jQuery tip – skip $(document).ready() event

If you are new to jQuery you will notice that almost everything is wrapped with

     $(document).ready(function(){
           //your fancy javascript code here...
     });

What does it do? It check if all HTML tags are loaded and if so, execute your code. Easy as that. But if you are new to jQuery it’s really strange way of writing JS code :).

Did you know that this is not so required?

Actually if you move your JavaScript code at the end of the page you don’t need to wrap your code with that.

Hope this will be handy for someone.
