A pretty good introduction to the Document Object Model (DOM) and how to apply it to creating web sites. The basics are covered (although not in much depth), and a few samples are shown in detail. Perfect for a beginner, but may bore the intermediate coder. ( )

Great introduction to scripting for novice developers. Each chapter builds on the previous chapter, providing clear instructions for building an increasingly complex Web application. Keith provides clear and thorough explanations of what is happening every step of the way. ( )

A great primer on writing compliant javascript or for adapting DOM scripting for languages other than javascript. ( )
  djmook | May 31, 2006 |
An excellent standards-based javascript programming tutorial aimed at web designers who aren't necessarily programmers. There's plenty of guidance here for the beginning programmer, but Keith doesn't spend lots of time duplicating reference material available elsewhere or explaining basic programming concepts; so it's also good for someone with more experience who wants to get right to some useful examples.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"You might have heard of the Document Object Model. You will almost certainly have heard of JavaScript. This book explains exactly what these technologies are, where they came from, and what they can do for you." "You don't need to be a programmer to understand DOM Scripting. In fact, this book is aimed specifically at web designers. Programming concepts are illustrated with easy-to-follow tutorials to teach you the ropes of JavaScript and the DOM as painlessly as possible. You will build practical, real-world examples that you can use on your websites. But this book is more than just a collection of useful scripts: it also examines best practices. JavaScript and the Document Object Model are two very powerful technologies that go together like peanut butter and jelly, but if they aren't used with forethought, the results could be messy. The examples given here will encourage you to think about DOM Scripting in a responsible, user-centric way."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
