We've assembled seven of the greatest minds in modern JavaScript to teach you the most inspirational techniques you'll ever use. From creating impressive mashups and stunning, dynamic graphics, to more subtle user-experience enhancements, you're about to be amazed by the true potential of this powerful language.

With an all star line-up of authors including James Edwards, Michael Mahemoff, Ara Pehlivanian, Cameron Adams, Dan Webb, Christian Heilmann, and Simon Willison, this superb book will show you how to:

  • Create a slick Google Maps and Flickr mashup.
  • Build your own fully accessible 3D maze.
  • Create stunning vector graphics using the canvas element.
  • Have some fun with draggable and sortable table columns.
  • Give your site some extra personality with client-side badges.
  • Write better code faster using metaprogramming techniques.
  • Become a debugging expert using pro-level Firebug tricks.
    Presented in full color, all of the books solutions are cross-browser and cross-platform compatible. Best of all, all the code used in the book is available for you to download and experiment with.

    Who Should Read This Book?
    This book is targeted at intermediate JavaScript developers who want to take their JavaScript skills to the next level without sacrificing web accessibility or best practice.

    If you have even a small amount of experience with JavaScript, and are comfortable enough programming in another language such as PHP or Java, you'll be just fine - we'll hold your hand along the way, and all of the code is available for you to download and experiment with on your own.
