Microsoft Likes jQuery

Microsoft really likes jQuery. So much so that the software giant will be making the popular JavaScript library part of its official development platform. In the future, jQuery will be shipped with versions of Visual Studio, and Microsoft will provide support of jQuery to developers. Microsoft will also be using jQuery internally, using it to create Ajax controls and server-side helper methods for use with the .NET framework.

This is wonderful news. I am a big fan of jQuery; I first discovered the library a little over a year ago when working on a web project that required a lot of manipulation of the DOM. Since then, I have used jQuery in practically every web application I have developed. It is a fantastic, light-weight library which makes writing JavaScript code a pleasure, and I am glad to see Microsoft appreciates it as much as I do.
