JavaScript Patterns
JavaScript Patterns
by Stoyan Stefanov
Edition: Paperback
Price: 15.63

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books ever written about JavaScript!, 28 Aug 2011
This review is from: JavaScript Patterns (Paperback)
First I have to mention that this book is NOT for beginners! The author adresses advanced JavaScript topics and goes deeper in about what's going on behind the scenes of your JavaScript code. What do you create behind the scenes when you create an empty object or function. How to write maintainable and fast code, what is currying, the module pattern, chaining (like the jQuery library), ... After reading JavaScript: the definitive guide and John Resig's Pro JavaScript techniques, this is the perfect book in line!

Thanks Stoyan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference for medium JavaScript developers, 10 Jan 2011
After reading JavaScript: The Definitive Guide and Learning jQuery 1.3, Pro JavaScript Techniques was exactly what I needed. John Resig guides you through the more professional JavaScript techniques and standards, combined with great tools for debugging and testing.

Can't wait for his new release: JavaScript Ninja! (July 1, 2011)

Top!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginners of CodeIgniter, 15 Aug 2010
I enjoyed reading and learning this book. It is for me the best book to get started with CodeIgniter along with the user guide on the CodeIgniter website.

I do miss a book with advanced techniques using CodeIgniter, so if anybody can give me a hint?

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners!!!, 9 Feb 2010
I bought this book to learn JavaScript as a beginner but appearantly this was a bad idea. This is absolute not a book for beginners! However due the good comments about this book from JavaScript programmers, I don't regret buying this book to take a look next year when I know the basic principles of JavaScript!

PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy
PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy
by David Powers
Edition: Paperback
Price: 24.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book so far, 4 Jan 2010
This book takes you through the first steps of programming like it is nothing. I have read some books of PHP and MySQL and PHP Solutions is by far the best book. Easy to read/understand! 5 stars and an award for David Powers!

Also this book has a good binding and stays open by itself. It is pretty frustrating when a book doesn't stay open by itself when reading, or typing code.

I just ordered his second book about OOP!
