How to not use jQuery

12th January 2016 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from jQuery vs. ES2015 and Weird Browsers

jQuery is great for supporting older browsers and quickly shipping features without having to have an inside-out knowledge of jQuery, but is often unnecessary and could have performance implications.

This talk will show you how you can use features of JavaScript introduced since jQuery was written—features introduced in ES5 and ES2015—and discuss whether you really need to use jQuery in your next project.
