- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Joe Chellman and welcome to jQuery UI Widgets. This is a short companion piece to my course, jQuery for Web Designers here on Lynda.com. jQuery UI is a customizable plug in for jQuery, the world's most popular Java Script library. In this course we'll be looking at a few pieces. First, I'll show you how to install and begin using jQuery UI. We'll look at some of its user interface widgets, contrasting them with native browser widgets. jQuery UI also includes functions that can enhance elements you've already created through interactions and visual effects. We'll look at examples of each, particularly highlighting the areas where jQuery UI enhances the already powerful animation capabilities of jQuery Core.
Finally, we'll implement jQuery UI on an existing web page, enhancing it as if requested by a client. jQuery UI is one of the most popular plugins for jQuery and can help you add useful interactivity to your projects. This course will help you get comfortable with it so you can start using it right away. Let's get started with jQuery UI Widgets.
