9 Best Free JavaScript Books

9 Best Free JavaScript Books | about javascript | Scoop.it

JavaScript is an interpreted, prototype-based, scripting computer programming language. It came to popular attention as a simple client-side scripting tool, interacting with the user using forms and controlling the web browser, but over the years it is now considered to be a flexible programming language.

 

JavaScript features dynamic types, it is weakly typed, supports the structured programming syntax from C, uses prototypes instead of classes for inheritance, and copies many names and naming conventions from Java. It also borrows design principles from Scheme and Self.

 

The focus of this article is to select the finest JavaScript books which help programmers master all aspects of this language. The books featured here help programmers of all levels take full advantage of the power of JavaScript. All of the books are available to download for free.

 

To cater for all tastes, we have chosen a good range of books. All of the texts here come with our strongest recommendation. So get reading (and downloading).

JavaScript: Function Invocation Patterns

JavaScript has been described as a Functional Oriented Language (this as opposed to Object Oriented Language). The reason is because functions in JavaScript do more than just separate logic into execution units, functions are first class citizens that also provide scope and the ability to create objects. Having such a heavy reliance upon functions is both a blessing and a curse: It's a blessing because it makes the language light weight and fast (the main goal of its original development), but it is a curse because you can very easily shoot yourself in the foot if you don't know what you are doing.

jQuery Masonry

Masonry is a dynamic grid layout plugin for jQuery. Think of it as the flip-side of CSS floats. Whereas floating arranges elements horizontally then vertically, Masonry arranges elements vertically, positioning each element in the next open spot in the grid. The result minimizes vertical gaps between elements of varying height, just like a mason fitting stones in a wall.

The Surprisingly Elegant Javascript Type Model

By now, Javascript programmers at large have generally gotten a handle on the prototype-based inheritance schemes that are possible within the language. Still, it seems that many people feel that JS’s idea of types is somewhat lacking. What I want to talk about is the reality that once you dust around the corners a little bit, it’s possible to see that Javascript contains within it the outlines of a reasonably well-defined, somewhat elegant (if not strictly enforced) type model.

Partial Application in JavaScript using bind() | about javascript | Scoop.it

The Surprisingly Elegant Javascript Type Model, Part 2: A Very Meta Prelude

This post is not really going to be about Javascript. A good chunk of the things I want to say about Javascript arise from my thoughts on the role of metatypes. However, people have varying notions of what metatypes are. It’s certainly not a term that’s as well-defined as encapsulation or inheritance, for example.
