Modern Application Building with HTML and Javascript

About the Book

This book deliberately emphasizes the minimalist basics. Using the techniques presented here will enable development of sophisticated applications without the need to go far afield. 

The code for the samples is available and is downloaded during the "Getting Started" chapter. You may key it in yourself if doing so helps you to learn (recommended), but the downloaded code is there for comparison if you get stuck on some stupid syntax error.

About the Author

I have found programming to be terribly addictive. Google is my best friend. I just cannot seem to quit programming. I guess it is somewhat like playing video games. There is an objective and a burst of adrenaline when the objective is achieved. Since most projects can be broken into a series of easily achievable objectives, the flow is constant. I am just an adrenaline junky.
