JavaScript by Example

By: Dani Akash S

Overview of this book

JavaScript is the programming language that all web developers need to learn. The first item on our JavaScript to-do list is building g a To-do list app, which you'll have done by the end of the first chapter. You'll explore DOM manipulation with JavaScript and work with event listeners. You'll work with images and text to build a Meme creator. You will also learn about ES (ECMAScript) classes, and will be introduced to layouts using the CSS3 Flexbox. You'll also develop a responsive Event Registration form that allows users to register for your upcoming event and use charts and graphics to display registration data. You will then build a weather application, which will show you different ways perform AJAX requests and work with dynamic, external data. WebRTC enables real-time communication in a web browser; you'll learn how to use it when you build a real-time video-call and chat application later in the book. Towards the end of the book, you will meet React, Facebook's JavaScript library for building user interfaces. You'll throw together a blog with React, and get a feel for why this kind of JavaScript framework is used to build large-scale applications. To make your blog more maintainable and scalable, you'll use Redux to manage data across React components.

Event - JS meetup

Here is the scenario for our project:

You are organizing a JavaScript meetup in your locality. You have invited people from schools, colleges, and offices, who are all interested in JavaScript. You need to create a website for attendees to register for the event. The website should have the following functionalities:

  • A form to help users register for the event
  • A page that shows statistics on the number of users interested in the event as a chart
  • An about page with event details and the location of the event embedded as a Google Map

Also, most of the people will be using mobile phones to register for the event. So, the application should be fully responsive.

This is how the app should look on mobiles:
