Wouldn’t it be cool to meet the people who’s online presence has helped make jQuery what it is today! These people have put in the hard graft writing heaps of jQuery tutorials which they have shared online to help us understand and become better jQuery developers.
Well, you’re in luck! I have made a list of what I think are the top 10 jQuery developers to hit the internet. Get to know the jQuery Gurus more personally and get inspired.
1. John Resig
2. Remy Sharp
3. Karl Swedberg
4. Ben Nadal
Ben Nadal is the chief software engineer at Epicenter Consulting in New York. I really do like the effort Ben puts into his development blog where he shares in-depth articles about ColdFusion and jQuery (since 2006). I also really like the photos Ben adds to his posts, they give his website a great personal look & feel. Ben may not have the biggest following yet but this is surely a matter of time because he puts the reader first and he knows his stuff! Don’t agree? Ask Ben!
5. Cody Lindley
Cody Lindley describes himself as a client-side engineer (aka front-end developer) and recovering Flash developer. Cody is the jQuery expert who created the jQuery ThickBox and jTip Plugins and is a member of the jQuery UI developer relations team. Cody started his blog in 2009 where he shares an archive of web development posts. Cody is currently working for memolane.com as a Lead Client-side Engineer.
