The Joy of JavaScript

The Joy of JavaScript teaches you how to design JavaScript applications founded in sound computer science concepts and real-world industry success. First, you’ll get up close and personal with JavaScript’s object system. From there, you’ll dive into programming objects and functions. As you build various domain models, you’ll learn the pros and cons of techniques ranging from prototype-centered tightly coupled object configurations to loosely coupled delegation-based compositions. You’ll also explore ways of connecting objects with pure functions, and driving business logic with immutability and algebraic data types.

Using JavaScript’s shiny new module system and dynamically hooking into your data with Proxy and Reflect APIs, you’ll master tracing, logging, and performance trackers without having to modify your application components. You’ll also discover blockchain concepts as you develop pieces of a transaction management system. Along the way, you’ll explore topics like using JavaScript with different paradigms and how to overlay type information into JavaScript without having to switch to TypeScript. Illustrated, easy-to-grasp use cases and a hands-on peer-to-peer project lock in all you’ve learned, then take your learning further by showing you how to untangle complex asynchronous behaviors using promises, generators, and ES7 async-await syntax.

Functional Programming in JavaScript

Functional Programming in JavaScript teaches you techniques to improve your web applications: their extensibility, modularity, reusability, and testability, as well as their performance. This easy-to-read book uses concrete examples and clear explanations to show you how to use functional programming in real life. If you're new to functional programming, you'll appreciate this guide's many insightful comparisons to imperative or object-oriented programming that help you understand functional design. By the end, you'll think about application design in a fresh new way, and you may even grow to appreciate monads!

Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja, Second Edition

Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja, Second Edition uses practical examples to clearly illustrate each core concept and technique. This completely revised edition shows you how to master key JavaScript concepts such as functions, closures, objects, prototypes, and promises. It covers APIs such as the DOM, events, and timers. You'll discover best practice techniques such as testing, and cross-browser development, all taught from the perspective of skilled JavaScript practitioners.
