Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If youre an advanced beginner or intermediate JavaScript developer, JavaScript Enlightenment will solidify your understanding of the language—especially if you use a JavaScript library. In this concise book, JavaScript expert Cody Lindley (jQuery Cookbook) provides an accurate view of the language by examining its objects and supporting nuances.

Libraries and frameworks help you build web applications quickly and efficiently, but when things go wrong or performance becomes an issue, knowing how and why they work is critical. If youre ready to go under the hood and get your hands dirty with JavaScript internals, this is your book.

  • Get a short and digestible summary of ECMA-262, Edition 3, backed by real code you can run instantly
  • Examine the creation of JavaScript objects
  • Learn complex values, primitive values, scope, and inheritance
  • Understand the importance of the head object
  • Work with string, number, and Boolean objects and values
  • Discover how to use the null value and the built-in math object
  • Get into the details—beyond Mozillas reference guide for JavaScript 1.5

Synopsis:

This short and digestible summary of JavaScript 1.5 (ECMA-262, Edition 3 specification) focuses on the nature of objects in JavaScript, giving you an accurate JavaScript worldview through an examination of native JavaScript objects and supporting nuances: complex values, primitive values, scope, inheritance, the head object, and more.

If youre a designer or developer who has only used JavaScript under the mantle of libraries—such as jQuery and Prototype—the material in this book will help transform you from a JavaScript library user into a JavaScript developer.

About the Author

Cody Lindley, editor of jQuery Cookbook, brings together over a dozen contributors, all of them key people in jQuery's ongoing development process. Each focuses on subjects they've worked with and often helped create.
