Hi Akash!

The keyup event is triggered after a key is released in the keyboard. The jQuery keyup method is used to perform any action or run a function as the keyup event occurs in your web document.

In other words when a key is released and the keyup event occurs the jQuery $.keyup() method will capture the event and throw an alert with ASCII value of the pressed key.
