PhantomJS Cookbook
PhantomJS Cookbook
Preis: EUR 13,69

4.0 von 5 Sternen totally worth it, with some minor cons, 15. Juli 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: PhantomJS Cookbook (Kindle Edition)
the book is possibly a bit TOO detailed when it comes to things like showing the version of the phantom.js installation in a lengthy way, but that's not really a negative point. i recommend having experience with node.js before opening this book, knowledge of phantom.js is not necessary but it helps a lot to take a short look at the phantom.js website for the first steps.
the book describes pretty much everything you would ever want to do with phantom.js, i guess (i would not know about anything that's missing). from the most simple website scraping and handling cookies in a detailed way to simulating image errors and unit testing with a strong focus on jasmine and whatnot. it is huge!

btw, the good stuff starts at chapter 3, before there are a lot of pages with basic node.js knowledge like how to create and use modules, or how to read and write from and to the file system. that's not really about phantom.js actually.

cons: the explanations are usually way too long. you can expect that the reader is familiar with programming in node.js, so it is not necessary to describe every single step and it just creates a lot more pages.
another con that's unimportant on a kindle but imho very important if you buy the real book or read the pdf: there is no syntax highlighting/coloring... :(

really great book with lots of recipes, suitable for beginners in phantomjs, but you should have some experience with node.js.

Getting Started with Backbone Marionette
Getting Started with Backbone Marionette
von Raymundo Armendariz
Preis: EUR 23,53

4.0 von 5 Sternen gets you started indeed, 28. April 2014
To fully understand this book, i recommend having a very good knowledge of JavaScript and you should know your way around Backbone. Marionette is not something completely new, it is an extension for Backbone.
Basically you are building a "book store" App during the book, and while i don't know if it covers everything you can do with Marionette, it is pretty expansive - especially for a book with only around 100 pages. I did not know Marionette before so i don't know if there is more to it, but it looks like every aspect of it is covered and it tells you exactly how to "divide and conquer" in bigger applications.
The sourcecode in the book could have been improved with some syntax highlighting, but i read most of the pages on my Kindle so i would not have seen any color anyway. Still, in my opinion this ist a must have for code.
It's well explained why and how Marionette makes sense to be used pretty much every time you want to use Backbone, and how you can extend (and organize) Backbone with it. You could just use Angular to get all the stuff you need (Routers, Controllers and whatnot) instead of using Marionette with a lot of dependencies, but that's just my opinion. If you like Backbone, there is no way around Marionette and this book will get you started perfectly fine. It's your only choice anyway, i don't know about any other Marionette book out there :)

-1 star because i like syntax highlighting. although, the code parts are usually small and easy to understand.

Getting Started with Grunt: The JavaScript Task Runner
Getting Started with Grunt: The JavaScript Task Runner
von Jaime Pillora
Preis: EUR 27,81

5.0 von 5 Sternen very useful, 5. März 2014
I did use Grunt for many projects before, but while reading this book it finally clicked in my brain. This is definitely a good buy for anything who just started with Grunt, but also for people who want to know what else they could do with that amazing "JavaScript Task Runner". The part about installing Node and Grunt should be moved to the very beginning imho, but that's alright. The book may look small with only 132 pages, but i don't miss any feature i may ever need. From installing Grunt, choosing/using the right plugins (htmlmin, cssmin, uglifyjs - to name the most important ones), creating advanced custom tasks to testing and continuous integration, you will not regret buying this book. It also makes sense to read it very carefully and not skip any part of it, there are many Links to useful resources spread all over the book. References to Douglas Crockford are a clear sign that the author knows what he is talking about :)
Btw, I recommend taking a closer look at "Gulp" too. In case you don't know it, that's another JS Task Runner with almost the same power as Grunt. There are way more plugins available for Grunt right now, but some people just prefer Gulp because it's easier to learn.

Backbone.js Patterns and Best Practices
Backbone.js Patterns and Best Practices
von Swarnendu De
Preis: EUR 31,30

5.0 von 5 Sternen definitely worth to buy for backbone devs!, 17. Februar 2014
The author writes that this book requires some basic knowledge of Backbone.js - well, i would say that he is correct.
You do need to understand the basic concepts, but i'd definitely suggest it to anyone who is working with Backbone and you don't need to be very experienced.

The book is not just about Patterns and Best Practices, the first half of it is more like a reference for Models, Views and Controllers. Which is good, because you don't need an extra book for that and it helped me a lot as Backbone beginner.
Skip the first half of the book if you feel like a pro in Backbone, but don't miss the second half because that's where you get a deep knowledge of how you should structure your apps, including Require.js and AMD modules.
You don't see separate recipe after recipe, which is good because every chapter fits together very well and explains all important aspects of Backbone.

So this is definitely worth to buy if you are interested in working with Backbone.js. Only Chapter 8 about unit testing is a bit too short in my opinion and i would have liked to see some testig with more professional frameworks like Jasmine or Mocha. But that's more of a personal taste.

HTML5 Data and Services Cookbook
HTML5 Data and Services Cookbook
von Gorgi Kosev
Preis: EUR 46,00

4.0 von 5 Sternen not bad, but only for more advanced users, 31. Dezember 2013
this book is not a reference about html5 data, it is merely a collection of useful javascript plugins for data handling and would not even necessarily need the "5" after "html" - but people are calling everything html5 nowadays, so whatever. beginners in web development should read at least one book about javascript design patterns and get fit with vanilla javascript first, because a lot of code in the book is made with jquery and while the code is understandable there is a lot of room for optimization (with jquery object caching, for example). but the author is using immediate functions, that's cool :)

all the tutorials start with a part called "getting ready", where you basically get to know what plugin the author used and where to download it. the second part is called "how to do it..." where all the code is shown, the third part ("how it works...") explains the code. sometimes there is also a "there is more..." part with some additional information.
i am not sure if that kind of separation is a good idea, it felt a bit weird but maybe because it was different to other books i read. the "getting ready" part in chapter 2 is pretty much the same for almost every "recipe" there, because the "flot" library is used for them. a lot of redundant text there is.

finally, i have to say that the book should not be used for "best practice" code, it's merely an overview of what's possible with javascript plugins nowadays, with a very strong focus on jquery. a collection of links that you can also just find with a simple google search. but it's a very large one, so for me it was nice to skim through the book to see what's possible with plugins. it really covers a LOT of different ways to deal with data.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wahnsinn..., 20. November 2008
= Spaßfaktor:4.0 von 5 Sternen 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Fallout 3 (Computerspiel)
als gelegenheitsspieler der an jedem spiel maximal 3 tage spass hat war dieses hier ein absoluter volltreffer. es stimmt einfach ALLES:
-) geniale grafik, auch wenn die weltuntergangs-stimmung auf dauer etwas öde wirkt. die zerstörte welt ist jedenfalls sehr gut umgesetzt
-) intelligente gegner, die sich auch mal verschanzen um nicht getroffen zu werden. und sie haben nicht unendlich munition, sondern müssen selbst auch nachladen (perfekt für einen angriff)
-) das kampfsystem ist extrem vielseitig. ich kann in egoshooter-manier herumlaufen und selbst schiessen, oder mit dem "V.A.T.S." meine "aktionspunkte" verbrauchen, indem ich bestimmte körperteile des gegners in aller ruhe auswähle und meinen charakter selbst schiessen lasse
-) die steuerung ist gut, springen ist manchmal etwas mühsam aber man brauchts nicht wirklich bzw. selten
-) ich habs relativ schnell durchgespielt, viele nebenquests nicht erledigt (bin halt ein gelegenheits-spieler). die spielzeit war aber trotzdem OK, und langweilig wurde es in keiner sekunde. ganz im gegenteil, es wurde sogar immer interessanter, vor allem wenn man dann mal mehr "Perks" hat.

5.0 von 5 Sternen besser als diese new-age-ipod-dinger, 13. August 2008
ich besitze den player schon seit vielen jahren, nach wie vor ist die akkulaufzeit beachtlich (über 10 stunden stunden schafft er locker, von den ursprünglich ca. 15 stunden).
selbst einen waschgang in der waschmaschine hat das gerät überlebt, beim verbinden über USB gibts null probleme, man braucht kein eigenes programm, es ist in den vielen jahren noch NIE abgestürzt, und relativ schnell über USB aufgeladen (akku, kann man aber austauschen, macht jedoch keinen sinn bei der laufzeit).
mitterlerweile natürlich viel zu wenig speicher mit 256MB, aber extrem flach und praktisch zum einstecken.
die mitgelieferten ohrhörer sind ok, aber da gibts für wenige euros wesentlich bessere.

= Spaßfaktor:1.0 von 5 Sternen 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Resident Evil 4: Wii edition (Videospiel)
für mich (sogar neben mario galaxy und zelda - twilight princess) das allerbeste spiel für nintendo wii. die steuerung ist unglaublich präzise (nach red steel hatte man ja horror-vorstellungen), die grafiken sind wii-untypisch qualitativ sehr hochwertig, die atmosphäre ist fesselnd und gruselig. mit diesem teil habe ich meine liebe zu resident evil wiedergewonnen, vor allem weil die steuerung erstmals wirklich brauchbar ist.
speichern kann man wie üblich nur per schreibmaschine, aber davon sind recht viele vorhanden.

2.0 von 5 Sternen kurzweilig, 13. August 2008
= Spaßfaktor:2.0 von 5 Sternen 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Eledees (Videospiel)
zu beginn ganz interessant, aber irgendwie macht man dann doch immer genau dasselbe. dinge hochheben/verschieben und auf die eledees schiessen. für kinder mag das vielleicht lustig sein, aber es wird nach sehr kurzer zeit (bei mir 10 minuten) langweilig.
gehofft hätte ich auf den multiplayer-part, aber:
-) es ist genau dasselbe sinnlose herumgeklicke, bei 4 spielern aber nur noch ein mega-chaos
-) man kann einfach nur alle levels spielen die bereits im singleplayer-modus gespielt wurden, also nix mit cooperative
