About

Your knowledge of Python is a great foundation to learn other languages for your software engineering career, while JavaScript has unique features that make it integral for not only front-end development but also for streamlining work on the back-end.

From working with user interactions and ingesting data from APIs, through to creating APIs with Node.js, this book will help you learn JavaScript with hands-on exercises, code snippets, and detailed descriptions of JavaScript implementation and benefits. Starting with the basics of JavaScript, you’ll cover its syntax, its use in the browser, and frameworks and libraries. Since JavaScript is also used in the back-end, you’ll explore Node.js and understand how it can communicate with databases. As you advance, you’ll get to grips with creating your own RESTful APIs and connecting the front-end and back-end.

By the end of this JavaScript book, you will have the knowledge you need to write full-fledged web applications from start to finish. You’ll have also gained hands-on experience of working through several projects, which will help you advance in your career as a JavaScript developer.

Features
