Dan is an electrical and computer engineer located in Ann Arbor Michigan and holds a BSEE degree from the University of Michigan along with MSEE and MBA degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Dan has been using jQuery for the last three years and generally hacking the web since before Al Gore created it.
This course will use Rebecca Murphey's open source ebook "jQuery Fundamentals"  and Ben Nadel's video series entitled "An Intensive Exploration of jQuery"  as our primary learning resources. For examples, demos and assignments we will use collaborative tools such as jsfiddle  and FireFox browser add-ons such as FireBug  and FireBug extensions . Rather than extensively covering every aspect of the jQuery API and plugins, the course will have a emphasis on learning jQuery in a participatory environment using jQuery community resources and free tools such as jsfiddle and FireBug. Although the majority of the course communications will take place through group email, we will attempt to use a conferencing tool such as TalkShoe  (participate via dial in or client software) to hold a few live conferences.
 jQuery Fundamentals by Rebecca Murphey
 An Intensive Exploration Of jQuery by Ben Nadel
 Firebug Extensions
The primary objective of the course is to learn basic jQuery usage in a variety of contexts and to introduce the participants to the wealth of jQuery community resources that will allow them to continue learning and using jQuery after the course concludes. The secondary objective of the course is to further grow and contribute to the participatory learning process. As the facilitator of the course I fully expect to learn as much as the other participants and I hope some of the participants will be encouraged to facilitate future courses in the School of WebCraft.
