A visual and accessible guide to JavaScript and jQuery in a
built-to-last hardcover edition
In JavaScript & jQuery renowned author Jon Duckett
discards the traditional programming book template and approaches
writing code in a more relevant, less intimidating way. Full-color
and packed with instructional graphics and photos, his books have
gained a loyal following by illustrating programming in a way both
instructive for newcomers and invaluable for seasoned coders.

By discussing JavaScript and jQuery in a single text, Duckett
ensures you will quickly be writing your own working scripts. Yet
the book doesn't assume you have experience in either JavaScript or
jQuery. By making use of popular jQuery plugins, Duckett
illustrates techniques that would require pages upon pages of
detailed explanation if you were being taught to create the plugins
yourself. This durable and attractive hardcover edition is a book
you will have open on your desk as a reference for years to

Beautiful 4-color illustrations and examples make this a
