Description

Today, JavaScript is radically different and more powerful than ever. In an environment where user interfaces are increasingly web-based, it’s become the “lingua franca” of the web browser. Frameworks such as Electron and platforms like AWS Lambda are extending its power even further. If you’re moving to JavaScript, you need to learn modern JavaScript, but most guides still focus on legacy techniques. In Modern JavaScript for the Impatient, best-selling author Cay Horstmann offers a concise, complete, and practical introduction to today’s JavaScript techniques and tools, and shows how to avoid pitfalls from the past. Horstmann shows students how to take full advantage of the Standard Library, modern JavaScript tools, asynchronous and web programming, and much more. Students will find especially valuable coverage of toolchains and frameworks, which often baffle JavaScript newcomers. As in Core Java® SE 9 for the Impatient, Horstmann covers plenty of ground, but he presents his techniques in small chunks organized for quick access and easy understanding. This is JavaScript for the projects your students are starting now – and those they'll be seeing tomorrow.
