Book overview

JavaScript is the language of the Web. It has an intuitive, accessible nature and is available with most modern browsers. JavaScript is used for making dynamic, interactive Web pages - from form validation to creating games to dynamic menus - but its uses also go much further. Hardly a single commercial Web page exists today that does not contain some JavaScript.

The second edition of Professional JavaScript provides comprehensive coverage of the JavaScript language, its syntax and uses. It examines the latest Web browsers and Web standards, and moves on to examine practical techniques in the form of short examples and more in-depth and complex case studies. This book will focus entirely on the use of JavaScript within the Web browser, since this is predominantly where it is used.
