Book Summary : JavaScript for Absolute Beginners

If you are new to both JavaScript and programming, this hands-on book is for you. Rather than staring blankly at gobbledygook, you'll explore JavaScript by entering and running hundreds of code samples in Firebug, a free JavaScript debugger. Then in the last two chapters, you'll leave the safety of Firebug and hand-code an uber cool JavaScript application in your preferred text editor.

Written in a friendly, engaging narrative style, this innovative JavaScript tutorial covers the following essentials:

  • Core JavaScript syntax, such as value types, operators, expressions, and statements provided by ECMAScript.
  • Features for manipulating XHTML, CSS, and events provided by DOM.
  • Object-oriented JavaScript, including prototypal and classical inheritance, deep copy, and mixins.
  • Closure, lazy loading, advance conditional loading, chaining, currying, memoization, modules, callbacks, recursion, and other powerful function techniques.
  • Encoding data with JSON or XML.
  • Remote scripting with JSON-P or XMLHttpRequest
  • Drag-and-drop, animated scrollers, skin swappers, and other cool behaviors.
  • Optimizations to ensure your scripts run snappy.
  • Formatting and naming conventions to prevent you from looking like a greenhorn.
  • New ECMAScript 5, DOM 3, and HTML 5 features such as Object.create(), Function.prototype.bind(), strict mode, querySelector(), querySelectorAll(), and getElementsByClassName().

As you can see, due to its fresh approach, this book is by no means watered down. Therefore, over the course of your journey, you will go from JavaScript beginner to wizard, acquiring the skills recruiters desire.

About the Author
Terry McNavage has been hand-coding JavaScript for 12 years. In addition to being a JavaScript wizard, he has expertise in creative design, XHTML, CSS, PHP, Perl, and MySQL. Terry is an elite runner, too. For the past 14 years he has run 100 or more miles per week over the hilly terrain of Pittsburgh. He is also a bit of a foodie. Though his Pirates have had 18 losing seasons in a row, Terry remains hopeful they'll raise the Jolly Roger more often than the white flag in 2011.
