Learning Ext JS is a great resource even for 3.0 operations. I highly recommend it.

I beleive that the tutorial is valid for 2.x. I was also in search for 3.x, but didnt find any. I am trying with the 2.x tutors only.

There are quite a changes from 2.x to 3.x. For example, DynamicGridPanel's package and its usage has changed (in terms of parameters it accepts). I also am facing an issue on the same, and posted a question on the forum -

also - it will not conflict with your jquery

in fact you can swap out the core extjs engine and replace it with jquery using the adapter setup
