Why would you want to use a library like jQuery? Why? It’s all about rapid web development. Libraries and frameworks allow you to write less code, which reduces your development time and costs. Let’s talk about the why of libraries like jQuery.
Type less code. Less code means less you need to maintain and the faster you can test and deploy your code. It reduces your costs.
But there’s a catch. Ready? You have to be smart about the third party plugins, libraries, and frameworks that you use. Why? These are dependencies, meaning your website and client are now dependent upon the code and its team keeping them up and running. You made the website dependent upon that code being stable, secure, and compatible with your code.
Be smart. Work smarter. Be smartly productive (yup, I just made that up).
If you listen carefully, you can hear the 1s and 0s flowing in your computer.
