Techopedia explains jQuery
jQuery was introduced in January 2006 by John Resig at BarCamp NYC.
The jQuery library provides several user friendly strategies and functions for rich application development. Because the functions of jQuery are simple, it is very popular among developers. jQuery may be used in all Web based applications, in spite of the technology. It may be used with ASP, PHP, JSP, CGI, Servlets and most Web programming languages.
