Modern JavaScript: Develop and Design was written to teach JavaScript as a complete programming language. The book does so using practical examples and emphasizing approaches that represent how the language should truly be used today. You'll learn sound Web development theory, relying heavily upon unobtrusive JavaScript, progressive enhancement, and object detection, among other concepts. At the same time, you'll also walk away with plenty of usable code and many examples that are applicable to today's Web. There's even a chapter on using JavaScript and PHP together to create a complete, functional, and reliable Web application (the basis of an auction site).
