Should You Choose JavaScript Over jQuery for Joomla?

Should You Choose JavaScript Over jQuery for Joomla?

We held the Joomlashack Conference over 3 days in mid-November.

This was a free conference featuring over 20 of the best speakers from around the Joomla world.

I was amazed at how good the presentations were. We're currently editing all the videos and posting them to the Joomlashack YouTube channel.

This presentation was from Olivier Buisard. He is a JavaScript expert from Brooklyn, New York. He will be explaining why he recommends using the jQuery or pure JavaScript depending on the situation.

Today, we can do more with JavaScript than we were able to years ago. The standards matured, the browser war is (mostly) over and there is wide support. Now, we can create amazing interactions with just a few lines of code. Is it time to move on from jQuery? In this session, you will learn how you can replace jQuery with pure JavaScript and we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using libraries over native JavaScript.
