JavaScript was initially designed for small-scale programming in web browsers, but modern JavaScript is completely different. Nowadays, JavaScript programmers actively accept functional, object-oriented, and asynchronous programming, while disapproving error-prone concepts from the past. Modern JavaScript for the Impatient(ePub/PDF) is a complete yet brief guide to JavaScript E6 and beyond. Instead of first requiring you to learn and transition from older versions, it assists you quickly get productive with today’s far more powerful versions and rapidly move from languages such as Java, C, C#, or C++.

Bestselling programming author Cay S. Horstmann encompasses all you need to know, provided in small chunks organized for easy understanding and quick access. Horstmann’s practical insights and sample code help you take benefit of all that’s new, avoid common pitfalls and outdated features, and make the most of modern JavaScript’s robust toolchains and frameworks.
