About the book
This book has been written for programmers, by a programmer. In order to understand it, you should already know object-oriented programming, for example, via a mainstream programming language such as Java, PHP, C++, Python, Ruby, Objective-C, Swift, C#, or Perl.
About the author
Axel has been programming since 1985 and developing web applications since 1995. In 1999, he was technical manager at a German Internet startup that later expanded internationally. In 2006, he held his first talk on Ajax.
★★★★★ For beginners and pros
Reads like a good novel. Very comprehensive.
★★★★★ Fantastic new book (especially for people who can already code in another language)
Fantastic book. The format has short sample code following each explanation, and that is EXTREMELY HELPFUL. In addition, the language is very precise. The best JS book I have seen for existing programmers who already know another language.
