Overview

JavaScript Design shows designers how to create interactive JavaScript applications for the web. It provides detailed descriptions of JavaScript structures, statements and objects, using JavaScript to create different elements of a web page,controlling a page's overall design and function with JavaScript, passing data and variables between clients and servers. Also covered are advanced topics server-side languages: PHP, Perl, ASP, CGI, XML, connections to Java and Cold Fusion. The line between developers and designers is fading. Designers are challenged with projects that require them to have a strong knowledge of the server side issues traditionally fielded by a web developer. Designers are looking for books that teach them the web developer knowledge in a language in which they are accustomed.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Most designers never expected to be learning computer languages or writing code -- but on the Web, yesterday's distinctions are history. If you haven't already, it's entirely likely that you'll be called upon to write at least simple scripts to provide for interactivity or dynamic web pages -- especially if you work solo or as part of a small design shop.

In JavaScript Design, Bill Sanders introduces the Web's most popular programming language to designers who never expected to be using it. He's got the right background for it: He's a charter faculty member at the University of Hartford's Interactive Information Technology program, where he specializes in teaching technology to non-technologists.

JavaScript Design doesn't just cover syntax and flow control: It walks you through using JavaScript to create each element of a web page, and overall page design and behavior. Since JavaScript is purely a client-side (browser) tool and much of the action these days is on the server side, it also shows you how to interface smoothly with server-side languages and tools such as PHP, Perl, and ASP -- and even make connections to Java and ColdFusion. There's no easier way to learn the JavaScript designers need to know. (Bill Camarda)
