A Farewell to jQuery

Card image cap


jQuery was a giant part of my life. Today I removed it for the first time.

Alfred Tennyson wrote in the Charge of the Light Brigade:

Theirs not to make reply,
  Theirs not to reason why,
  Theirs but to do and die.

Sadly, due to no fault of it's own, jQuery is well on its way to the dustbin of history. Today, I removed it for the first time in a project.

jQuery was basically one of the reasons I started into web development and I think it is the reason why we're able to have dynamic, interactive web applications today.

The youths of today won't remember a day when you couldn't have even dreamed of building the most basic of interactive pages without jQuery.

You are gone, but not forgotten.
