Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you want to significantly expand your web development skills beyond PHP, this practical, hands-on book teaches you ECMAScript—the core JavaScript language—from the ground up. Youll discover some similarities between JavaScript and PHP, such as conditions and loops, but the primary focus is on JavaScripts unique object creation, classes, prototypes, and inheritance.

JavaScript knowledge is essential for working with todays Web, whether youre building applications for the client, the server, or for mobile use—and your PHP experience gives you a head start. This book will help you become fluent with JavaScript quickly, and then serve as a handy reference once you start coding.

  • Explore JavaScript syntax, including variables, arrays, loops, and conditions
  • Learn how functions are important in JavaScript—and why theyre actually objects
  • Delve into JavaScripts object-oriented features, including prototypes, code reuse, and inheritance
  • Examine the built-in API and explore its global functions, properties, and objects
  • Learn about updates in ECMAScript5, the latest version of the standard
  • Use common design patterns to organize your code in large applications

Synopsis:

Ready to expand your PHP web development skills with JavaScript? With this guide, you can leverage your experience with PHP to pick up JavaScript quickly. Both languages share the C language syntax, enabling you to skip similarities such as conditions and loops to focus on JavaScripts unique object creation, classes, prototypes, and inheritance.

PHP is a valuable web development tool on its own, but with the increase in client-side development, knowledge of JavaScript has become essential for working with todays Web. By concentrating on the differences between these languages, this book helps PHP programmers, web architects, and back-end and front-end engineers get up to speed on JavaScript in no time. JavaScript for PHP Developers also provides a complete and convenient reference JavaScript.
