Single Page Web Applications: JavaScript end-to-end

Buy

Summary

In Single Page Web Applications you'll learn to build modern browser-based apps that take advantage of stronger client platforms and more predictable bandwidth. You'll learn the SPA design approach, and then start exploring new techniques like structured JavaScript and responsive design. And you'll learn how to capitalize on trends like server-side JavaScript and NoSQL data stores, as well as new frameworks that make JavaScript more manageable and testable as a first-class language.

About this Book

If your website is a jumpy collection of linked pages, you are behind. Single page web applications are your next step: pushing UI rendering and business logic to the browser and communicating with the server only to synchronize data, they provide a smooth user experience, much like a native application. But, SPAs can be hard to develop, manage, and test.

Single Page Web Applications shows how your team can easily design, test, maintain, and extend sophisticated SPAs using JavaScript end-to-end, without getting locked into a framework. Along the way, you'll develop advanced HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript skills, and use JavaScript as the language of the web server and the database.

This book assumes basic knowledge of web development. No experience with SPAs is required.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

Machines That Become Us: The Social Context of Personal Communication Technology
Machines That Become Us: The Social Context of Personal Communication Technology
The quaint Midwestern town I grew up in seemed to have been plunked down, whole and immutable, in the middle of a vast farmland quilt. From its compact downtown, a vista of unbroken cornfields stretched in every direction, sealed hermetically at the distant horizon by a brilliant azure bowl of a sky. Throughout the summer, the prairie winds hissed...

Accordingly this book approaches software project management from two directions: (1) how to plan and manage a software project; and (2) how to regain control of a project...
