I authored the learning site jQuery Fundamentals, contributed to the jQuery Cookbook from O’Reilly Media, served as a technical reviewer for David Herman’s Effective JavaScript, and created the TXJS conference. I have also created and contributed to several open-source projects. I was instrumental in getting deferreds and promises introduced to jQuery 1.5; I created the js-assessment project, a test-driven tool for assessing a developer’s JavaScript skills; and I contributed key modules to the Johnny Five library for using JavaScript to interact with Arduinos.

Using hidden inputs and labels, we will create an accordion that will animate the content areas on opening and closing.

Please note: the result of this tutorial will only work as intended in browsers that support the CSS3 properties in use. The Markup We will be going through an example that uses checkboxes where one content section is open by default (the input needs to be ‘checked’).
