Mastering modern JavaScript techniques and the toolchain are essential to develop web-scale applications.Mastering JavaScript will be your companion as you master JavaScript and build innovative web applications. To begin with, you will get familiarized with the language constructs and how to make code easy to organize. You will gain a concrete understanding of variable scoping, loops, and best practices on using types and data structures, as well as the coding style and recommended code organization patterns in JavaScript. The book will also teach you how to use arrays and objects as data structures. You will graduate from intermediate-level skills to advanced techniques as you come to understand crucial language concepts and design principles. You will learn about modern libraries and tools so you can write better code.By the end of the book, you will understand how reactive JavaScript is going to be the new paradigm.What you will learnGet a run through of the basic JavaScript language constructsGet familiar with the Functions and Closures of JavaScriptExplore Regular Expressions in JavaScriptCode using the powerful object-oriented feature in JavaScriptTest and debug your code using JavaScript strategiesMaster DOM manipulation, cross-browser strategies, and ES6Understand the basic concurrency constructs in Javascript and best performance strategiesLearn to build scalable server application in JavaScript using Node.jsAbout the AuthorVed Antani is an AVP (engineering) at Myntra.
