Book Description

JavaScript is an easy to use, flexible, dynamic prototype-based programming language predominantly used over the web. Although the initial focus of the language was to assist in the generation of dynamic web content, it has soon found its way into numerous other applications. This book aims to cover the fundamentals of the language by providing a strong start for people who wish to start their journey to JavaScript programming language. It provides the mandatory theoretical background which is much needed for implementation and the exhaustive hands-on exercises. The book comprises 4000+ lines of code for grasping maximum understanding.

  • A strong theoretical background and understanding of the working of the JavaScript language.
  • Hands-on and demo exercises at the end of every chapter
  • Exercises, theory-based questions, MCQs and true-false for helping the reader to evaluate their understanding from time to time
  • A dedicated chapter for providing extended case studies for using the language.

This book is targeted at undergraduate as well as postgraduate students who want to learn about front end programming or who wish to learn a lightweight, easy to use programming language for working on their project. For programmers having experience in other languages, it would serve as a quick summary to get a hold of a new language.
