JavaScript and JQuery: Interactive Front-End Web Development (Paperback)

Jon Duckett



This full-color book will show you how to make your websites more interactive and your interfaces more interesting and intuitive.

  1. Basic programming concepts - assuming no prior knowledge of programming beyond an ability to create a web page using HTML & CSS
  2. Core elements of the JavaScript language - so you can learn how to write your own scripts from scratch
  3. jQuery - which will allow you to simplify the process of writing scripts (this is introduced half-way through the book once you have a solid understanding of JavaScript)
  4. How to recreate techniques you will have seen on other web sites such as sliders, content filters, form validation, updating content using Ajax, and much more (these examples demonstrate writing your own scripts from scratch and how the theory you have learned is put into practice).
As with our first book (the best-selling HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites), each chapter:
  • Breaks subjects down into bite-sized chunks with a new topic on each page
  • Contains clear descriptions of syntax, each one demonstrated with inspiring code samples
  • Uses diagrams and photography to explain complex concepts in a visual way
By the end of the book, not only will you be able to use the thousands of scripts, JavaScript APIs, and jQuery plugins that are freely available on the web, and be able to customize them - you will also be able to create your own scripts from scratch.

If you're looking to create more enriching web experiences, then this is the book for you.



1. 基本的程式設計概念 - 假設您對程式設計沒有任何先備知識,只需具備使用HTML和CSS創建網頁的能力。
2. JavaScript語言的核心元素 - 讓您能夠從頭開始學習如何撰寫自己的腳本。
3. jQuery - 這將使您能夠簡化撰寫腳本的過程(在您對JavaScript有扎實的理解之後,本書中途介紹)。
4. 如何重新創建您在其他網站上看到的技術,例如滑塊、內容篩選器、表單驗證、使用Ajax更新內容等等(這些示例演示了如何從頭開始撰寫自己的腳本,以及您所學理論如何應用於實踐)。

- 將主題分解為小塊,每頁介紹一個新主題。
- 包含清晰的語法描述,每個語法都有激發人心的代碼示例演示。
- 使用圖表和照片以視覺方式解釋複雜的概念。

通過閱讀本書,您不僅將能夠使用網絡上免費提供的數千個腳本、JavaScript API和jQuery插件,並能夠自定義它們,還將能夠從頭開始創建自己的腳本。
