À propos de ce livre

JavaScript in easy steps, 6th edition instructs the user how to create exciting web pages that employ the power of JavaScript to provide functionality. You need have no previous knowledge of any scripting language so it's ideal for the newcomer to JavaScript. By the end of this book you will have gained a sound understanding of JavaScript and be able to add exciting dynamic scripts to your own web pages.

JavaScript in easy steps, 6th edition begins by explaining how to easily incorporate JavaScript code in an HTML document. Examples demonstrate how to use built-in JavaScript functions to work with Math, date and time, random numbers, cookies, text strings, and elements of web pages via the Document Object Model (DOM). You will learn how JavaScript is used with HTML submission forms and how JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is used for asynchronous browser-server communication. The book examples provide clear syntax-highlighted code showing how to create behaviors for an HTML document to endow components with interactive functionality, to illustrate each aspect of JavaScript.

JavaScript in easy steps, 6th edition has an easy-to-follow style that will appeal to anyone who wants to add functionality to their web pages. It will appeal to programmers who want to quickly add JavaScript to their skills set, and to the student who is studying website design at school or college, and to those seeking a career in web development who need an understanding of client-side scripting.

Summary
Meet JS
JavaScript (“JS”) is an object-based scripting language whose interpreter is embedded inside web browser software such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. This allows scripts contained in a web page to be interpreted when the page is loaded in the browser to provide functionality. For security reasons, JavaScript cannot read or write files, with the exception of “cookie” files that store minimal data.

Created by Brendan Eich at Netscape, JavaScript was first introduced in December 1995, and was initially named “LiveScript”. It was soon renamed, however, to perhaps capitalize on the popularity of Sun Microsystem’s Java programming language – although it bears little resemblance.
Before the introduction of JavaScript, web page functionality required the browser to call upon “server-side” scripts, resident on the web server, where slow response could impede performance. Calling upon “client-side” scripts resident on the user’s system, overcame the latency problem and provided a superior experience.
JavaScript quickly became very popular but a disagreement arose between Netscape and Microsoft over its licensing – so Microsoft introduced its own version named “JScript”. Although similar to JavaScript, the new JScript version had some extended features. Recognizing the danger of fragmentation, the JavaScript language was standardized by the Ecma International standards organization in June 1997 as “ECMAScript”. This helped to stabilize core features but the name, sounding like some kind of skin disease, is not widely used and most people will always call the language “JavaScript”.
