about this item

There are lots of reasons to learn how to program—to gain valuable skills that are versatile, useful, stimulating, rewarding, and in demand. JavaScript is one of the most widely-used languages and is the ideal first language to get started on the road to programming; it allows for the development of applications for all sorts of uses, devices, platforms, and operating systems. The only thing stopping many people is that they think it might be painful or they don't know where to start. Good news—learning to program with JavaScript can be fun!

Get Programming with JavaScript is a hands-on introduction to programming for readers who have never programmed. It uses interactive code samples, carefully-paced explanations, supporting video tutorials, and a wide variety of examples. From the get-go, readers will be writing code by using a browser-based sandbox where they can experiment and test their code. Throughout the book, they'll be developing a text-based adventure game, learning how to combine simple elements to create large programs. Upon finishing the book, readers will not only know how to program, they'll be thinking like a programmer and ready to use their skills to create new applications.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
