Javascript books to recommend!?

By Mike@IHS ·
I am a new Javascript Developer and I need to purchase a few really good Javascript programming books. I would greatly appreciate some info about recommended books and authors on Javascript and if possible also in ASP programming and CGI programming with C/C++.

Thank you!!

IMO, the O'Reilly book _JavaScript, The Definitive Guide_ is the only JavaScript book anyone would need.

The O'Reilly book _ASP In a Nutshell_ is pretty good, though ASP is more of a gestalt than an actual thing, so it's probably just as good to pick up the bits and pieces.

Are you sure you want to write your CGI's in C/C++? That's what I thought at first, a few years ago, but Perl is orders of magnitude easier. Anyway, there isn't really any big trick to doing CGI in C, except that youget the input in different (potentially OS-specific) ways based on whether the form is submitted using "get" or "post." However, it's such a pain to deal with strings in C that Perl is much better.

I agree, the above books are good. Here are some other books you might want to look at to help you get started:

Beginning JavaScript - from Wrox Press (it is very complete)

JavaScript for the World Wide Web - Visual Quickstart Guide - from Peachpit Press (very easy way to get started)


Good luck

JavaScript Bible (3rd edition 199 really helped me getting started. Loads of examples! Read the reviews at: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0764531883/qid=984951690/sr=1-1/ref=sc_b_2/104-0061504-8638325
