This Is Still the Most Beautiful Way to Learn How to Code

gizmodo“Regardless of whether or not you agree with the “code or die ” sentiment that’s been floating around the internet, if you have decided to teach yourself to code, the sheer number of learn-to-code sites alone is overwhelming. So do yourself (and your eyes) a favor and pick up Jon Duckett’s JavaScript and jQuery book instead.

Just like the HTML and CSS version before it, Duckett’s JavaScript iteration is full of beautiful, elegant visualizations that break a complicated topic into easily digestible bits. This one is aimed at folks who already have a decent grasp on some basic coding concepts (specifically, those you’d learn in the book below), but with a single topic per page, you definitely don’t need to come in with a programming background to be able to engage.


In exchange for handing over your hard-earned $23, you’ll get introduced to basic JavaScript Instructions, Decisions & Loops, Ajax & JSON, and APIs, just to name a few. The paperback is already available for purchase, but if you’re hoping to snag a hardcover version, you’ll have to wait until July 21. And considering how gorgeous as Duckett’s books are, it might actually be worth the wait.”
