Hire jQuery Developers

Hire JQuery Developers

JQuery developers are highly in demand because they can simplify a web development process. JQuery is an open-source JavaScript library designed to simplify JavaScript tasks that are usually more complex and time-consuming. However, simplifying the text comes with some other overheads that you need to take care of. Remember, JQuery is not always a more innovative option than JavaScript. So, ensure to hire a JQuery developer familiar with both the programming languages and has an equal foothold on both languages. This will ensure that you have your web pages up and running in no time.

Understanding Jquery

We understood from the previous section that JQuery is a fast JavaScript library compressed in a .js file. It is a framework that comes as a built-in. It lets you use all the available functions of JavaScript to complete your day-to-day tasks.

It is easy to download the free compressed or uncompressed version of JQuery from the internet. If you are in the production stage, you will find the compressed version more useful. The compressed version is not readable because it removed all the additional extra white spaces, line feeds, etc., while the uncompressed version is readable. If you're in the debugging stage, you will find this more useful.

You can use JQuery in two ways:

You can use it during local installation. But, first, you need to download the JQuery in your local machine along with the HTML code.

You can also use JQuery in the CDN-based version; you need to include the library in the HTML code from the content delivery network.

Using JQuery library

  • You can use JQuery to develop Ajax-based applications.
  • Developers prefer to use JQuery for writing clean, crisp, and concise codes that are reusable. 
  • JQuery is also used for cross-browser support. 
  • JQuery is used for creating Plugins to speed up web applications.
  • If your text increases SEO visibility, developers may want to set up jQuery content.
  • Should be able to understand and simplify the process of traversal of HTML DOM tree.
  • Handling events, performing animation, and adding ajax support in web applications.

Benefits of using JQuery

There are plenty of benefits of using JQuery. No wonder every developer loves using JQuery. Listed below are some of the benefits of using JQuery.

  1. JQuery is a faster version of the JavaScript library that is compressed into a single.js file. 
  2. It allows all the functions of JavaScript to be carried on for day-to-day tasks.
  3. It is simple to learn. Moreover, it can be used in multiple browsers. 
  4. It is written in JAvascript, so it is easy for a Java developer to learn.
  5. It simplifies the process of written code. 
  6. There are lots of options for developers.
  7. To help a website work faster, developers can use dev tags per requirement and store smaller files. For example, if you want to make the website faster, you may load only the div tags. Also, since these files are stored separately from the web page, you can modify the site from a central repository system. 
  8. The USP of this library is its short and straightforward code. However, if the developer you are hiring is not familiar with JavaScript or JQuery, you may struggle or find it challenging to complete the required code, making the page cumbersome. Thus you must hire a developer who has expertise in both JavaScript and JQuery. 
  9. JQuery is open source apart from having a vast community. So, suppose you are hiring a remote JQuery developer. In that case, he/she can take help from the extensive library with a good number of plugins or debugging tools to carry out any task without any obstacles. 
  10. Additionally, developers can benefit from the numerous tutorials available to work with many tools, plugins, etc., along with the help from the community on sites like Stack Overflow. 
  11. If your developer is working with JQuery, he/she can easily send data to web servers using Asynchronous JavaScript and XML or, in short, AJAX technology. So, when the user has an action, you can log in on the server without actually having to refresh the user page. Additionally, you can also install browser extensions so that users can perform additional actions on different websites. 
  12. JQuery also allows you to write codes and plugins faster. However, you need to hire carefully because a junior JQuery developer without much experience may not be able to solve a problem. And even a single mistake can make the code run slower, especially with so many extensions.

You must make your hiring decision carefully because if the developer is not thorough or experienced with JQuery, CSS, HTML, you won't reap all the benefits that JQuery has to offer.
