To build jQuery, you need to have the latest Node.js/npm and git 1.7 or later. Earlier versions might work, but are not supported. For Windows, you have to download and install git and Node.js. OS X users should install Homebrew. Once Homebrew is installed, run brew install git to install git, and brew install node to install Node.js. Linux/BSD users should use their appropriate package managers to install git and Node.js, or build from source if you swing that way. Easy-peasy. Special builds can be created that exclude subsets of jQuery functionality. This allows for smaller custom builds when the builder is certain that those parts of jQuery are not being used. For example, an app that only used JSONP for $.ajax() and did not need to calculate offsets or positions of elements could exclude the offset and ajax/xhr modules. Any module may be excluded except for core, and selector. To exclude a module, pass its path relative to the src folder (without the .js extension). Some example modules that can be excluded are: Note: Excluding Sizzle will also exclude all jQuery selector extensions (such as effects/animatedSelector and css/hiddenVisibleSelectors). The build process shows a message for each dependent module it excludes or includes. As an option, you can set the module name for jQuery's AMD definition. By default, it is set to "jquery", which plays nicely with plugins and third-party libraries, but there may be cases where you'd like to change this. Simply set the "amd" option: For questions or requests regarding custom builds, please start a thread on the Developing jQuery Core section of the forum. Due to the combinatorics and custom nature of these builds, they are not regularly tested in jQuery's unit test process. The non-Sizzle selector engine currently does not pass unit tests because it is missing too much essential functionality.

Announcing Virtual Leadership Summit

Greetings FEW Members and Friends of FEW,

It is in times of darkness when we show ourselves as adaptable and strong.  The National Board of Directors (NBOD) and I are pleased to announce the first Virtual Leadership Summit for government employees scheduled for July 20 – 24, 2020.  This training is just for you; no per diem, no travel, just TRAINING at a low registration rate!

Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, FEW remains resolved that your safety is our priority and the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation was to cancel an on-site event. As the world continues to change, we will continue to adapt.  FEW will always rise to the challenge and continue to help federal workers achieve excellence in their careers and create new opportunities.

That is why we adjusted our plans to host a Virtual Leadership Summit.  This is an example of leadership at its best – a full week of training with specialized tracks for EEO, HR, Project Management, Management and Leadership professionals. This training is about you and our purpose is to connect you to the right resources for development and career advancement.  The Summit consists of over 24 specialized courses a day to motivate you to take that next bold step. All courses align with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Executive Core Competencies (Leading People, Leading Change, Business Acumen, Result Driven and Building Coalitions).

We will be continually updating information regarding course selections, and special events, just to name a few, so keep checking in for updates.

So, make sure you join us and take advantage of all that we have to offer! I promise it will be your best personal and professional investment of the year!
