John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Announces JavaScript and jQuery

John Wiley & Sons Inc. announced JavaScript and jQuery: Interactive Front-End Web Development by Jon Duckett. Using the same visual approach to teaching as Duckett's best-selling HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites book, JavaScript and jQuery teaches readers how to use this fast-growing scripting language (even if they have no previous programming experience). JavaScript and jQuery shows readers how to make web pages more interactive and engaging and interfaces that are more intuitive and usable 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 and CSS. The book: introduces core programming concepts using JavaScript; combines clear descriptions with easy-to-follow diagrams; demonstrates how JavaScript is commonly used on the web, with many inspiring examples; helps readers use and customize the many thousands of scripts, APIs, and jQuery plugins that are freely available on the web; shows readers how to approach writing a script from scratch. JavaScript and jQuery: Interactive Front-End Web Development is now available for purchase online and at retailers nationwide. The book is available in both paperback and hardback formats.
