Story Board - a small app built with jQuery and jQuery UI

After spending much time with Java and other Java technologies working behind the curtains in the dark and smoky rooms I started exploring front-end dominant languages like JavaScript, HTML5 and much talked CSS.

There are many JavaScript libraries and tools available out there but in all I really liked jQuery; it is simple and easy to use and growing at very rapid speed. More and more applications have started using jQuery extensively.

In this small application (I call it StoryBoard) I have used jQuery along with equally power jQuery UI library which gives a lot of functionality and control with much less code.

I use along with NetBeans to create small demo and find it really helpful to develop and test the application rapidly.
