jQuery has made JavaScript development easier, and helped many developers build powerful applications quickly. Sometimes, though, you need to go beyond jQuery - because you need to work with someone else's code, because you need something smaller and lighter-weight, or because you need to go beyond what jQuery can do. This book will show you how to build on your core jQuery skills and go much further into JavaScript itself, examining event handler, function declaration, JavaScript patterns, and the DOM.
