Yes, see if your boss will spring for some training. Maybe at a local community college?
Let me see if I can set the stage for you a bit. In a modern web application, there are two programs in play:
Most commonly, the user simply navigates to a page, and when he does so, that page includes <script> tags which cause the user’s browser to request and to download all the script content (including JQuery itself). Then, say, a onload event, again on the user’s browser, causes the browser to start running all that code.
These are “elementary basics” of the scenario, but you must understand them thoroughly before anything else will make the slightest lick o’ sense. Training exists. Avail yourself of it. In due time, “the little light will come on,” and don’t feel out-of-sorts just because it hasn’t done so quite yet. There most assuredly was a time when all of us said, “huh?”
