THIS BOOK COVERS:
Basic programming concepts – assuming no prior knowledge of programming beyond an ability to create a web page using HTML & CSS Core elements of the JavaScript language – so you can learn how to write your own scripts from scratch jQuery – which will allow you to simplify the process of writing scripts (this is introduced half-way through the book once you have a solid understanding of JavaScript) How to recreate techniques you will have seen on other web sites such as sliders, content filters, form validation, updating content using Ajax, and much more (these examples demonstrate writing your own scripts from scratch and how the theory you have learned is put into practice). As with our first book (the best-selling HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites), each chapter:
Breaks subjects down into bite-sized chunks with a new topic on each page Contains clear descriptions of syntax, each one demonstrated with inspiring code samples Uses diagrams and photography to explain complex concepts in a visual way By the end of the book, not only will you be able to use the thousands of scripts, JavaScript APIs, and jQuery plugins that are freely available on the web, and be able to customize them – you will also be able to create your own scripts from scratch.

  1. Good and informative, but riddled with errors JavaScript novices might not notice. I love Jon Duckett’s HTML and CSS book, it has been an invaluable resource in my career. I first started learning web development using it. I was eagerly awaiting this book for over a year. I couldn’t wait to learn JavaScript any longer, so I picked up JavaScript: The Definitive Guide and learned a lot online thanks to Codecademy, CodeAvengers, and lots of other great online resources. So, I have a pretty good grasp of JavaScript and use it every day in my job.

However, even many of the corrections are murky, directing you to download updated code examples that don’t exist. The author seems to have left this book for dead, even providing a dead email address on the website.

They confirmed my issues and said that they were issuing free replacements of the book. In my case, having purchased from Amazon, they said I would have to go through the Seller, which I did. The seller ended up issuing me a full refund.I re-purchased the latest printing of the book at Barnes & Noble and can report that all the errors have been corrected and the binding issue seems to have been resolved. So…My…
