Is it hard to learn – No it’s really, really easy.
Why should I learn JQuery? – Because it’s the right move.
Learning JQuery is an absolute doddle. The time you spend (which will literally be a few minutes) to get the basics will save you a lot of time and trouble and seriously enhance your ability to dynamically manipulate web page layout.
