Everything you need to learn JavaScript from Scratch!

Packed with numerous examples, Simply JavaScript is a step-by-step introduction to programming in JavaScript the right way. Learn how easy it is to use JavaScript to solve real-world problems, build smarter forms, track user events (such as mouse clicks and key strokes), and design eye-catching animations. Then move into more powerful techniques using the DOM and Ajax.

  • Learn JavaScript's built-in functions, methods, and properties.
  • Easily integrate JavaScript in your web site.
  • Use JavaScript to validate form entries and interact with your users.
  • Understand how to respond to user events.
  • Create animations that bring your web site to life.
  • Start programming using the DOM and Ajax.

    Unlike other JavaScript books, modern best practices such as progressive enhancement, accessibility and unobtrusive scripting are used from the very beginning. All the code in the book is also cross-browser compatible and downloadable for free, so you can get started instantly!

    Comments about oreilly Simply JavaScript:

    Advertised as 'perfect for first-time JavaScript coders', this book is just that - an ideal starting point for those new to the language.

    It's packed with examples, and written in a great, friendly style, taking you from the initial concepts, best style for coding, moving onto event handlers, document access and then covering topics such as animation and form handling, finishing off with a section on Ajax, and the future of JavaScript.

    I've read a selection of other books on other programming languages, but found the style of this one to be the best I've come across. The examples are clear, and well explained, and the authors seem to really enjoy their topic.
