Synopsis

So you're ready to make the leap from writing HTML and CSS web pages to creating dynamic web applications. You want to take your web skills to the next level. And you're finally ready to add "programmer" to the resume. It sounds like you're ready to learn the Web's hottest programming language: JavaScript. "Head First JavaScript" is your ticket to going beyond copying and pasting the code from someone else's web site, and writing your own interactive web pages. With "Head First JavaScript", you learn: the basics of programming, from variables to types to looping; how the web browser runs your code, and how you can talk to the browser with your code; why you'll never have to worry about casting, overloading, or polymorphism when you're writing JavaScript code; and, how to use the Document Object Model to change your web pages without making your users click buttons.If you've ever read a "Head First" book, you know what to expect - a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. "Head First JavaScript" is no exception.

It starts where HTML and CSS leave off, and takes you through your first program into more complex programming concepts - like working directly with the web browser's object model and writing code that works on all modern browsers. Don't be intimidated if you've never written a line of code before! In typical "Head First" style, "Head First JavaScript" doesn't skip steps, and we're not interested in having you cut and paste code. You'll learn JavaScript, understand it, and have a blast along the way. So get ready...dynamic and exciting web pages are just pages away.

Format: Taschenbuch
Gleich im Anschluß an die Lektüre von "Head First HTML" las ich "Head First JavaScript", mein bisher fünftes und leider auch schlechtestes Head First-Buch. Gleich von Anfang an unangenehm aufgefallen ist mir die Tatsache, daß der Aufbau der Themen nicht besonders optimal gestaltet wurde. Der Autor fällt dem Leser gleich mit Event-Handling und dem Aufruf von Methoden auf Objekten ins Haus, ohne diesen Techniken vorher ein Kapitel gewidmet zu haben. Ich hätte mir gewünscht, daß die Grundlagen zuerst erklärt werden, bevor damit gearbeitet wird, was eigentlich die Grundvoraussetzung für alle Head First-Bücher sein sollte (und nicht nur für diese). Das Kapitel über Objekte kam jedenfalls viel zu weit hinten (als Java-Entwickler bin ich zwar mit Objekten vertraut, aber wäre ich es nicht, hätte ich bei einigen Beispielen das Nachsehen gehabt, was das Verständnis angeht). Die beiden Kapitel über if-Abfragen und Schleifen sind viel zu lang geworden, dabei sind weder if-Abfragen noch Schleifen besonders schwer zu verstehen, weshalb man diese Techniken selbst für JavaScript-Neulinge auf wesentlich weniger Seiten hätte unterbringen können. Warum der Autor dafür über 100 Seiten verbraten hat, ist mir ein Rätsel. Ebenfalls ein Rätsel ist das Kapitel über Debugging und Troubleshooting, denn den Inhalt dieses Kapitels könnte man auf einige wenige Seiten zusammenkürzen. Mir scheint, daß man hier versucht hat, das Buch zu strecken.
Es gibt aber auch Gutes zu vermelden, denn diverse Grundlagen wie Variablen instanziieren, Browser-Daten auslesen, Funktionen aufrufen und reguläre Ausdrücke erzeugen wurden anschaulich und leicht verständlich in Szene gesetzt.

3 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von C. Gmbh am 5. Juni 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Das Buch ist sehr gut aufgebaut und ermöglicht auf eine einfache Art und Weise das Lernen von JavaScript. HTML und CSS Kenntnisse sind zwar nicht zwingend nötig, schaden aber der Lernkurve nicht. Aber wer kommt schon in die Verlegenheit JScript zu lernen, wenn er nicht gerade am Aufbau von Webseiten ist...
Die Beispiele sind hervorragend dokumentiert, ohne Lücken und lassen sich sehr gut nachvollziehen bzw. nachprogrammieren. Es werden auch nicht wie in anderen Büchern bei den Beispielen Klassen vorausgesetzt, die man selbst implementieren muss (oder von der Homepage des Buches runterladen muss) damit die Beispiele laufen. Es ist alles genauso in dem Buch wie es dann auch später im Programm sein soll.
Zwei Dinge haben mich gestört:
Mit der Zeit wird es etwas mühselig, immer wieder die Comicartige Struktur mit den gleichen Bildern zu folgen.
Das zweite ist, das alles bei Adam und Eva beginnt. Für Quereinsteiger aus anderen Sprachen ist es wirklich nur bedingt zu empfehlen.
Jeder der JScript als erste Sprache lernt: zugreifen, es lohnt sich!

Format: Taschenbuch
Ich habe nach einem guten Buch fuer JavaScript gesucht. Ich bin neulich mit einem Informatikfernstudium begonnen, hatte aber keine Vorkenntnisse und es viel mir schwer alles in dem erwarteten Tempo zu lernen. Fuer JavaScript hatten wir auch kein Buch, nur ein Handbuch des Professors, das eher eine Zusammenfassung war, und viel zu wening Erklaerung fuer mich.

Das war also mein erstes Head First Buch, ich habe inzwischen aber auch HTML gekauft und werde sicher weitere Titel dieser Serie kaufen. Durch die vielen Zeichnungen und Schemen faellt es ueberhaupt nicht schwer dieses Buch zu lesen und den Stoff zu verstehen. Ich muss mich nicht zwingen um weiterzulesen, es macht so viel Spass, dass ich mich gerne Abends nach der Arbeit hinsetze um weiter zu lesen.

A good book, but not all it could be. 5. Februar 2008
Von J. Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Let me begin by saying that Head First Javascript is a good book, at least compared to any other JS books I've seen. It isn't, however, a particularly good "Head First" book.

What I mean by this is that the other Head First books I've used (XHTML & CSS, SQL, and C#) have been highly interactive, easy to use, and really got the concepts into my head. I was amazed that, after just a few days with these books, I could actually build professional-looking web pages that were rigorously standards compliant; or create complex applications in C# quickly and easily; or navigate the intricacies of building and using SQL databases. The Head First method certainly seemed to work.

So when I heard the HF people were producing a JS book, I was overjoyed. Sadly, it's been a bit of a letdown. The book smacks strongly of rushed production, lacking many of the features that makes the HF series special. For example, in the C# book, the authors take the reader through application construction in a step-by-step manner, carefully explaining everything as they go. The effect is of a very knowledgeable teacher standing over your shoulder and guiding you while you code. The reader is actively involved in every exercise, building their code from scratch. There are copies of every piece of code available for download at Head First's website, but these are merely tools for checking the reader's work.

In the Javascript book, however, much of the interactivity is missing. The book reads like a walkthrough of the code samples, with most of the user participation taking the form of pencil and paper exercises. The reader could actually complete the book without switching on her PC. Even the code solutions on the HF website seem to be just tossed up there, with the page numbers each example refers to contained in a Read Me file (the book itself just contains a general instruction to grab the code from the website, without any indication of which code).

This all sounds pretty negative, and I must confess to being somewhat disappointed with the book. That said, it's still far superior to any other JS book I've tried. By the end of Head First Javascript, I did feel that the general scope of Javascript had sunk into my brain. I had a feeling for its overall structure and the ways in which it could be applied. I know that I can now tackle a more advanced JS book and absorb the concepts much more easily.

What I don't feel is ready to sit down and write Javascript. The whole experience with this book was just too fragmentary and too lopsidedly didactic. The experience was insufficiently hands-on to enable me to become comfortable with the nitty gritty of JS scripting. When I finished HF's C#, XHTML, and SQL books, I could sit down and churn out code, with only a few O'Reilly Pocket Guides beside me to refresh my memory on syntax and structure. That's not been the case with Javascript.

Head First Javascript just seems to lack the "stickiness" of the other titles in the series.

Great introduction to Javascript but not a reference book 20. Januar 2008
Von tl32 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The first headfirst book I read was the HTML one and I have been hooked ever since. I took a class in javascript last semester and was hoping this book would come out before finals but alas that didn't happen. Anyways, I got this book when it first came out and I have been going through it since. Here are my observations

Pros: 1)The pacing is well-balanced. For those with no experience in programming they slowly but surely introduce you to if statements, variables, loops, functions, and arrays. Ch 7 and 8 hit the sweet spot in terms of usefulness and ease of learning. The book gets more challenging at the end but by that time I was ready for the topics they introduced.
2) Chapter 7 is definitely my favorite chapter of the book. It introduced me to a much more efficient way of data editing/validation. I had always used indexof but this chapter introduced me to regular expressions and they ROCKED my world! A very practical and useful chapter.
3) The code examples- The examples they use in the book are very relevant to what you might actually use on your own website. Each chapter introduced the code layer by layer so as to not overwhelm me with its complexity
4) Attention to detail- As I read the book, I often had unanswered questions and then a couple of pages later the author would answer it. If there was function or object I wasn't familiar with, it would be explained with the pencil writing.
5) The FUN Factor! The code examples they use like the choose your own adventure in ch.8 are very creative and interesting. Some might consider the humor sophomoric but a young college student like myself appreciated it.

Cons: 1) This is not a reference book. That's a double edged sword depending on what you are looking for though. This book is a great starting off point for beginners and by the end I felt I had become very proficient in javascript. Even though this book will be my main guide for Javascript, I know there is still more for me to learn and I'll probably buy that Oreilly book with the rhino on the cover.

Bottom line: If you are taking a class in javascript or want to know how to make your web pages more interactive, this is a great introduction to javascript. Even though I still got an A, I know I could really have used this book last semester in my javascript class.

Frustratingly backwards 15. August 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I liked the Headfirst HTML/XHTML/CSS book, but I found this one poorly organized and discouraging. The exercises frequently required knowledge of concepts that had not yet been introduced. And I found the extended examples used in the book (such as an unrealistic and complicated movie theatre "seat finding" dealeo) unnecessarily confusing.

After starting it several times and struggling through 300 or so pages I broke down and bought The Book of Javascript (2nd ed) by David Thau. I'm much happier: good clear explanations from the get go, and a focus on javascript as actually used in the world.

Compared to Head First HTML, a BIG disappointment 21. Juli 2008
Von Jeffrey J. Federman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Short version: Very disappointed by Head First JavaScript ("HFJS"). Loved Head First HTML/XHTML/CSS ("HFHTML"), felt like I retained everything from it immediately, but couldn't figure out why the info in HFJS wasn't sinking in. Turned to web tutorials (better), and finally changed to Simply JavaScript(Sitepoint), a much more clearly written and explained book.

Long version: Less than a month ago, I knew very little about web design, much less any sort of programming. I'd tried to teach myself HTML from a rather dry text perhaps ten years ago, but nothing stuck. But I had a desire to give it another go, and set about finding another HTML book. I settled on HFHTML -- while it took many more pages to explain concepts which other books treated succinctly, the writing was much better in the Head First volume and I guessed I'd retain more from it.

It turned out to be a fantastic purchase, I devoured the book and within a week or so became proficient enough at HTML and CSS to code some complex site layouts. Since my latest site required dynamic behavior, JavaScript seemed like the logical next step. Given my positive experience (almost miraculous) with the HFHTML book, my first choice for a JavaScript book was HFJS. The many positive reviews on Amazon reinforced my decision.

When it arrived, I eagerly began from the beginning, skipping nothing (just as I'd done w/HFHTML). Did the quizzes, the crosswords, but from the beginning, things were a little off. In HFHTML, the authors show you where and how to introduce new code in your example pages, but in HFJS, it wasn't even clear whether you were supposed to be coding along, or merely just reading the book's examples. And while HFHTML proceeded very logically from basic to more advanced concepts, HFJS appeared to be veering all over the place. I persisted for 250 pages, but had to admit to myself that none of it was sinking in.

I turned to some web tutorials (better), and finally, purchased Simply Javascript (Sitepoint). While it is not a perfect book, either, I think it explains JavaScript more clearly than HFJS, and is better about starting the beginner off with good coding habits, such as keeping JavaScript code in separate files, rather than in the header of the HTML document (something which HFJS doesn't do). It also cuts to the chase of what most aspiring web designers want to use JavaScript for, which is dynamically modifying the content of pages via the Document Object Model ("DOM").

To be fair to the HFJS author, JavaScript is a SIGNIFICANTLY harder language to learn than HTML or CSS. And HFJS does a good job introducing and explaining the types of JavaScript data (e.g., text, boolean, number). But HFJS overall was a disappointment, and doesn't live up to the high standards set with HFHTML.

Finally, a different approach to teaching JavaScript. 12. Januar 2008
Von Mfragin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I pre-ordered this book on the strong reputation this line of books has. I like the Head First Java, 2nd Edition book, and still believe their Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML book is the best book there is for learning "smart" XHTML and CSS at the same time--whereas many books have NOT handled that balance well.

I sponsor a high school computer programming club and my students had me pre-order this book for them, as they loved the Head First HTML book and felt this would be their best bet at really understanding JavaScript.

JavaScript is a strange language to teach. Although you want to teach the basics of programming, you also want to have early exciting examples that show its possibilities when embedded in a web page. This book does about as well as can be done in one book, with sections on loops, decision making, de-bugging, functions and objects for those new to programming. Then there are also chapters on the most common uses of JavaScript, including, of course, forms and validation.

If you're familiar with the Head First approach, you will find this book to fit in perfectly with their other titles. This is the kind of book you buy, highlight, and write in. Active learning. This is not a reference book.
