Thank you! More to come!
I am a novice and I understand you want us to think. But the downfall of the first HF js book it does not show how to do real things that are in use today. It would be helpful if this new book does that.
I assume you are talking about Head First HTML5. Remember the JS chapters in there are meant to be a quick start, not a replacement for a book JS book or teacher.
Makeda, please signup at http://22.214.171.124/jssignup and participate in the writing of the book. We’d love to have your input.
Jeff, very interesting. We’d love to discuss this as we’re sorting out our plans. Could you shoot a note to us over at eric @ wickedlysmart.com? Thanks!
am looking forward for this book, cant wait..
your books are being used to teach the kids of software engineering under graduates…. your book brought me to this useful website.. 😀
This is a great idea, I’ve previously followed Armando Fox’s “Engineering Long Lasting Software” as a beta book and it has been a fun way to follow the development.
I’m a very experienced programmer who knew very little about web pages and nothing about JS. I have spent the best part of a year trying the wrong books on JS; including a couple of O’Reilly’s. Gosh, are they boring! You need a lot of will to cope with work and have some enthusiasm left to go on with those books. In a recent seminar Head First HTML & CSS was recommended, and boy, have I had fun reading this book. Each day I can hardly wait to go over a new chapter. It is very well written, its fun, and one really learns. I will be right in line to buy Head First Java Script.
Regarding the chapter by chapter issue, there is a company out there called Inkling; they sell all kinds of books, many of them text books, BY THE CHAPTER! Perhaps they, rather than O’Reilly would be the folks to contact regarding JS. Or O’Reilly could figure out how to charge by chapter…???
Thanks for HF HTML & CSS… honestly THANKS!!! Six months to write it it’s well worth it.
Looks like the comments below are overflowing your footer!
Yes, sometimes they do that if the Disqus plugin doesn’t load correctly. Sorry about that! I haven’t had time to look into the problem and fix it yet…
Hi Pablo, sorry just now saw this comment (or at least re-saw it!). Anyway, O’Reilly does sell by the page, on Safari Books Online. (And they also distribute by the chapter to schools through Safari).
Noted with many thanks Beth.
