In an effort to try to eventually program on the Android platform, I thought it would be a good thing to learn JavaScript. I know a little bit about Java but haven't done anything with JS before. I'm not that great of a programmer but I've done a little with Java, MATLAB/Octave, C, Arduino (C++ variant), LabView, and am dabbling in Python. I decided to try this book out because I wanted to learn JS. Well, this works well if you program in the .NET world but for people like me, that wasn't very good. There were a few basics at the beginning of the book that help get one going but it's not really much help in really learning the language. Full Review  >

This book explains the limitations of javascript, do’s and don’t’s. Basics of Javascript are introduced in the Chapter-2. If you are a developer who work on Microsoft Technologies, buy this book, otherwise don’t. The book name is Learn Javascript, however after reading the book, I found out that, this book is not an out and out Javascript book. The basics of the Javascript are introduced. Then the author jumps into jQuery. This book provides good introduction to Javascript and jQuery. Full Review  >
