Packt is pleased to announce MooTools 1.2 Beginner's Guide, a new book which covers the fundamental aspects as well as the core functions of MooTools. Written by Jacob Gube and Garrick Cheung, this book is packed with examples that cover the most important aspects of getting started with MooTools.

MooTools is a compact JavaScript framework designed for the intermediate as well as advanced JavaScript developers. Its compact, modular, object-oriented nature allows developers to write powerful, flexible, and cross-browser code. Along with providing a detailed coherent API to increase the speed of development, it also includes built-in functions for manipulation of CSS, DOM elements, native JavaScript objects, Ajax requests, and more.

MooTools 1.2 Beginner's Guide is the first book specifically designed for absolute newcomers to MooTools.  Its simple-to-follow beginner's guide style provides readers with all the building blocks required to learn the basics of MooTools and more. Readers can bring web pages to life using animation and can also boost the responsiveness of their web applications using AJAX with MooTools.

The initial chapters would help readers understand the fundamentals of MooTools including downloading, installation, and the basic syntax. Once they grasp the basics, they would be introduced to exciting features such as building super-charged web forms, writing powerful and flexible cross-browser code, making web applications user-interactive with AJAX and much more.

Newcomers who have no familiarity with MooTools, but have a basic knowledge of JavaScript syntax and concepts will find this book a beneficial and enjoyable read. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: - www.PacktPub.com/mootools-1-2-beginners-guide/book
