to be replaced with jQuery or one of the alternative to javaScript.

    can you try to make it clear ?

    Jquery is a Javascript Library to make it easy to carry out common functions, So no it does no replace Javascript, more at http://jquery.com/.

    As for the videos, guess the ones about validators and ajax cover using javascript, take a look at the learn section above.

    A couple of good getting started books are

    Beginning JavaScript with DOM Scripting and Ajax: From Novice to Professional
    ISBN10: 1-59059-680-3

    JavaScript: The Missing Manual
    ISBN 10: 0-596-51589-8

    And a good reference book is

    JavaScript: The Definitive Guide, Fifth Edition
    ISBN 10: 0-596-10199-6

    Hope it helps, good reading.

     Check out www.jquery.com

    Its a library for Javascript which allows you to navigate the dom really easily.

    You can do a bunch of effects with it as well.

    This will allow you to blend together the microsoft javascript api (stuff to get to the asp.net bits through javascipt) with really easy dom traversal etc...


    Just means that basically if you are new to the area you want to be learning jquery, get a grounding in it, and then look into the extra bits provided by asp.net.

    Thanks Jeremy.

    Let me try to put in order

    1) JavaScript : Is a scripting Technology used for web apps Client/Server side valdiations

    2) Jquery:  is a Javascript Library to make it easy to carry out common functions

    Both do the same job. Am i right?

    Yes think of jquery as a set of pre written javascript functions to make it easy to complete common tasks.

    However I would still say it would be a very good idea to read up on Javascript a little to understand the language.

    Hope it helps, good luck.
