Software Tools in JavaScript

About the Book

The best way to learn design is to study examples, and some of the best examples of software design come from the tools programmers use in their own work. In these lessons we build small versions of version control systems, testing frameworks, regular expression matchers, and browser layout engines both to demystify them and to give some insights into how experienced programmers think.

All proceeds from this project will go to support the Red Door Family Shelter in Toronto, Ontario.
