Javascript Guide

Hi Everyone,

I found this interesting article on Javascript by Mark Doernhoefer from his column “Surfing the net for software engineering notes.”  It’s from 2006, but it’s pretty interesting.  It includes a brief introduction to Javascript, and it’s history and development.  Then it gets pretty specific with helpful sites on the subject.  Hope you enjoy taking a look!

    Nice run down on JavaScript from back in the day. Many relevant topics and Ideas are given in the article so thank you for finding it.

    I would like to offer you this article as thanks. The article suggesting that computer professionals develop a deeper understanding of the tools of their profession. I generally agree that developing understanding is good, but some people feel that you do not need to know how a tool is made, just how to use it. I feel that by not understanding how a tool is made you are cutting your ability to use a tool in half needlessly. What if your tool brakes can you fix it? Or will you be the one to develop the “next big thing” because you have a well rounded understanding of your tools? I think that is what the article is getting at. Have a look. (Kings Library -> ACM database)
