ScottGu’s been at it again – this time, however, he’s announcing something quite unusual for Microsoft – shipping an open source toolset as part of Visual Studio in preference to creating a proprietary equivalent. To quote his posting:
This is a big win – jQuery is a great framework for client-side AJAX, with a huge community behind it – and it’s also an extremely pragmatic approach – why re-invent the wheel again?
Kudos then to Scott and his team – and time to buy “jQuery in Action”, I think!
