jQuery Creator John Resig Leaves Mozilla

John Resig, known as the creator of the jQuery library, announced that he is departing from his role as lead JavaScript evangelist at the Mozilla Foundation. Resig apparently has no complaints - the recent year and a half spent at Mozilla has allowed him to work on jQuery full time, which has been a boon not just for the development of the library but also for web developers.

According to Resig, these efforts have resulted in "a drastically improved jQuery organisation," now operating under the Software Freedom Conservancy. With the project in good hands, Resig plans to scale back his involvement and take on new challenges.
