MKE Web Pros: Beyond jQuery

jQuery has served developers well for many years, and helped us through times when cross-browser web development was filled with land mines and inconsistencies. But this is not a reality anymore. The web API is consistent, stable, well-defined, and much more elegant than it used to be. In fact, its feature set and elegance even surpasses jQuery in some instances. I used to be anchored to this library myself, but eventually realized that this was a mistake for someone in my position. And once I made this realization, I decided to immerse myself in vanilla JS and the web API, and I never looked back. I hope today to help you to see the power and expressiveness of the web API before you reach for an abstraction like jQuery. You might find that everything you need is built into the browser itself.

Speaker Ray Nicholus is a full-stack web developer, author, and speaker employed by Widen and dedicated to the open source software movement.
