Some quick info about the redesign of this site, which went live back on September 26th.
Split in two
Before this redesign, there was just ndoherty.com, where the primary focus was on web development. With the redesign, I decided I needed two sites: ndoherty.com became devoted to my thoughts on personal growth, while ndoherty.biz now plays host to the web design goodness. No point mixing those two subjects all together on one site.
The design of both sites is exactly the same, except for some subtle color differences.
Lucky me was given the opportunity to review Learning jQuery 1.3, so that’s what I’m going to do in this post. You can buy the book via this link, and the full 12% referral commission I get from your purchase will be donated to the Humane Society of Louisiana.
But don’t go clicking and buying just because you like puppies. Read on to find out if this book is right for you, and there’s even a link to a free chapter at the bottom of this post so you can get a feel for it.
First off, a disclaimer: I’m not a hardcore programmer by any means. Functions and arguments and variable scopings make my head spin. I’m more of a jack-of-all-trades web developer who knows enough programming to hack away at some Ruby on Rails or PHP or jQuery and come away with something nice. Rarely something perfect, but nice nonetheless.
