Eloquent JavaScript Teaches You JavaScript For Free

Eloquent JavaScript Teaches You JavaScript for Free

These days, there's no shortage of great resources for learning to code. Here's another great one, a 21-chapter book posted online and chock-full of JavaScript training.

Eloquent JavaScript is written by Marijn Haverbeke, builder of CodeMirror, an in-browser code editing tool. In the book, you'll not only learn about objects and arrays and debugging, but also walk through several projects, such as building a platform game in your browser. There's even a code sandbox so you can download source code from the chapters or edit and run your own code.

It looks like a very thorough book, generously made possible by donations from 454 backers. Print and eBook versions are in the works, but you can get started right now reading from the Eloquent JavaScript website.

    Am I missing something here? If I can't download it, if I can only read it online, that makes it a "website" not a "book", surely?
