John Wiley & Sons, Inc. today announces JavaScript and jQuery: Interactive Front-End Web Development(Wiley, 978-1-118-53164-8, July 2014, http://www.javascriptbook.com) by Jon Duckett. Using the same unique visual approach to teaching as Duckett’s best-selling HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites book, JavaScript and jQuery teaches readers how to use this fast-growing scripting language (even if they have no previous programming experience).

The content assumes no previous programming experience, other than knowing how to create a basic web page in HTML and CSS. The book:

  • Introduces core programming concepts using JavaScript
  • Combines clear descriptions with easy-to-follow diagrams
  • Demonstrates how JavaScript is commonly used on the web, with many inspiring examples
  • Helps readers use and customize the many thousands of scripts, APIs, and jQuery plugins that are freely available on the web
  • Shows readers how to approach writing a script from scratch

JavaScript and jQuery: Interactive Front-End Web Development is now available for purchase online and at retailers nationwide. The book is available in both paperback and hardback formats. For additional information, visit http://www.javascriptbook.com/press.
