Learn JavaScript Once, Use it Over and Over Again...

Even though JavaScript is by far the most popular client side programming language in use today, it can and is used on the server side as well. Node.js, Meteor, Wakanda, CouchDB, and MongoDB are just a few examples of where you'll find and be able to use JavaScript on the server side. The time you invest in learning JavaScript can be doubly rewarding as JavaScript keeps moving into more and more areas of computing. 

If you're looking to level up your career, JavaScript is an invaluable skill to to have.

JavaScript skills are in high demand and they need for people who can program JavaScript will only increase. If you're looking to break into a tech job, what better skill to have on your resume than something that can be used practically anywhere? 

Want to work on the "front-end" of websites? Learn JavaScript. 

Ready to tackle back-end programming for network intensive web apps? Learn JavaScript. 

Want to work on the latest database technologies available today? Then learn JavaScript. 

Learn JavaScript the right way - once and for all...

No matter if you plan to use JavaScript on the client side in a web browser, on the server side, or both, you will need to learn the fundamentals of the language. That’s what this book will give you. When you finish reading this book you will feel comfortable and confident programming in the JavaScript language. 

Here is just some of what you'll learn when you read JavaScript Programming: 

How to setup your computer -- including the exact tools and software you'll need -- to start programming in JavaScript today.

Sample text:


JavaScript is the most widely used client-side scripting language that is both really powerful and dynamic. Some of the other popular client-side scripting languages include VBScript and Python. Client-side scripting languages are used to make your websites more interactive, lively, and responsive.

You should never confuse Java with JavaScript. JavaScript is a scripting language, whereas Java is a complex programming language. In fact, the syntax of JavaScript is very much related to that of the C programming language. In 1995, Brenden Eich developed JavaScript. Back then, the language was officially known as ActionScript and appeared in the Netscape browser, which was the popular browser of that time.

You can use JavaScript to help users better interact with Web pages. JavaScript can also be used to control the browser, communicate asynchronously with the server, alter the Web page content dynamically, and to develop games and mobile and desktop applications.

By the end of this book, you will know how to:

Configure your environment for JavaScript programming

Create variables and arrays to store data

Perform mathematical and logical operations

Create functions

Save and retrieve cookies

Deal with Document Object Model (DOM)

Make practical use of Object-Oriented Programming
