Usually when I review a tech book, I’ll give more details on the content and be specific about things I liked and didn’t like. However, this post will be more of a recommendation for the You Don’t Know JS series. I’ve read the first two books, but not recently enough to dig into specifics.
At the time of this post, the first two books in the YDKJS are available, though it looks like three more will be published over the next few months. The series appears to be:
- You Don’t Know JS: Scope & Closures
- You Don’t Know JS: this & Object Prototypes
- You Don’t Know JS: Types & Grammar
- You Don’t Know JS: Async & Performance
- You Don’t Know JS: ES6 & Beyond
So…if you want to become a serious JS developer, the YDKJS series is a must-read. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the books. I’m sure I’ll continue to find out that I don’t know JS quite as well as I thought (hence the appropriate title for the series). Again, sorry for the lack of detailed analysis of these books. I just wanted to recommend them, as I think they are 2 excellent technical books.
