Principles of Object-Oriented JavaScript

Principles of Object-Oriented JavaScript

If you've used a more traditional object-oriented language, such as C++ or Java, JavaScript probably doesn't seem object-oriented at all. It has no concept of classes, and you don’t even need to define any objects in order to write code. But don’t be fooled—JavaScript is an incredibly powerful and expressive object-oriented language that puts many design decisions right into your hands. In The Principles of Object-Oriented JavaScript, Nicholas C. Zakas thoroughly explores JavaScript’s object-oriented nature, revealing the language’s unique implementation of inheritance and other key characteristics. You’ll learn: * The difference between primitive and reference values * What makes JavaScript functions so unique * The various ways to create objects * How to define your own constructors * How to work with and understand prototypes * Inheritance patterns for types and objects The Principles of Object-Oriented JavaScript will leave even experienced developers with a deeper understanding of JavaScript. Unlock the secrets behind how objects work in JavaScript so you can write clearer, more flexible, and more efficient code.

Javascript: Object Oriented Programming

Javascript: Object Oriented Programming

Build sophisticated web applications by mastering the art of Object-Oriented Javascript About This Book Learn popular Object-Oriented programming (OOP) principles and design patterns to build robust apps Implement Object-Oriented concepts in a wide range of frontend architectures Capture objects from real-world elements and create object-oriented code that represents them Learn the latest ES6 features and how to test and debug issues with JavaScript code using various modern mechanisms Who This Book Is For JavaScript developers looking to enhance their web developments skills by learning object-oriented programming. What You Will Learn Get acquainted with the basics of JavaScript language constructs along with object-oriented programming and its application. Learn to build scalable server application in JavaScript using Node.js Generate instances in three programming languages: Python, JavaScript, and C# Work with a combination of access modifiers, prefixes, properties, fields, attributes, and local variables to encapsulate and hide data Master DOM manipulation, cross-browser strategies, and ES6 Identify and apply the most common design patterns such as Singleton, Factory, Observer, Model-View-Controller, and Mediator Patterns Design applications using a modular architecture based on SOLID principles In Detail JavaScript is the behavior, the third pillar in today's paradigm that looks at web pages as something that consists of : content (HTML), presentation (CSS), and behavior (JavaScript). Using JavaScript, you can create interactive web pages along with desktop widgets, browser, and application extensions, and other pieces of software. Object-oriented programming, which is popularly known as OOP, is basically based on the concept of objects rather than actions. The first module will help you master JavaScript and build futuristic web applications. You will start by getting acquainted with the language constructs and how to organize code easily. You develop concrete understanding of variable scoping, loops, and best practices on using types and data structures, as well as the coding style and recommended code organization patterns in JavaScript. The book will also teach you how to use arrays and objects as data structures. By the end of the book, you will understand how reactive JavaScript is going to be the new paradigm. The second module is an easy-to-follow course, which includes hands-on examples of solutions to common problems with object-oriented code. It will help to identify objects from real-life scenarios, to protect and hide data with the data encapsulation features of Python, JavaScript, and C#. You will discover the advantage of duck typing in both Python and JavaScript, while you work with interfaces and generics in C#. With a fair understanding of interfaces, multiple inheritance, and composition, you will move on to refactor existing code and to organize your source for easy maintenance and extension. The third module takes you through all the in-depth and exciting futures hidden behind the facade. You should read through this course if you want to be able to take your JavaScript skills to a new level of sophistication. Style and approach This course is a comprehensive guide where each chapter consists of best practices, constructive advice, and few easy-to-follow examples that will build up your skills as you advance through the book. Get object oriented with this course, which takes you on a journey to get acquainted with few useful hands-on tools, features, and ways to enhance your productivity using OOP techniques. It will also act as a reference guide with useful examples on resolving problems with object-oriented code in Python, JavaScript, and C#.
