Book Description

November 21, 2011
A hands-on guide for taking JavaScript applications global. As developers expand JavaScript applications to serve users around the world, problems typically arise regarding the best way to handle new languages, locales, dates, and measurements. This book is designed to help. "Going Global with JavaScript and Globalize.js" is unique in its focus on globalization, internationalization, and localization issues. The book helps make JavaScript applications world-ready and easily adapted to different human languages, notational conventions, and user interface preferences. The solutions and methods included range from simple programming constructs to elaborate techniques that use available information for hundreds of human languages, such as the Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR). There is a special focus on the emerging Globalize.js library, which provides data sets for more than 300 cultures, as well as the ability to develop custom cultures. The techniques included in this book, which are not readily found elsewhere, are easy to learn and apply.

More About the Author

I'm an IT generalist and specialist with strong interest in humanities--and humans. This explains why I have focused on character codes, localization, and accessibility.

After M.Sc. degree in mathematics, I worked with IT services, user support, software development, and teaching at Helsinki University of Technology over 25 years and also started writing books. Later, I have worked as an author and consultant, in addition to employment periods at the Finnish Information Society Development Center (IT standardization) and at the Blue1 airline company (multilingual online sales and web site). My books in Finnish deal with programming languages (Fortran, Pascal, C), Unix, web publishing, HTML, CSS, data security, office document design and style, and web typography.

My motto is "Docendo disco, scribendo cogito"--by teaching I learn, by writing I think. I love to get deeper insight and wider understanding by formulating things for others, in a manner that is both understandable and informative, correct, and useful--a real challenge.

I'm an advocate of standardization, but with realism learned the hard way. I always try to promote relevant standards and consensus-based recommendations, but I also try to point out their shortcomings and problems in acceptance and in implementations.

You might find me on various discussion forums on the Internet, but I'm partly an old-timer who loved the good old Usenet, where I frequented in many web-related groups. I'm adapting to the new modes of communication, which are partly much more effective (like moderated e-mail lists and StackOverflow).
