The jQuery Project is Proud to Announce the jQuery Mobile Project

Posted on by

Mobile web development is an emerging hot topic in the web development community. As such, the jQuery Team has been hard at work on determining the strategy and direction that the jQuery Project will take. Today, we are proud to announce the jQuery Mobile Project. We’ve launched a new site at jquerymobile.com that publicly outlines our strategy, research and UI designs.

As always, we want to hear from you.  We’ve created a new Mobile jQuery forum to collect feedback from the community.  Please feel free to join in on the discussion and read more in the announcement.

jQuery London 2010 Postponed

Posted on by

After much deliberation, The jQuery Project Operations Team has decided to postpone our planned London event this year.  Unfortunately, we were unable to secure a suitable venue that would allow us to provide the type of professional-quality event the community has come to expect within a budget sustainable by the project.  We regret any inconvenience this may have caused and are actively working on planning a European event for 2011.
