Murachs JavaScript & jQuery, Paperback / softback Book

Murachs JavaScript & jQuery Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Today, you will find JavaScript and jQuery used everywhere on the web, from small individual sites to the largest commercial sites like Google, Amazon, and Facebook.

That is why every web developer needs to have at least a basic set of JavaScript and jQuery skills. And now, this one book presents the JavaScript and jQuery skills that every web developer needs whether you are a web designer who is coming from a background in HTML and CSS or a server-side programmer who is coded in languages like PHP, C#, Java, and Python.

Due to its unique, self-paced approach, this book works regardless of your experience. And when you are through learning from it, this book will become the best quick reference that you have ever used.

To make this all possible, section 1 presents a 7-chapter course on JavaScript that will get anyone off to a great start, with a special focus on the skills you need for getting the most from jQuery.

Then, section 2 presents all of the jQuery skills that you are likely to need, including how to create slide shows, image swaps, carousels, and to validate the data in to use plugins and widgets...and how to use Ajax and JSON to get data from a web server without reloading the web page. At that point, you will have a solid set of JavaScript and jQuery skills.

Then, section 3 lets you expand your skill set as you learn how to work with date and time objects, browser objects, web storage, arrays, your own objects, regular expressions, and more.

The last chapter takes your skills to the expert level as you learn how to use modules and IIFEs to build jQuery plugins.

Complete coding examples, practice exercises, and Murachs distinctive paired-pages format (each topic is presented in a 2-page spread with text and illustrations) all combine to let you tailor the pace and content to your personal learning style.
