Modern SharePoint Development with JavaScript – A Practical Guide

Book 1: Introduction to JavaScript

About the Book

As part of The Confucius Project, this book represents a new approach to adult learning.  Based on a multi-modal (text, video and hands-on) approach to learning new skills, with a focus on practical knowledge you can use immediately.  This book is concise (touching on core JavaScript constructs in just over 25 pages), loaded with examples (nearly 30 fully documented snippets) and allows you to get started quickly and easily.  The rest of the material in The Confucius Project (some free, some not) will continue to layer additional material on top of this foundation and will be structured in such a way that you can jump in and out whenever your skills and time allow.

For more information, see  While we're just getting things kicked off, we have big plans so join our mailing list to stay on top of things as we release them.
