Whether you are just learning JavaScript or think you already know it, this book definitely can help and is worthy of using and keeping on hand. Yes, you may grow tired of seeing the word "ninja" and various warrior names appearing frequently in code examples. However, this recently updated JavaScript classic takes a four-tiered approach that can guide you to becoming, if not a ninja, at least a very competent JavaScript developer. And the book has been updated with ECMAScript 6 and 7 in mind.Part One introduces JavaScript, with an emphasis on "the environment where it all began--the browser," and discusses some best practices. Part Two offers four chapters devoted to functions and covers closures, promises and the new generator function, as well. Part Three dives into objects and related topics such as collections, regular expressions, and code modularization techniques, including ES6 modules. Part Four explores the browser world, including the Document Object Model (DOM), event loops and timers, and cross-browser and implementation strategies.Throughout the book, helpful summaries and exercises are offered. A handy ES6 cheat sheet also is printed inside the front and rear cover flaps. Whether you like JavaScript or hate it, it will be around for a long time and remain a significant force in the development world. "Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja, Second Edition" can show you how to fight your way through JS and survive with honor.My thanks to Manning for providing a review copy.
