    jQuery is a javascript library written in javascript which help to make it easier to write and develop website.
  2. How does it help us as developers?
    As it have alot of commonly used function being implemented, it make developing much faster and also makes code look neater as you would not have to write complex function again.
  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    There 2 version of jQuery minified is for performance but code is unreadable and uncompressed version code is more readable but requires more time to download. It might required longer loading time.
#202
  1. jQuery is a popular, comprehensive and free JavaScript library that is used on many sites today.

  2. It saves us a lot of time, as we can implement commonly used functions without writing all the code for them. We can add animations, implement AJAX, add cleaner functionalities to our webpage and much more.

  3. The uncompressed version is the raw version, where we can find comments and is easier to read by us as developers. The minified version is cleaned-up of non-essential things, and left just with the code. It is much smaller in size and this is the version we want to refer to on our website, as it saves users loading time.

  • Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    1: jQuery is the lego-case for js programmers to easy-pick-and-build.
    You can easily find functions and looks that you want for your site.
    2:You can scratch build any code, but its pretty inconvenient, use jQuery.
    3:Uncompressed, the code is prettier/easier to look at, but slower to download. By removing spaces in the code, you gain speed for the user.

  1. What is jQuery?
    jQuery is a Javascript based library that allow devs to builds JavaScipt sites fast and easy.

  2. How does it help us as developers?
    By providing Devs with means to easily create powerful apps by using the code for common tasks and it’s compatible with different browsers.

  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    The uncompressed file is for Developers to read and understand. The compressed version is for use in web apps

1.What is jQuery?

jQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps.
Often with jQuery you can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10-20
lines of regular JavaScript code.jQuery is itself written in JavaScript, and comes in the form of a single .js file
that you link to from your webpage. Your JavaScript code then accesses the library by calling various jQuery functions.

2.How does it help us as developers?
With jQuery you can write powerful JavaScript apps using fewer lines of code.
jQuery is great for things like animations, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, image effects, and user interface elements.
jQuery lets you easily write cross-browser JavaScript code.

3.Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?

The uncompressed .js file is easy to read and modify, but it’s around 160kb in size (at the time of writing).
The minified .js file has all comments, whitespace, and other unnecessary characters removed from the file,
squeezing the whole library into a mere 23kb. Although you can’t easily read the code, this is the version
you’ll want to place on your site, as it’s much quicker for visitors to download.

1. What is jQuery?

The most popular JS library in use today. It makes it easier and quicker to write JS code… it is itself wrtten in JS and comes in a single js file.

2. How does it help us as developers?

JQuery is powerful in animating the page, letting your code run cross browsers, and leverage AJAX. We can achieve the same result writing our own code, but using JQuery saves us a tremendous amount of time.

3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?

The uncompressed version is the most readable, has all the comments and spaces, making it easier to change too. It is however quite voluminous. The minified is much smaller, nearly 10 times smaller, and has all the spacing and comments taken out. Because of its smaller size it can be downloaded much quicker by the visitors of the website and you should therefore use this version on your code, not the uncompressed one.

#207
  1. What is jQuery? - A popular javascript library that allows developers to reuse code such as animated effects so we can develop websites and applications without having to ‘reinvent the wheel’

  2. How do it help developers? - Answer above^

  3. Why is there 2 versions of jQuery? (uncompressed and minified) - Uncompressed files is easy to read and modify but takes up a good chunk of memory, making visitors download content slower. Minified files removes comments and other unnecessary characters, making it harder for developers to read but makes it easier for visitors and users to access the website or application faster

What is jQuery? jQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps. Often with jQuery you can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10-20 lines of regular JavaScript code.
How does it help us as developers? It saves lots of time and effort needed to complete projects. It also lessens the chances of major bugs and issues that may arise if one had to program everything from scratch.
Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed? The uncompressed version is more verbose and ‘human friendly’… a person could read the code and figure out what certain sections are doing with ease. The problem is that is 160kb versuse the minified version which is just 23kb in size that is a major difference in performance between downloading such a small sized file versus the larger one (by 8x’s).

  2. How does it help us as developers? * jQuery helps us to write powerful JavaScript apps using fewer lines of code and it’s great for animations, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, image effects, and user interface elements.

  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed? The uncompressed one is a version that’s easy to read and modify with all comments and unnecessary characters but it’s a larger dimension than the minified version that contains only the essential code and it’s very fast to use in the execution of the program…

    Write code with fewer lines
    Write cross-browser code more easily
    Create animations, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, image effects, and user interface elements easier than with regular JavaScript code.
  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    minified is lighter (webpage loads faster) but is less readable.
    uncompressed is heavier but is more readable.
#212

1 jQuery is the most used public library ( meaning accessible by anyone)
2 By using JQuery library Developers will take advantage of code already tested and implemented several times by the community.
3 There is no difference in functionality.
But the .min one has all unnecessary characters removed in order to make the file size smaller

#213
  1. A library of commonly used JavaScript code.
  2. Saves a lot of time. Makes us write less code, helps compatibility between different browsers.

    Open source javascript library.

  2. How does it help us as developers?
    Gives us access to a lot of powerful javascript code, which we can easily implement into our own web pages. It saves us reinventing the wheel.

  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    Uncompressed is easier for humans to read. It has comments and white spaces etc. Minified is a much smaller file and is faster to load on web pages.

#215
  1. jQuery is a free library which we can use in Javascript which has many functions which the developer can use as part of the website.
  2. jQuery has already developed many functions we can use which saves us the time of re-writing the functions in Javascript and which have also been tested across multiple browsers to ensure compatibility.
  3. The minified version removes all of the white space and is not very readable. Since it has all of the functionality of the uncompressed version it is better to use on websites because it has a faster load time due to it being a much smaller file.
