AJ: Yo! Yo! Yo! Coming at you live from the screencastosphere of Provo, Utah.
CHUCK: So, I have to ask, AJ. You realize this is a podcast and that it’s coming to no one live, right?
AJ: He’s got a good point.
CHUCK: We also have Merrick Christensen.
MERRICK: Yeah, I’m Merrick.
CHUCK: Joe Eames.
JOE: I’m not Merrick, I’m Joe.
MERRICK: He’s Joe.
CHUCK: Jamison Dance.
JAMISON: Hello friends.
CHUCK: And I’m Charles Max Wood from DevChat.tv. And this week, we’re going to be talking about jQuery.
So, I’m assuming we’ve all used jQuery at least a little bit.
CHUCK: If you’re doing web stuff, it’s pretty handy.
CHUCK: Yeah. Well, I remember back in the day when I was using Prototype for my web app. So, jQuery was a huge step up from Prototype, I have to say.
CHUCK: It’s just that the interface of the API felt better to me. I can’t really quantify how.
MERRICK: That’s fair. I was a big MooTools fan and I was kind of a hate Query, if you will.
AJ: As you should be, actually.
MERRICK: I didn’t hate jQuery per se, but I really loved MooTools just because the APIs were just so beautiful. And also, all of this new age, these structural libraries like Backbone and all that kind of thing was really natural in MooTools already, right? Because everything was so class-oriented and I’m not saying classes are the only way to organize your code.
