Quality JavaScript from Scratch

Category: Articles, Books, JavaScript, Programming

Sitepoint recently posted an excerpt from their new book The JavaScript Anthology : 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks. Its a pretty weighty excerpt, coming out to four chapters and over eighty pages for the whole printable version. There is also a PDF version available, but you have to provide your email address to get the link via an annoying popup window, so I recommend the plain print copy.

Subjects covered include:

  • introduction to JavaScript including basic techniques, debugging, and practices
  • the DOM and javascript
  • frames, including popups, communicating between frames, and getting scrolling position
  • an introduction to basic DHTML for event handling, cursor detection, finding the size and position of an element, and more

It should be pointed out that what they are discussing here isn’t Javascript as much as it’s the use of Javascript as the behavioral glue within a browser…and that like many sites/books/tutorials, they continually confuse/combine things that can only serve to confuse a budding developer in the long run.
