Consider an unordered list filled with ten or so list-items. In this video, I’ll show you exactly how to individually select each one of them. We’ll be using advanced selectors, including a touch of X-Path.

Starting today, I’m launching a daily video series that will teach you PRECISELY how to use the jQuery library in your own projects. We’ll start out by downloading the framework, creating our first function, examining syntax, and more. Every day, I’ll post a five-ten minute “training regimen” that expands on what you’ve already learned. So there’s no reason to fight it anymore! Learn this dang thing and start earning more money on ThemeForest.net with your new-found skills.

Web developers are lazy people in some ways. I’m perfectly willing to spend hours and hours learning a new programming language. But God forbid that I have to raise my hand and touch the mouse.
