JavaScript used to be notoriously difficult to work with. Everything had to be written from scratch, every browser worked differently, and common development niceties like debuggers didn’t exist. Now JavaScript has all of the tools that developers need. Libraries like jQuery, AngularJS, Backbone.js and Ember.js make it easier to support a wide variety of browsers. Unit testers like Yui Test and QUnit make it possible to write rock solid, tested code. And all modern browsers included a suite of developer tools to ease the pains of building web apps.

We have chosen in this bibliography a selection of JavaScript books that can take you from newbie all the way to ninja. Begin by learning the basics and best practices. Once you are comfortable, move onto more advanced topics like unit testing, performance enhancements, and design patterns. Learn how libraries like AngularJS, Backbone.js, Ember.js and jQuery can increase your productivity. Step into the fast growing world of mobile development with web frameworks like jQuery Mobile and cross-platform frameworks like PhoneGap. And finally, go full circle with JavaScript on the server with Node.js. With JavaScript you can create dynamic websites for desktop and mobile browsers, create fast and efficient servers, and build apps to sell for nearly every smartphone market place. JavaScript’s popularity is poised for continued growth and this bibliography can help you to grow your JavaScript skills.
