JavaScript -- The Definitive Guide (A Quick Review)

Webpages are growing to be more interactive in every form and feature. To enable this requirement, JavaScript is the most essential form of interactivity that any developer can think upon. For those beginners and advance programmers alike, having a good handy JavaScript reference for a quick lookup is normally a great boon. I just thought I would share a book which fills this gap.

JavaScript -- The Definitive Guide by David Flanagan (Oreilly Publishers)

The book is really impressive and innovative in bringing any one to levels and then enhancing their standards since it has a defined approach mentioned in the Table of Contents:

  1. General Introduction to the Language like constructs, loops etc.
  2. Interoperability with Web Browsers
  3. Utility functions
    1. Page Validation
    2. DHTML Effects
    3. Data Persistence using Cookies
  4. Introduction to AJAX
  5. Client Side Graphics using SVG, CSS and VML
  6. Interoperability with other technologies like Flash and ActiveX

The book has a simple language with which it progresses and hence makes the developer feel comfortable in going through the same.

You can simply get pages of the book for preview from Google Books. Once you are satisfied, grab a copy of the book from either Amazon.com or your local bookshop.
