I began developing in JavaScript just over a year ago. The company I'm working for had announced a brand new product that was to be web-based, and with not a single web developer on our team, I took the initiative to completely immerse myself in web application architecture. I started, like many others, with JavaScript: The Good Parts. After devouring that, it was time to understand how large-scale JavaScript applications might be constructed. It was around that time that I discovered JavaScript Web Applications by Alex MacCaw. The book begins with a primer on the MVC pattern and how it applies to JavaScript, and takes the reader through a pretty easy read on other important topics like events, models, state, client-side templating, dependency management, and other very relevant topics.
