3. jQuery Pocket Reference (2011)
by David Flanagan
David Flanagan is a popular and very active author on various programming languages and typically you’ll get a good read. The jQuery Pocket Reference may sound like a simple reference, but in fact it is a good book jQuery beginners to understand the framework and get started with some hands-on examples. For experienced programmers it is also a good chance to really understand the potential and internal workings of jQuery. Problem with jQuery is that it is so easy to use that many skilled programmers start using it and the many great plugins without really diving into the details.

Back in the day I was a major Lingo guy and, after moving up to a CD position (and with the virtual demise of Director) I fell way behind on scripting over the past few years. Now I find myself doing a lot of HTML5 and I need to get my chops together for JS and jQ.
One of the things I liked about the Director documentation was the reference guide, which was a dictionary that listed all terms imaginable plus provided multiple examples for each term. Is there an equivalent book out there for JS / jQ?
Thank you for sharing your work with us!
Hi Lars, have you update the list, as the list is out-dated.
You are right it is time for an update, thanks for letting me know!
This list is incredibly out-dated. Publication dates range from 1999 – 2009. A lot has changed since 2009!

hey thank you for the list, its really useful. i have a question i already bought the last book
can i learn java by this book or i need another one to start with. i have a not bad knowldeg in c++, so what to do????
I would recommend that you simply start coding Java if you’re already a programmer. It is not that hard and whenever there is something you are not sure of you can look it up in a book or on Google…
I think it will be good for me. thank you .
