Description

Expert techniques to make your websites more interactive and engaging

In JavaScript and jQuery: Interactive Front-End Development, best-selling author Jon Duckett delivers a fully illustrated guide to making your websites more interactive and your interfaces more interesting and intuitive. In the book, you'll explore basic programming concepts that assume no prior knowledge of programming beyond an ability to create a web page using HTML & CSS.

You'll use core elements of the JavaScript language so you can learn how to write your own scripts from scratch, as well as jQuery, which will allow you to simplify the process of writing scripts (this is introduced half-way through the book once you have a solid understanding of JavaScript).

You'll also learn to recreate techniques you have seen on other web sites such as sliders, content filters, form validation, Ajax content updates, and much more. Each chapter:

  • Breaks subjects down into bite-sized chunks with a new topic on each page
  • Contains clear descriptions of syntax, each one demonstrated with illustrative code samples
  • Uses diagrams and photography to explain complex concepts in a visual way

By the end of the book, not only will you be able to use the thousands of scripts, JavaScript APIs, and jQuery plugins that are freely available on the web - and be able to customize them - you will also be able to create your own scripts from scratch.
