Jérôme Mahuet said

Awesome stuff Gregg. Another jQuery plugin I like a lot is timeago.js. It’s working the same way that “distance_of_time_in_words ActionView helper” in Ruby on Rails.

Thanks guys, glad you liked the Screencast. Igmarin, unfortunately we're not covering responsive layout, but perhaps we'll see some of that in the CSS Anti-Patterns course coming up. =)

Excellent screencast, i can't wait for the new jQuery Air Course, will it be possible to cover about responsive layout?, I do not know if with this libraries or maybe the best practices to do it.

Another library that isn't a jQuery library but is super helpful to use with jQuery is underscore.js. As they say "It's the tie to go along with jQuery's tux".

There are a ton of open source jQuery libraries to help you build your web applications. In this screencast we'll walk through some of the more useful libraries that were recommended to me. We'll also look at a few newer libraries that help with Responsive Design.
