*Fills the market gap for a beginner’s guide to JavaScript that teaches the language as it is implemented today.
*Teaches everything readers need to know to understand and use JavaScript, with tons of real-world code.
*Popular author established a vibrant community around his website and forum and his fans have been asking him to write a JavaScript book for years. It’s time for a modern, definitive JavaScript book. Most books currently selling were first written when JavaScript was mostly used for annoying and tedious tricks, such as alert boxes, status bar scrolls, when image rollovers and basic form validation were about as good as JavaScript got. JavaScript today is a vastly different language, primarily because of how it’s being used, due to Ajax, more consistent browser support, and the rise of frameworks. Larry Ullman’s JavaScript book teaches the language itself, as it is used today, without all the deadwood that’s long since been left behind (and thankfully so). The book will enforce modern JavaScript’s best practices, embracing key Web development approaches such as progressive enhancement. Although there have been other new JavaScript titles in the past couple of years, these are written by, and for, JavaScript pioneers. Such books, while also using today’s JavaScript, far exceed both the abilities and the needs of most of today’s Web developers. The marketplace truly is missing a beginner’s guide to JavaScript that teaches the language as it is implemented today. The book will teach everything readers need to know to understand and use JavaScript, including the most important aspects of what JavaScript is today. There will be tons of real-world code, demonstrated in both hand-written JavaScript and using one or more JavaScript frameworks.
