RPJS has practical examples that allow to spend less time learning and more time building your own applications. Prototype fast and ship code that matters!

Test-Driven JavaScript Development

Initially, all processing used to happen on the server-side and simple output was the response to web browsers. Nowadays, there are so many JavaScript frameworks and libraries created that help readers to create charts, animations, simulations, and so on. By the time a project finishes or reaches a stable state, so much JavaScript code has already been written that changing and maintaining it further is tedious. Here comes the importance of automated testing and more specifically, developing all that code in a test-driven environment.

Learning JavaScript, 3rd Edition

If you're a programmer new to JavaScript, or even a beginner with little or no programming experience, this latest edition of practical book offers complete, no-nonsense coverage of this essential web development language. Learning JavaScript follows proven learning principles to help you absorb the concepts at an easy pace, so you'll learn how to create powerful and responsive applications in any browser.

JavaScript Concurrency

Concurrent programming may sound abstract and complex, but it helps to deliver a better user experience. With single threaded JavaScript, applications lack dynamism. This means that when JavaScript code is running, nothing else can happen. The DOM can't update, which means the UI freezes. In a world where users expect speed and responsiveness – in all senses of the word – this is something no developer can afford.

Beautiful JavaScript

JavaScript is arguably the most polarizing and misunderstood programming language in the world. Many have attempted to replace it as the language of the Web, but JavaScript has survived, evolved, and thrived. Why did a language created in such hurry succeed where others failed? This guide gives you a rare glimpse into JavaScript from people intimately familiar with it. Chapters contributed by domain experts such as Jacob Thornton, Ariya Hidayat, and Sara Chipps show what they love about their favorite language - whether it's turning the most feared features into useful tools, or how JavaScript can be used for self-expression.

JavaScript Frameworks for Modern Web Dev

JavaScript Frameworks for Modern Web Dev is your guide to the wild, vast, and untamed frontier that is JavaScript development. The JavaScript tooling landscape has grown and matured drastically in the past several years. This book will serve as an introduction to both new and well established libraries, frameworks, and utilities that have gained popular traction and support from seasoned developers. It covers tools applicable to the entire development stack, both client- and server-side.

JavaScript Application Design

The fate of most applications is often sealed before a single line of code has been written. How is that possible? Simply, bad design assures bad results. Good design and effective processes are the foundation on which maintainable applications are built, scaled, and improved. For JavaScript developers, this means discovering the tooling, modern libraries, and architectural patterns that enable those improvements.

Effective JavaScript

In order to truly master JavaScript, you need to learn how to work effectively with the language's flexible, expressive features and how to avoid its pitfalls. No matter how long you've been writing JavaScript code, Effective JavaScript will help deepen your understanding of this powerful language, so you can build more predictable, reliable, and maintainable programs. Author David Herman, with his years of experience on Ecma's JavaScript standardization committee, illuminates the language's inner workings as never before helping you take full advantage of JavaScript's expressiveness. Reflecting the latest versions of the JavaScript standard, the book offers well-proven techniques and best practices you'll rely on for years to come.

Pro JavaScript Techniques, 2nd Edition

Pro JavaScript Techniques is the ultimate JavaScript book for today's web developer. It provides everything you need to know about modern JavaScript, and teaches you what JavaScript can do for your web sites. This book doesn't waste any time looking at things you already know, but instead concentrates on fundamental, vital topics what modern JavaScripting is (and isn't), and pitfalls to be wary of.

Ext JS 6 By Example

Ext JS is one of the most famous JavaScript frameworks used to create rich interactive web applications using techniques such as Ajax, DHTML, JSON, and DOM scripting.It provides a complete rich set of GUI controls, has an excellent API for AJAX and REST, and helps users to organize their code with Model View ViewModel (MVVM) or the MVC architecture, and supports two-way data binding, responsive layouts, responsive design, and more.

Jasmine Cookbook

Jasmine provides a rich set of libraries to design and develop tests for JavaScript applications. Its tests aim to run on any JavaScript-enabled platform and have easy-to-read syntax. This book is a comprehensive guide to designing and developing Jasmine tests to produce world-class software. The recipes are elaborated using examples from a real-world application, which involves various aspects of designing and developing tests from simple to complex level. You will learn how to create tests for jQuery and Ajax, HTML and JSON fixtures, CoffeeScript, and AngularJS.

You Don't Know JS: ES6 & Beyond

No matter how much experience you have with JavaScript, odds are you don't fully understand the language. As part of the "You Don't Know JS" series, this compact guide focuses on the new features that will be available to developers in ECMAScript 6, the newest version of the standard on which JavaScript is built. Like other books in this series, You Don't Know JS: ES6 & Beyond dives into trickier parts of the language that many JavaScript programmers simply avoid. Armed with this knowledge, you can achieve true JavaScript mastery.
