Speaking JavaScript, Paperback Book


Like it or not, JavaScript is everywhere these days - from browser to server to mobile - and now you, too, need to learn the language or dive deeper than you have.

This concise book guides you into and through JavaScript, written by a veteran programmer who once found himself in the same position.

Speaking JavaScript helps you approach the language with four standalone sections.

First, a quick-start guide teaches you just enough of the language to help you be productive right away.

More experienced JavaScript programmers will find a complete and easy-to-read reference that covers each language feature in depth.

Complete contents include: JavaScript quick start: Familiar with object-oriented programming?

This part helps you learn JavaScript quickly and properly. JavaScript in depth: Learn details of ECMAScript 5, from syntax, variables, functions, and object-oriented programming to regular expressions and JSON with lots of examples.

Pick a topic and jump in. Background: Understand JavaScript's history and its relationship with other programming languages. Tips, tools, and libraries: Survey existing style guides, best practices, advanced techniques, module systems, package managers, build tools, and learning resources.
