For the past couple of weeks I’m  (re)learning a couple of web frameworks. Namely, Yii for PHP and jQuery for JavaScript.

Almost always, my process when learning something new goes like this:

  1. Find an introductory tutorial or book to get a glimpse of what is possible and get a feeling of how it all works.
  2. Establish a robust source of documentation, which, at least for OSS stuff, will most probably be the guide found on the developers’ site.
  3. Play around with it. For me that almost always means “Make a simple game with it”

And this is what I came up with jQuery after just 2-3 days of getting serious about it:

Such a great and easy framework!!

All code is embedded in the HTML in case you want to take a look.
