So I was searching for a people picker (more on that later) to implement in my JavaScript form for my SharePoint project, when I stumbled across this:

http://spservices.codeplex.com/releases/view/92552

SPServices is absolutely wonderful. I love not having to code all the gooky CAML, GetList and onSuccess methods to retrieve list items via Web Service from SharePoint.

In my trials with it so far, it performs quickly too.

Some of the methods are only supported in SharePoint 2013, but I’ve success using it for several things in SP2010.
