About this Book

Get Programming with JavaScript is a book for beginners, for those with no programming experience. It makes extensive use of online code listings on the JS Bin website, a sandbox where you can experiment with the code and see the results instantly. There’s no setup or installation required; if you’ve got internet access, you can just get programming straight away. If you don’t have internet access, don’t worry, the printed listings include helpful annotations, and all the ideas are explained in the text.

In addition to shorter examples to illustrate the concepts covered, there is an ongoing example—a text-based adventure game called The Crypt—that you build as you progress through the book.
