When I evaluate libraries, I make sure that what I include mostly consists of things I will actual use within a project. Bloated libraries are out of the question for me. Also important is the way a library integrates into my workflow and other server side enviroments I use. The library must be unobstrusive and easy to extend.
It has a lighweight footprint of around 19kb(compressed), is CSS3 compliant and provides cross browser functionality (IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera). The jQuery community is really active and provides a huge amount of additonal plugins that extend its functionality. jQuery allowed me to move many of my snippets into small plugins, that I can load where ever I need them. I will share some of those in the future and also write up some tutorials about things I have created with jQuery in the past months.
jQuery is up to version 1.1.2 and version 1.1.3 is just around the corner.

I am a full-stack developer. My expertise include:
I love programming, design and know my way around server architecture as well. I would never feel complete, with one of these missing.
I have a broad range of interests, that’s why I constantly dive into new technologies and expand my knowledge where ever required. Technologies are evolving fast and I enjoy using the latest.
Apart from that, I am a peace loving guy who tries to have people around him that think the same. I truly believe in the principle: “If you help someone, someone will help you, when you need it."
