Praise for Learning JavaScript

"Between modern web interfaces, server side technologies, and HTML5 games, JavaScript has never been a more important or versatile tool. To anyone just starting out with JavaScript or looking to deepen their knowledge of the practical core of the language, I would highly recommend Learning JavaScript." --Evan Burchard, Independent Web Developer

"Although I've read a couple of books about JavaScript before, as a backend developer, I was thrilled to see Tim Wright's Learning JavaScript. The nuances of progressive enhancement versus graceful degradation are finally explained in a manner that someone new to front-end coding can understand. Bravo, Tim." --Joe Devon, Cofounder,

"Tim Wright has written a delightfully practical book for the novice front-end developer who wants to learn JavaScript. This book's strength is in providing a good introduction to JavaScript while also illustrating the context of when and where it should be used." --R. S. Doiel, Senior Software Engineer, USC Web Services

"Learning JavaScript is a great introduction into modern JavaScript development. From covering the history to its exciting future, Learning JavaScript equips the novice developer to practical application in the workforce. I wish this book came along when I was a novice!" --Hillisha Haygood, Senior Web Developer, Sporting News

"Tim presents invaluable techniques for writing JavaScript with progressive enhancement at the forefront. If you are new to JavaScript then this book will prove to be a great asset in your learning. Covering all the basics and then right through to touch events, AJAX, and HTML5 APIs, the examples are clear and easy to follow. Using this book, you will learn when and how to use JavaScript to great effect." --Tom Leadbetter, Freelance Web Designer

"Learning JavaScript is valuable for both new and veteran developers. It is great for new developers because it is easy to read and provides a step-by-step process to becoming great at JavaScript. Veteran developers will be reminded of many of the best practices they have already forgotten." --Christopher Swenor, Manager of Technology, zMags

The Addison-Wesley Learning Series is a collection of hands-on programming guides that help you quickly learn a new technology or language so you can apply what you've learned right away. Each title comes with sample code for the application or applications built in the text. This code is fully annotated and can be reused in your own projects with no strings attached. Many chapters end with a series of exercises to encourage you to reexamine what you have just learned, and to tweak or adjust the code as a way of learning. Titles in this series take a simple approach: they get you going right away and leave you with the ability to walk off and build your own application and apply the language or technology to whatever you are working on.
