1. What is jQuery?
Is the most popular JavaScript library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages.

2. How does it help us as developers?
JQuery provide many functionalities with many lines of code and that accomplish common assignment. Instead to write that lines of code, the developers just invoke the JavaScript functions.

3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
Because the uncompressed version is easier to read and should be use in the development environment. On the other hand, the minified version has smaller size and should be use in the production environment.

  1. What is jQuery?

jQuery is a Javascript library.

  1. How does it help us as developers?

jQuery is adding functionalities to our Javascript code that allow us to do powerful things without having to create everything from the ground up.

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

The uncompressed version of jQuery is full of comments, documentation, etc that make it easy to understand and modify the code. The minified version is pure code stripped from all the non-necessary text. The minified version is much lighter than the uncompressed version and thus load faster when called for our website.

What is jQuery?
A library of Java script functions.
How does it help us as developers?
It is a library, by definiton it allows us to reuse existing code. It also takes care of browsers specificities…
Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
Uncompressed is commented and easier to read for human but has a larger size.
Minified is not human friendly but all non- required characters have been removed to make it lighter in size.
The minified version is smaller in size and can be downloaded faster by web clients.


#64
1. jQuery is a JavaScript library that helps developers build web-pages much faster.

2. jQuery allows developers to add better visuals like objects fading in and out
   of the web-page.

3. The uncompressed version has all the code neatly written, along with comments, 
   so that developers can easily read it. The minified version allows developers to use
   a smaller file and not use as much memory when it is being downloaded.

#65
  1. JQuery is a free Javascript library
  2. JQuery contains many useful functions that allow developers to use higher level javascript functions without writing all the code needed. It also provides support for other browsers.
  3. Uncompressed jQuery is human-readable, it is used to provide developer a deeper understanding of jQuerry functions. Minified version has the same code but stripped of all the white spaces and extra code so it is as small as possible. It’s not human-readable but it loads much faster, that’s why we use it on our servers.

1. What is jQuery?
jQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps

2. How does it help us as developers?
Often with jQuery you can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10-20 lines of regular JavaScript code.

3. Why do we have 2 versions 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.

    jQuery is the most popular JavaScript library in use today and makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps.

  2. How does it help us as developers?
    jQuery simplifies development and significantly reduces the number of lines of code that the developer would otherwise have to generate. When using jQuery the developer can often substitute a single line of code for 10 – 20 lines of regular JavaScript code. jQuery also makes it easy to write cross-browser JavaScript code and enables the developer to write powerful JavaScript apps that animate and manipulate the web page.

  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    One version of the jQuery library (uncompressed) provides developers with library files that are easy to read, understand and modify while the other version of the jQuery library (minified) provides developers with a highly compact library (23kb) that developers use on their sites because it downloads much more quickly which improves the user experience.

1.jQuery is a free reusable library. It has functions, they can help to avoid writing code for lot of applications by just linking jQuery and using required functions.
2.It helps in saving time, no need to write too much code and also browser compatibility.
3.One version has all the comments, explanation etc. Other version has just code. Which is helpful in web pages for easy downloads.


#78

What is jQuery? A freely available javascript library for anyone to use.
How does it help us as developers? It saves time as there is no need to rewrite code that has already been written and shared by other developers.
Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed? uncompressed is more readable and understandable, but minified saves space and is what is actually implemented on a website as it is quicker to download for the end user

1. What is jQuery?

jQuery is the most widely used and popular JavaScript library in existence. It has a variety of functions written within it that speed up the process of adding animations, making XML (ajax) requests, or manipulating the DOM (Document Object Model) just to name a few. There are countless other use cases where implementing some jQuery script could radically speed up the development process of your webapp.

2. How does it help us as developers?

jQuery is important because it allows us to quickly and easily access functions and features in a single line that otherwise would require dozens of lines to program the logic behind. This radically speeds up the development process, especially if you familiarize yourself with the jQuery codebase early on.

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

Version 1–the uncompressed version–is used mainly for developers to read and understand the content of the jQuery library. It contains comments, easily humanly read code, and white spaces to break up lines…however it is rather large. This is where the second version comes in.

Version 2–the minified version–is much more lightweight than it’s larger sibling discussed above. It accomplishes this by removing the unnecessary whitespaces and comments to create a ‘bare-essentials’ flavor of jQuery that still has all the same functionality…but without the added weight and speed reductions that are the hallmark of Version 1. This version is useful for deployment on a final product to speed up loading times, while the previous and larger Version 1 is good for programers who are trying to understand a function or aspect of the library in more detail. Examining anything in the minified library is an absolute nightmare.

Despite the radical differences, both were integral in the mass adoption of the library among the development community.
