My Review for the O'Reilly Blogger Review Program.
Well, that's what I first thought! The first section does actually go into a little more detail and provides some commonly used methods and applications of them and I even learned a thing or two, just goes to show!
I feel that in reading through the majority of this section chapter by chapter that I was actually able to take a step back and relearn some aspects of the language and also see some of the reasoning behind why the features were added by Brendan Eich in the beginning along with a few deprecated features and the rationale behind such decisions.
Tips, Tools and Libraries
I tend to skip the formatting advice as I find that on different projects other developers' standards vary quite a lot (spaces vs tabs, anyone?) and I tend to adapt quite quickly to others' formatting standards, but the rest of this chapter covers everything I could've wanted for reference, reiterating a lot of practises that I already know and have been looking into.
After the useful sections on formatting and debugging tools I picked up a couple of tips on documentation that I’ll be working into a project ASAP and I read through the exhaustive list of resources, filling my Pocket with around 20 To Read links!
Tips, Tools and Libraries is a great read for aspiring developers looking to improve their standards so it comes highly recommended by me!
