Writing jQuery Plugins

Writing jQuery Plugins

Faizul Hasan who specializes in JavaScript, enlightened us about writing jQuery plugins for this week’s tech workshop. Faizul first introduced us to plugins and stated that jQuery plugins are simply a new method that can be used to extend jQuery’s prototype object. Thus by extending the prototype object, a user enables all jQuery objects to inherit any methods that he or she may add.

He also discussed why plugins are needed; the pros and cons. Faizul concluded the presentation with a demonstration of developing a jQuery plugin.
