About the Book

The second edition of Teach Yourself JavaScript is not only updated for the latest version of the language - it's also much improved from the previous version, with more examples and better organization.

When JavaScript was first introduced, it made Web pages interactive - and got me excited about programming for the first time in years. It's a fun language to learn and use, whether you're an experienced programmer or a beginner. I wrote this book to try to pass on some of this excitement. This book starts with the basics, and ends with games and applications that take full advantage of JavaScript. If you create Web pages, this book will help you add fun and functionality with JavaScript.

UPDATE: The examples for the book are now online. We appreciate your patience.
