Product Description

JavaScript is the ubiquitous programming language of the Web, and for more than 15 years, JavaScript: The Definitive Guide has been the bible of JavaScript programmers around the world. Ideal for JavaScript developers at any level, this book is an all-new excerpt of The Definitive Guide, collecting the essential parts of that hefty volume into this slim yet dense pocket reference.

The first 9 chapters document the latest version (ECMAScript 5) of the core JavaScript language, covering:

  • Types, values, and variables
  • Operators, expressions, and statements
  • Objects and arrays
  • Functions and classes

The next 5 chapters document the fundamental APIs for using JavaScript with HTML5 and explain how to:

  • Interact with web browser windows
  • Script HTML documents and document elements
  • Modify and apply CSS styles and classes
  • Respond to user input events
  • Communicate with web servers
  • Store data locally on the user's computer

This book is a perfect companion to jQuery Pocket Reference.

This is a small slightly off A6 sized book about 1.5 cm thick.
It contains a huge volume of reference information for JavaScript and is ideal to carry round for those times when it's not possible or practical to use the net. It sits as a good companion volume to the much larger Definitive Guide to Javascript by the same author.

4.0 out of 5 stars completely different to the last issue 28 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Doesn't have the quick reference of built in javascript objects that the old version came with, but does have a whole lot more on modern javascript.

4.0 out of 5 stars little reference wonder 13 May 2013
By Alfy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this is a small book, real pocket-size, so it has obvious limitations of size, nonetheless is one of the most comprehensive java reference imaginable, included are all the main features of the language in an easy to find organization
Also amazing how any given topic is explored in details, notwithstanding the lack of space.
A must for any java practitioner especially if a beginner like me.
I give it 4 stars just for the small size, but really it would be very hard to write a better reference within this format.
