Editorial Reviews

From the Author

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.

Welcome to a nicer way to learn JavaScript & jQuery.

Are you new to JavaScript, or have you added scripts to your web page but want a better idea of how they work? Then this book is for you. We'll not only show you how to read and write JavaScript, but we'll also teach you the basics of computer programming in a simple, visual way. All you need is an understanding of HTML and CSS.

This book will teach you how to make your websites more interactive, engaging, and usable. It does this by combining programming theory with examples that demonstrate how JavaScript and jQuery are used on popular sites. In no time at all you will be able to think and code like a programmer.
