Enjoy the ride through the process of improving your development workflow.

From the Foreword by Addy Osmani, Google

The fate of most applications is often sealed before a single line of code has been written. How is that possible? Simply, bad design assures bad results. Good design and effective processes are the foundation on which maintainable applications are built, scaled, and improved. For JavaScript developers, this means discovering the tooling, modern libraries, and architectural patterns that enable those improvements.

JavaScript Application Design: A Build First Approach introduces techniques to improve software quality and development workflow. You'll begin by learning how to establish processes designed to optimize the quality of your work. You'll execute tasks whenever your code changes, run tests on every commit, and deploy in an automated fashion. Then you'll focus on designing modular components and composing them together to build robust applications.

What's inside

  • Automated development, testing, and deployment processes
  • JavaScript fundamentals and modularity best practices
  • Modular, maintainable, and well-tested applications
  • Master asynchronous flows, embrace MVC, and design a REST API
