To learn jQuery drag and drop tutorial,you should have come basic knowhow of css and css3,as while we are using jQuery animation some css3 properties helps dom elements to become more attractive.

The functions which are used in code:

.Sortable() : jQueryUI provides sortable() method to reorder elements in list or grid using the mouse. This method performs sortability action based upon an operation string passed as the first parameter.

The .append() and .appendTo() methods perform the same task. The major difference is in the syntax-specifically, in the placement of the content and target. With .append(), the selector expression preceding the method is the container into which the content is inserted. With .appendTo(), on the other hand, the content precedes the method, either as a selector expression or as markup created on the fly, and it is inserted into the target container.
