The other day such a book crossed my path – or to be more precise, I crossed it’s. What impressed me about this book was that:
A – It was from a publisher that has been around for some time (Wiley Publishing, Inc.)
B – There was a TON of examples AND there was information on downloading the (source) code for all the examples.
C – There were exercises at the end of each chapter (with the answers in the back of the book ;-)
E – Lots of reference pages on the W3C DOM
a – jQuery b – Prototype c – MooTools
G – Mentioned other general frameworks:
a – YUI b – ExtJS c – Dojo d - MochiKit
H – Mentioned specialty frameworks like the scrip.aculo.us for animation
I – There were lots of pictures (screen shots)
J – It was printed using a font you could read without squinting (or resorting to “reading glasses”)
K – It was a good (physical) size for the subject (over 560 pages, and about 2 inches thick)
L – It has an MSRP of $39.99 USD
M – It had a copyright of 2010
Go to your favorite brick and mortor store or go on-line and get yourself a copy. Do not forget a highlighter pen. Once you have the book, get a BIG cup of coffee, get comfortable and start reading. You will not regret it. Oh yes, do not forget to download the free code. Full info:
