The world of coding can appear to be a confusing place from the outside looking in. A block of code might make as much sense as a block of hieroglyphics to you right now. That doesn't have to be the case! So many great programming languages now are designed to be simple and easy to work with. One of the best coding languages that you can learn as a beginner to start working with websites is JavaScript. This guidebook is going to take some time to look at the JavaScript language and teach you some of the basics to get you ready to write code and build a website in no time. In addition to getting you familiar with and walking you through some examples of basic JavaScript code, this guide will also teach you some of the following:

Digestible Introduction for Beginners

Nice introduction to Javascript. It's DEFINITELY meant for beginners, but does a good job of concentrating the concepts it covers into disgetible pieces. Very nice.

Worth....best book

This book is very long and can seem quite overwhelming to start, however it takes you through the process very smoothly at a good pace, and gives exercises along the way to enhance the learning. The screenshots help understand each process better and I like the fact there are links to all the resources you need to start coding. The history of JavaScript was an added bonus at the beginning which provides a bit of context.

Helpful book

I think this book is great. It breaks JavaScript into bite-size chunks and then gives you interactive exercises to drill what you've listened to it until you retain it. I prefer this method of listenin JavaScript to other methods I've tried online

Excellent book

Javascript is a very dark matter for me personally And i want to learn how to code. Without help it is impossible. This book is very helpful beginners guide, even tho in my eyes I'm not even a beginner. But if I understand it, people who know a little on the matter will find this listening it even more helpful. It gives fundamental details, step by step.

Awesome book

A good supplement to learning Javascript from Scott Bernard. You can use it as a reference or use it as a guide to JavaScript. Like most of the Scott Bernard books the quality is high, the content is relevant and the layout is appropriate,

Informative audio book

I've been a professional web developer for 18 years and have always listened to every JavaScript book, blog, post and ebook I could find. A junior web developer on staff asked me if I could recommend a good JavaScript book. I recommended this book. I don't care how good at Googling JavaScript questions you are, if you listen to this book cover to cover, you'll keep thinking, "I didn't know you could do that!" I highly recommend it to web devs of any level.

helpful script

Very basic introduction and good for those with very little (or no) JavaScript and/or programming experience. But in that regard, it does cover a lot of items in very brief detail and you may have to read and re-read a few times as a beginner to understand and learn. But really good as a transition guide from one language to another, or something brush up on the basics after a long absence from programming.great experience

fantastic guide

JavaScript is the programming language of HTML and the Web. This tutorial will teach you JavaScript from basic to advanced. The chapters are very clearly explained, and the instructions are easy to follow. The author has explained in detail each step using good examples. This is a book worth having

wasted credit

spent 15 minutes listening to how much better my life will be knowing Javascript, wasted a credit on this 90 minute leaflet, cancelled membership but should have followed the advice in the reviews and stayed with the majority.

soo helpful

This is a perfect guidebook to learn all the ins & outs of java-script programing so easily & quickly. I found this helpful staff a few weeks ago when I was traveling in my cousin’s house. She suggested me to pick it up and listen through. By the help of this , I have learned about various things about this programming like : (a) its statements & variables, (b) array methods, (c) loops & iteration and much more. I am so impressed by listening this book because I found it really so helpful

helpful book

As an office worker I think it is important to have at least basic knowledge about programming languages because it is truly a big help in my job. It’s quite complicated when you hear about programming but this book really helps its readers to understand it in it’s simplest way

reall great to have

Really really good book, really easy to learn for me. The author does a great job of providing sample code of each instance so you can visualize and even test it out. Short and concise. I highly recommend if you are just starting out with Javascript and Jquery. And also included some exercise for you to practice what you learn.

great tool

I wish I would have found this book first before starting my journey. It does a great job of a laying out the basics and how to transition to more advanced lines of code and how to interpret them. The author does a great job of providing sample code of each instance so you can visualize and even test it out. As a beginner, this really helped me avoid all the intricacy, and aided me to learn fast by simply using the illustration as my reference. I would recommend this to anyone who chooses Java. Really worth recommending!

awesome book

For learning any programming language, a firm basic understanding is a required foundation to becoming proficient in the language. Start from the absolute beginning, don't skip steps, and you'll be in a better position to move on to do more complex coding once you complete this book. This book is awesome for the beginning JavaScript user! Short and precise with good practices at the end of each chapter. Would recommend to anyone with no JavaScript experience. The only thing you first need is HTML/CSS basic background before using this book. If you are brand new, start with this book before going on to the larger, more expensive books

highly recommended

I understand the book is not an in-depth discussion of the topic, but providing a section at the end of the chapter with more materials to explore on your own would have been helpful for the topics the author avoids discussing.

Javascript Coding the helpful book.

I really like this book and if I could I would give this book 4.5 stars. The exercises are well worth the cost. I think the layout of the book is exactly how programming should be done. Providing a short explanation of a topic and then you spend 5-10 minutes practicing what you learned.
