9781449320195: JavaScript for PHP Developers: A Concise Guide to Mastering JavaScript

If you want to significantly expand your web development skills beyond PHP, this practical, hands-on book teaches you ECMAScript—the core JavaScript language—from the ground up. You’ll discover some similarities between JavaScript and PHP, such as conditions and loops, but the primary focus is on JavaScript’s unique object creation, classes, prototypes, and inheritance.

JavaScript knowledge is essential for working with today’s Web, whether you’re building applications for the client, the server, or for mobile use—and your PHP experience gives you a head start. This book will help you become fluent with JavaScript quickly, and then serve as a handy reference once you start coding.

  • Explore JavaScript syntax, including variables, arrays, loops, and conditions
  • Learn how functions are important in JavaScript—and why they’re actually objects
  • Delve into JavaScript’s object-oriented features, including prototypes, code reuse, and inheritance
  • Examine the built-in API and explore its global functions, properties, and objects
  • Learn about updates in ECMAScript5, the latest version of the standard
  • Use common design patterns to organize your code in large applications

Book Description O'Reilly Media. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 100 pages. Ready to expand your PHP web development skills with JavaScript With this guide, you can use your experience with PHP to learn JavaScript from the ground up. Because both languages share the C language syntax, this book skips similarities such as conditions and loops to focus on JavaScripts unique object creation, classes, prototypes, and inheritance. PHP is a valuable web development tool on its own, but with the upsurge in client-side development, knowledge of JavaScript has become essential for working with todays Web. By concentrating on the differences between these languages, this book helps PHP programmers, web architects, and both back-end and front-end engineers become fluent in JavaScript fairly quickly. Learn syntax similarities and differences between JavaScript and PHP Discover how JavaScript behaves with and without the DOM and BOM Work with JavaScript functionsand learn why theyre actually objects Explore JavaScripts object-oriented features, code reuse, and inheritance Take a close look at JavaScripts built-in API Learn whats new in ECMAScript 5, the standard that represents the core JavaScript language Organize your code with JavaScript design patterns Compare JavaScript design patterns with classic programming patterns This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781449320195
