Learn JavaScript From Scratch with SitePoint's "Simply JavaScript"

Share Article

SitePoint publishes a full color book for learning JavaScript by Kevin Yank and Cameron Adams.

In 2001 Kevin Yank brought PHP and MySQL into the lives of tens of thousands of developers with his definitive book, Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP & MySQL.

Now, with co-author and JavaScript guru Cameron Adams, Kevin's doing the same for JavaScript with the official release of Simply JavaScript from SitePoint (http://www.sitepoint.com/).

Beautifully presented in full color, Simply JavaScript not only teaches JavaScript with unprecedented clarity, it does so with a sense of humor -- it's guaranteed to keep you entertained.

Perfect for first-time JavaScript coders or individuals looking to improve their programming skills, Kevin and Cameron will guide you through the JavaScript programming basics, as well as provide practical solutions to real-world problems.

Simply JavaScript will teach you how to:

  • Use JavaScript's built-in functions, methods, and properties.
  • Change the content of web pages using the DOM.
  • Use JavaScript to respond to user actions.
  • Create animations that bring a web site to life.
  • Build forms that validate entries and interact with users.
  • Build a richer user experience with Ajax.
  • Explore the amazing things that JavaScript makes possible.

The JavaScript code used to create each of the components in the book is available for download, and is guaranteed to be simple, efficient, best practice, and ready to use in your own web site.

Simply JavaScript co-author and SitePoint technical director Kevin Yank is extremely proud of his new book: "We knew from the beginning that it wasn't worth writing another beginner's JavaScript book unless we could produce something really special, and we definitely have."
