Practical ES6

Ideal for professional software developers with a basic understanding of JavaScript, this practical book shows you how to build small, interconnected ES6 JavaScript modules that emphasize reusability. You’ll learn how to face a project with a modular mindset, and how to organize your applications into simple pieces that work well in isolation and can be combined to create a large, robust application. This book focuses on two aspects of JavaScript development: modularity and ES6 features. You’ll learn how to tackle application development by following a scale-out approach. As pieces of your codebase grow too big, you can break them up into smaller modules.

ECMAScript 6 Succinctly

ECMAScript 6 (ES6), also known as ECMAScript 2015, brings new functionality and features to the table that developers have been wanting for a long time. The wait is over, and with help from ECMAScript 6 Succinctly by Matthew Duffield, you can now develop all of these features. You can also target browsers that don’t even support ES6 yet using a transpiler. A compiler translates one language to another, such as C# to MSIL, while a transpiler converts one version of a language to another, such as ES6 to ES5.

Single Page Apps In Depth

“This free book is what I wanted when I started working with single page apps. It’s not an API reference on a particular framework, rather, the focus is on discussing patterns, implementation choices and decent practices. I’m taking a “code and concepts” approach to the topic – the best way to learn how to use something is to understand how it is implemented. My ambition here is to decompose the problem of writing a web app, take a fresh look at it and hopefully make better decisions the next time you make one.”
