Kurzbeschreibung

We've assembled seven of the greatest minds in modern JavaScript to teach you the most inspirational techniques you'll ever use. From creating impressive mashups and stunning, dynamic graphics, to more subtle user-experience enhancements, you're about to be amazed by the true potential of this powerful language.

With an all star line-up of authors including James Edwards, Michael Mahemoff, Ara Pehlivanian, Cameron Adams, Dan Webb, Christian Heilmann, and Simon Willison, this superb book will show you how to:


Create a slick Google Maps and Flickr mashup. Build your own fully accessible 3D maze. Create stunning vector graphics using the canvas element. Have some fun with draggable and sortable table columns. Give your site some extra personality with client-side badges. Write better code faster using metaprogramming techniques. Become a debugging expert using pro-level Firebug tricks.

Presented in full color, all of the books solutions are cross-browser and cross-platform compatible. Best of all, all the code used in the book is available for you to download and experiment with.
Who Should Read This Book?

This book is targeted at intermediate JavaScript developers who want to take their JavaScript skills to the next level without sacrificing web accessibility or best practice.

If you have even a small amount of experience with JavaScript, and are comfortable enough programming in another language such as PHP or Java, you'll be just fine - we'll hold your hand along the way, and all of the code is available for you to download and experiment with on your own.

About the Authors

Cameron has a degree in law and one in science; naturally he chose a career in Web development. When pressed, he labels himself a "Web Technologist" because he likes to have a hand in graphic design, JavaScript, CSS, Perl (yes, Perl), and anything else that takes his fancy that morning. While running his own business (www.themaninblue.com) he's consulted and worked for government departments, nonprofit organisations, large corporations and tiny startups.
As well as helping his list of clients, Cameron has taught numerous workshops around the country and spoken at conferences worldwide, such as @Media and Web Essentials. He has also written a book &emdash; The JavaScript Anthology &emdash; which is one of the most complete question and answer resources on modern JavaScript techniques.

JAMES EDWARDS is a Nortel Networks Certified Support Specialist (NNCSS) in VPN Routers. His experience includes work with some of Nortel's largest enterprise customers.

RICHARD BRAMANTE, also a Nortel Networks Certified Support Specialist (NNCSS), has been in Nortel VPN Router support for three years, and was a technology lead on the Instant Internet.

AL MARTIN is a technical writer with 15 years of experience in electro-mechanical and computer-related disciplines.

Christian Heilmann grew up in Germany and, after a year working with people with disabilities for the red cross, he spent a year as a radio producer. From 1997 he worked for several agencies in Munich as a web developer. In 2000 he moved to the States to work for Etoys and, after the .com crash, he moved to the UK where he currently works as a lead developer for Agilisys. He publishes an almost daily blog at http://wait-till-i.com and runs an article repository at http://icant.co.uk. He is a member of the Web Standards Project's DOM Scripting Task Force.

Dan Webb is a web application developer and renowned JavaScript expert who has spoken at @media 2006, RailsConf Europe, and The Ajax Experience; written for A List Apart and Sitepoint; and is a member of UK web design group the Brit Pack. More recently, he's written the Low Pro extension for Prototype, coauthored the Unobtrusive JavaScript plug-in, and become a member of the newly formed Prototype Core Team.

Simon Willison is a seasoned web developer from the UK. He is the co-creator of the Django web framework and a long-time proponent of unobt

4.0 von 5 Sternen Artfully scientific 1. Februar 2008
Von Tommy Olsson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a very interesting book for anyone who is interested in going to the 'next level' of JavaScript. It's not a book for absolute beginners, but everything is very well explained without wasting time on trivia.

The chapter on metaprogramming (self-modifying code) is my favourite. Not only because it presents some very useful ideas, but also because it finally made me understand how JavaScript does certain things under the bonnet.

James Edward's Maze game is nothing short of a-maze-ing. It's a fine example of what you can do if you have the ability to think outside the box. (Way outside, in this case!)

The only negative part is the first chapter. Not because it's not useful -- it is! -- and not because it's badly written -- it isn't. The reason is that the code samples use XHTML markup but the JavaScript code will not work if that markup is served as real XHTML. The JavaScript relies on the HTML DOM, e.g., that nodeName properties are returned in uppercase. The use of character entity references is also ill-advised for XHTML.

Unfortunately, there isn't any informtion about this in the text. Someone who isn't well-versed in the fundamental differences between HTML and XHTML would learn some harmful practices.

The sad part is that it would have been so easy to write the JavaScript in a way that would have worked in both the HTML DOM and the XML DOM.

The remainder of the book contains good code examples which don't sacrifice accessibility.

Having said that, I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn how to use JavaScript for something other than validating form input.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Solid Learning Experience 3. Februar 2008
Von Brett Merkey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
§

I saw a bunch of things I *wanted* to criticize about this book but ended up being more positive as I began to see the educational value of the chapters. This book is not for absolute beginners by any means, however the material is presented in a smooth way as each script addition is explained separately.

Do NOT expect to come away from the book's chapters with code that can be immediately applied to a typical professional application or Web site. Things like a JavaScripted maze game can be great for learning some cool things but that is all.

Even the practical-sounding features like table column sorting and table column dragging could not be applied to a production situation without considerable modification. For instance, the column dragging scenario depends on all columns having similar width. If not, then the result is pretty messy. And we all know that data tables can be messy in the best of cases!

The index is miserable, but that is pretty much the rule for computer tech books.

The ensemble of authors is top-notch and some, like Christian Heilmann, (Beginning JavaScript with DOM Scripting and Ajax: From Novice to Professional) have written excellent books you may want to check out. You really can't go wrong with this book for a solid advance in your script education.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ask Felgall - Book Review 20. November 2011
Von Stephen Chapman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Each of the seven chapters in this book was written by a different author who provides you with an example project where they demonstrate some of the more advanced tasks that JavaScript can perform. Some of these projects are useful in themselves while others serve more to illustrate particular coding techniques but in all seven chapters you are presented with ways of using JavaScript that are not all that obvious to most JavaScript programmers.

This book doesn't present JavaScript the way most people use it, it presents JavaScript the way that it could (and to some extent probably should) be used. While some of the example tasks are not all that useful in themselves, the code used to achieve those tasks demonstrates what can be achieved with a proper understanding of JavaScript. While JavaScript gives the appearance of being fairly similar to a number of other languages, the way that it really works is quite different and the examples in this book make it really clear what some of these differences are.

I do not necessarily agree with the ways that some of the examples have been coded (there are some parts I would have written differently) but then as the first author indicates, there are multiple ways of coding many of the things that can be done with JavaScript. There are also some coding examples included that have me wondering why I didn't think of doing it that way.

For anyone with a moderate level of programming experience this book will provide the opportunity to raise your JavaScript programming skills to the next level.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Art and Science Mashup 17. Mai 2008
Von Christopher V. Treen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As identified by the previous reviewers as one of those people wanting to take my Javascript to the next level, I am finding this book just right.

Just enough code to help me along (note: Not all code is in the book, no CD, but can be downloaded), with enough explanations that leave me space to think, i.e. not all spoon fed. The style is free and easy to read, put down, and come back to later after having thought about it for a while.

I originally bought it because of the Google Maps mashup in the last chapter, but have avidly read the others too. Although some rely on information in previous chapters, most can be read as stand-alone projects.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Good reference. 21. April 2014
Von Timothy Lusk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I had this book in my library for a few years. It was a great source and learning tool when I needed to solution to the problem at hand. If you're one to collect and build physical libraries for your office, it's a good one to have.
