Light-hearted and hands-on, the book introduces you to programming essentials through fun examples, hands-on exercises, and cool projects like building a Pong-style computer game. You’ll discover all of the important aspects of the language (without delving into expert-level nitty-gritty details or confusing jargon) as you develop a fast knack for programming with JavaScript.

  • Explore key web programming topics, like interactivity and drawing graphics with Canvas
  • Use JavaScript to make games, apps, and even create music
