I am currently in Wellington attending Webstock, a 5 day Web workshop and conference extravaganza held in the Wellington Town Hall. I have just emerged from the JQuery workshop enthused and ready to learn more. That’s one of the plus’s in attending these types of workshops, its not so much about the skills you learn on the day but the enthusiasm to find out more, the opening up of eyes to the possibilities, its looking at what you have and knowing that you can make it better.
In February 2009 Netcraft, a organisation that provides web server and web hosting market-share analysis, estimated that there were around 230,000,000 websites on the internet. Almost 30% of those use JQuery. That’s huge!
