Learn JavaScript and jQuery a nicer way

This full-color book adopts a visual approach to teaching JavaScript & jQuery, showing you how to make web pages more interactive and interfaces more intuitive through the use of inspiring code examples, infographics, and photography. The content assumes no previous programming experience, other than knowing how to create a basic web page in HTML & CSS. You'll learn how to achieve techniques seen on many popular websites (such as adding animation, tabbed panels, content sliders, form validation, interactive galleries, and sorting data)..

  • Introduces core programming concepts in JavaScript and jQuery
  • Uses clear descriptions, inspiring examples, and easy-to-follow diagrams
  • Teaches you how to create scripts from scratch, and understand the thousands of JavaScripts, JavaScript APIs, and jQuery plugins that are available on the web
  • Demonstrates the latest practices in progressive enhancement, cross-browser compatibility, and when you may be better off using CSS3

If you're looking to create more enriching web experiences and express your creativity through code, then this is the book for you.
