Monday, 27 June 2022

In this book, subtitled "Write Programs, Publish Packages, and Develop Interactive Websites with JavaScript", Michael Hartl teaches the specific concepts, skills, and approaches you need to be professionally productive. Treating JavaScript as a general-purpose language right from the start, Hartl offers examples for creating dynamic effects in browsers and for writing scripts and modules using Node.js. Focused exercises help you internalize what matters, without wasting time on details pros don't care about.
