I want to look at using some jquery functions with my web work.

Where is the best place to look for education on jquery?

I found where to download but they have two versions and that prompted me to ask some of the coders in here where to start.

It's been a long time since I've done any coding with javascript and I've gotten so far removed that I know it will take some time to get up to speed.

I know Eric is really good at this and probably a few other people in the forum.

Any help will be appreciated.

I took the approach of learning JQuery on a as need to basis. If you have a need for JQuery on your website then Google for that type of script and use the version that script uses. Unless the script is a very old one you should be able to test it with the latest version after you prove it with the example scripts version. As you look up some of your JQuery needs your more then likely to come across some things that you didn't even know you could do with JQuery. There's so many plugins available that it will make your head spin. Some of these scripts are cool but may not provide enough function to really make your site better for your users. My latest work has been using the fabric.js to make a custom mapping app for one of my websites. It taught me a lot on how mix php and JQuery aka (AJAX) within the same application. I also took an existing ToDo script and altered it for mobile devices. I use both of these apps at work to make my job easier and to make access to data more user friendly.
I also have used it very heavily to modify what the Form Builder can do. I just recently completed a calculation script for a fellow CC user that had numerous input values.
The best thing to do is to start small and simple and then build on that. Also make sure you setup an account at Stack Overflow.

Paintbrush,

Thanks for the links. I'll be checking those out right now.

Eric,

Thanks for the info. I do plan on doing what you suggested. Just doing what I need to start and build from there. I was keeping up with the calculation thread and found that very interesting.

Why do I need an account at Stack Overflow? (Just curious.)

Stack Overflow has some great users just like Coffeecup. They've helped me get through a few sticky spots. When you need help with a script you can start a http://jsfiddle.net/ account to share it.

OK, I bought the book that Paintbrush mentioned and I think that was a great investment.

I decided to set up a test site just for this which will give me a place to learn without breaking anything important. :D
