JavaScript is the most widely-used programming language for web development and that's not all! It has evolved over the years and is now being implemented in an array of environments from websites to robotics. Learning JavaScript will help you see the broader picture of web development. This book will take your imagination to new heights by teaching you how to work with JavaScript from scratch. It will introduce you to HTML and CSS to enhance the appearance of your applications. You’ll then use your skills to build on a cool Battleship game! From there, the book will introduce you to jQuery and show you how you can manipulate the DOM. You’ll get to play with some cool stuff using Canvas and will learn how to make use of Canvas to build a game on the lines of Pacman, only a whole lot cooler!

About the Reviewer


Suppose you have done a lot of coding and some logical operations, and used a number of variables on JavaScript, and you want me to help you with the code if any errors occur. When you send me the code, I will not know what you have typed unless I have a clear knowledge of JavaScript or you have commented on the important lines.

A comment is basically a line of text or code that your browser ignores while running. You can compare comments to sticky notes or reminder.

Var name = "Sherlock Holmes"; // This is a string
Var occupation = "Detective"; // This variable stores information
Var age = 14; // This is an integer type of data.

Your multiline comment should be between /* and */, as shown in the following screenshot:
