What will you learn from this book?

This brain-friendly guide teaches you everything from JavaScript language fundamentals to advanced topics, including objects, functions, and the browsers document object model. You wont just be reading—youll be playing games, solving puzzles, pondering mysteries, and interacting with JavaScript in ways you never imagined. And youll write real code, lots of it, so you can start building your own web applications. Prepare to open your mind as you learn (and nail) key topics including:

  • The inner details of JavaScript
  • How JavaScript works with the browser
  • The secrets of JavaScript types
  • Using arrays
  • The power of functions
  • How to work with objects
  • Making use of prototypes
  • Understanding closures
  • Writing and testing applications

Whats so special about this book?

We think your time is too valuable to waste struggling with new concepts. Using the latest research in cognitive science and learning theory to craft a multi-sensory learning experience, Head First JavaScript Programming uses a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works, not a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep.

Synopsis:

If you know HTML & CSS then you know all about web page style and structure; now it's time to give those pages some behavior, some interactivity. Want to understand that code you've been copying and pasting into your web pages? And do it in a way that won't put you to sleep? Then Head First JavaScript Programming is for you.

Learning a programming language is no easy task, but Head First JavaScript Programming uses puzzles, visuals, mysteries, interviews, and fun examples to make learning JavaScript fast, fun, and effective. But don't be fooled; you might be having a good time while you're learning JavaScript, but you're still learning all the serious stuff. Like how functions and objects work, what a callback is, how to interact with the web page using the Document Object Model, how to use arrays, and even what a closure is. JavaScript is one of the most popular languages in the world, and it's only getting more popular as the Web continues to grow. Learn JavaScript the Head First way, and get in on all the action.
