Synopsis:
This full-color book will show you how to make your websites more interactive and your interfaces more interesting and intuitive.

THIS BOOK COVERS:
  1. Basic programming concepts - assuming no prior knowledge of programming beyond an ability to create a web page using HTML & CSS
  2. Core elements of the JavaScript language - so you can learn how to write your own scripts from scratch
  3. 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)
  4. 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.

If you're looking to create more enriching web experiences, then this is the book for you.

Review:

Learn JavaScript and jQuery a nicer way

This full-color book adopts a visual approach to teaching JavaScript & jQuery, showing you how to make web pages more interactive and interfaces more intuitive through the use of inspiring code examples, infographics, and photography. The content assumes no previous programming experience, other than knowing how to create a basic web page in HTML & CSS. You'll learn how to achieve techniques seen on many popular websites (such as adding animation, tabbed panels, content sliders, form validation, interactive galleries, and sorting data)..

  • Introduces core programming concepts in JavaScript and jQuery
  • Uses clear descriptions, inspiring examples, and easy-to-follow diagrams
  • Teaches you how to create scripts from scratch, and understand the thousands of JavaScripts, JavaScript APIs, and jQuery plugins that are available on the web
  • Demonstrates the latest practices in progressive enhancement, cross-browser compatibility, and when you may be better off using CSS3

If you're looking to create more enriching web experiences and express your creativity through code, then this is the book for you.

Product Description

Review:
This book was written for anyone who wants to use JavaScript to make their websites a little more interesting, engaging, interactive, or usable. In particular, it is aimed at people who do not have a degree in computer science (well, not yet anyway).

Programming books can be intimidating, so we wanted to create a book that taught readers how to use JavaScript in a gentler, more visual way. And importantly, we did not want to assume that the reader had any experience of programming beyond the ability to create a web page in HTML and CSS. (After all, many kinds of people are creating websites these days, and not all of us come from a programming background.)

So, if you have ever struggled to get a script working on your web pages, want a better idea of how to customize scripts, or want to write your own scripts from scratch, this book was written for you.

We can't promise to remove the unfamiliar terms that programmers use, but we do tell you what they mean (with the aid of visual examples and diagrams) so that JavaScript won't seem like a foreign language any more.
