Now to the “good stuff”.
I am going to share several links that will not only improve your ability to add functionality within a website, the use and understanding of these websites alone can very well land you a decent job opportunity.
jQuery – http://jquery.com/
Add unbelievable functionality to ANY website by simply copying and pasting a jQuery plugin into your website.
MooTools – http://mootools.net/
Script-Aculo-Us – http://script.aculo.us/
Google Code – http://code.google.com/
Everything google & more at the tips of your fingers, at absolutely no cost to you.
Yahoo! User Interface (YUI) Library – http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/
Finally, I would like to leave you with a term you may or may not of heard before.
Ajax allows web applications to send data and retrieve data from, a server asynchronously (in the background) without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page
Practically everything you do on the web will include AJAX on some level.
Ajax should not be considered a “programming langauge”; but rather, Ajax is a combination of programming langauges and protocols.
