Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video About the exercise files, part of Creating a Tooltip with jQuery.
When you download the exercise files, there's going to be three folders inside of there; folders 1, 2 and 3. For those of you who are Premium members of the lynda.com online training library, you will have access to all three of these folders. However, for those of you who are not Premium members, we do offer all of the files inside of folder 1 for free. Now folder 1 contains all the files that are going to give us a basic layout that we can work from. Now you can follow along in this course by adding a tooltip into an existing website or web page that you have, or you can use the files inside of folder 1 and work inside of here.
For Premium members, we have folder 2 which contains a source Photoshop file with all of the slices intact. So you can use this to customize some of your graphics while you are taking this course, and then lastly, inside of folder 3 is a copy of the entire final project. So you can open up the files inside of here and see how the project that you are building is tracking with what we should have as a final project. So now that we are familiar with the exercise files, next we can work on creating the project folders.
