Hi Christophe,
I'm naive when it comes to JavaScript.
Lately I'm considering exploring Node.js technology.
Can I use your book to learn about JavaScript and then jumping into Node.js or your book is targeting web development techniques?
Thanks.

You do realize that Node.js is not browser-related script, right?

Hey John,

Well, Node.js will require that you do know JS the language well enough. That, and event handling (a Node.js program is basically a big event loop).

Still, my book is browser-oriented, and not targeted at fundamental JS language. That specific need is better addressed by other books, or excellent online resources such as EloquentJavascript.net (which totally rocks and starts from absolute zero JS programming skill). As for Node, when you end up venturing there (it's a fascinating topic, no question about it), you'll find plenty of good resources around stuff like Node Knockout, the Weekly JS and Daily JS newsletters, and more.

'HTH

Yes I do.
My question was whether the book is about JavaScript fundamentals or browser-oriented.
I got my answer
Thanks Mr. Bear and Christophe.
