Web Coding Intro to jQuery

Your first exercise in jQuery will be to set up a slide show for the Acme website we created for our first project using a jQuery plugin called the Nivo Slider. Use the tutorial provided, I found it to be very thorough. Give it a shot, and then let me know your issues as they come up.

This exercise is a good way to get your feet wet with jQuery. For a while, you’ll be dependent on jQuery plugins just like this one, so it’s good exposure for you. jQuery¬†plugins all have very similar approaches to their setup and configuration. The other benefit is that you are not really writing any jQuery or Javascript here – jQuery plugins are more about following instructions. So read the tutorial carefully, and watch out for your own typos.
