Synopsis:

The emergence of web technologies like HTML5, jQuery, and Ajax has supercharged interest in JavaScript " but newcomers to the language have found it practically impossible to find a useful, hands-on introduction to modern JavaScript programming. Equally valuable as both a tutorial and reference, Learning JavaScript is the book today™s JavaScript beginners have been searching for. Leading web developer, speaker, and innovator Tim Wright has brought together everything JavaScript novices need to know " and he™s completely avoided all the "filler" and obsolete content that make other JavaScript books so frustrating. Step by step, Wright illuminates key techniques ranging from events to data storage, code organization to library usage and integration with HTML5 and CSS3. This authoritative, enthusiastic book will prepare readers to apply JavaScript best practices in production projects, writing robust, secure code for the design level (jQuery, interface design), the development level (NodeJS, front-end templating), or both.
