A brand new jQuery is upon us and luckily we have one of the hosts of the popular yayQuery podcast in our midst. Alex Sexton joins the show to talk with us about the Future Webby Award Winning yayQuery podcast and then bring us all up to speed on the new changes that are happening to the jQuery core.
Meanwhile Trent and Dave catch up and talk about chairs, Dribbble, and a little bit about Austin on Rails. And of course, we couldn’t release this episode this week without talking about the Big Announcement from Apple about the (unfortunately named) the iPad and what it might mean for the future of web development.
We finish the show off with the greatest phone number known to man! TUNE IN TO FIND OUT!
