Publisher's Summary

Tired of trying to learn how to program? Ready to actually learn how to program?
If you've attempted to learn how to program in the past, but hadn't had much success then give JavaScript Programming a try. It will teach you exactly what you need to know about programming in the world's most widely used scripting language in existence today. It will start you at the beginning and allow you to build upon what you've learned along the way.
Learn JavaScript Once, Use it Over and Over Again...
Even though JavaScript is by far the most popular client side programming language in use today, it can and is used on the server side as well. Node.js, Meteor, Wakanda, CouchDB, and MongoDB are just a few examples of where you'll find and be able to use JavaScript on the server side. The time you invest in learning JavaScript can be doubly rewarding as JavaScript keeps moving into more and more areas of computing.
If you're looking to level up your career, JavaScript is an invaluable skill to have.
JavaScript skills are in high demand and they need for people who can program JavaScript will only increase. If you're looking to break into a tech job, what better skill to have on your resume than something that can be used practically anywhere?
Want to work on the "front-end" of websites? Learn JavaScript.
Ready to tackle back-end programming for network intensive web apps? Learn JavaScript.
Want to work on the latest database technologies available today? Then learn JavaScript.
Learn JavaScript the right way - once and for all...
No matter if you plan to use JavaScript on the client side in a web browser, on the server side, or both, you will need to learn the fundamentals of the language. That's what this book will give you. When you finish reading this book you will feel comfortable and confident programming in the JavaScript language.

Don't wast your credits on this book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book was not made to be listened to. The reader is just spitting code out loud
which just impossible to follow without actually seeing the code on a screen/page.

Would you ever listen to anything by Preston Prescott again?

Sure. Just not a programming book.

Great attempt at teaching programing

What made the experience of listening to JavaScript Programming the most enjoyable?

I'm trying to evaluate books written to teach programing and technical skills to get ideas on how to create my own audio and video tutorials. This is challenging because there is not a lot out there. This is one of the few that I have found so far. I have a couple of suggestions for the author that would make listening easier.

1. Do space not space say space the space word space "space" space between space every space symbol space when space reading space code period space it space makes space it space very space difficult space to space concentrate space on space the space code. The spaces in javascript do not carry any weight so add no information to what is being said. Instead just let the reader know on the outset that spaces are inferred and direct them to a place where than can look at the code if they need to see the exact spacing.

2. When suggesting moving a block of code from an html file to another file, there is no need to repeat the section of code, maybe instead just say "Move all the code in the previous section between the tags to the new file."
