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.
The jQuery Project is very excited to announce the dates for our first-ever San Francisco Bay Area conference. The conference will be held at the Microsoft Silicon Valley Research Center in Mountain View, California on April 24th and 25th, 2010.
The San Francisco Bay Area conference is the second of four events planned by the jQuery Project in 2010. The first was the jQuery14 event, and additional conferences are being planned in Europe and on the East Coast for later this year.
This venue is the largest that the project has worked with to date (Harvard Law School in ‘07, the MIT Stata Center in ‘08 and Microsoft New England Research Center in ’09) and we expect to sell out very quickly.
Registration is currently scheduled to open on Wednesday, March 17th; tickets will be priced at $199. In addition to General Admission tickets, we’re offering a limited number of discounted student tickets priced at $99, with a valid student ID.
A brief synopsis of some of the content that you’ll be able to expect:
- jQuery UI
- jQuery Plugins
- Complex Application Development
- jQuery Case Studies
In addition to two days of jQuery sessions, for the first time we’ll be adding an additional day of jQuery training, prior to the main event. The training will be provided by appendTo and focused on helping you and your team get up to speed on jQuery prior to attending the conference. The training will cover the following topics:
- Introduction to jQuery
- Finding Something
- Doing Something With It
- Introduction to jQuery UI
- Implementing jQuery UI Widgets
The training will be held on April 23rd at the Microsoft San Francisco offices in downtown San Francisco; tickets will cost $299. All proceeds from training go to the jQuery Project.

The jQuery Plugins site had been experiencing a few issues lately. So, today I moved it to its new home, http://plugins.jquery.com.
If you’ve got a plugin hosted on the jQuery Plugins site, please give your plugin a look and make sure everything is where it should be. If you have any issues, please submit them to the jQuery Plugins Website Issue Queue.
