Game of Life in JQuery

Hi All,

I’ve just done a tutorial video on JQuery, I chose to hack together a quick version of the Game of Life.  This tutorial aims to show how JQuery can help you modify the DOM on the fly and do some nifty manipulations.  I hope you enjoy.

Please let me know if there are other JQuery topics you would like to see covered in a ‘practical’ style video.

    One minor typo:
    In placeRandomCells(), line 31, it should be ‘<’ instead of ‘>’:
    (Math.random() < chanceOfLiveCell)
