Becoming a Sexy Programmer: Slideshows

by Eric Berry

As a Rails programmer, I have been using Prototype and Scriptaculous for over a year and a half, solely because it comes packages with Rails and has helpers. About 3 months ago, I discovered JQuery, which is another Javascript library that combines the powers of Prototype and Scriptaculous into one. JQuery is very easy to install for your web app and has a TON of cool things you can do with it.

In this article, I will show you how to create a simple slide show using JQuery and the jQuery Cycle Lite plugin.
