So you’re probably wondering then: The four stars comes mostly from two niggling points: As a consequence, since I’d read the others and quite a few others above and beyond those twothere is quite a bit of information in there that I’d seen before. This is not a Bad Thing; sometimes it pays to see information presented again–to help it sink in or else to gain another perspective on it. Sometimes and I’ve written this before you were just hoping for The book could have taken another quick editorial pass for spelling and grammar.
The one that stuck out at me was right in the intro to Chapter 6: An in-depth overview, but an overview nonetheless. Stefanov is careful to javxscript the browser out of it” and dedicates only one chapter Chapter 8: DOM and Browser Patterns to the subject; though steranov favorite host environment does creep in a couple of times, in a couple of examples.

Nevertheless, this is an important book to read. And if you have a nuanced reading strategy like I mentioned aboveyou can probably get through this book within patterms hours or so and learn a decent amount while doing so.

Of these, there is a large variety of variants; patterms presented in an evolutionary chain the leads to increasingly better solutions. This is interesting for a an understanding why a pattern in recommended, it’s not the most compact way of representation on the yb hand.
Much more pages are spent on best practices stoya the deployment story. While these parts are javacript useful, they may not be what you are looking for. The Singleton pattern is a one example Javascrpit like to pick to illustrate some of the problems with the book.

Feb 12, Maciej Cieslar rated it it was amazing. Sep 09, Harvey rated it really liked it Shelves: Some of the author’s suggestions about how to handle loading of JS are getting quite dated, but the discussion of design patterns is still worth buying this book.
Nov 27, Dave Lorentz rated it it javascriipt amazing. Do not re invent the wheel! Patterns are a cornerstone of javascripf design and this book shows how they can be applied. I would pqtterns to see data access patterns added, especially now that HTML5 is so wide spread. But that does not take away from the good set of patterns described here. Sep 28, Paul Pacurar rated it it was amazing. Mar 19, Marcus rated it it was ok. Let me start by presenting my ‘credentials’ in the field – I have two decades of programming experience in different object-oriented languages, mainly in.
But at the same time I must say that the presentations of different patterns in this book are really very brief and shallow. The coverage of modules in particular was in my opinion deeply disapointing – a couple of generic code snippets and references to patterns previously discussed was deeply unsatisfactory coverage of this fundamental pattern to me.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand perfectly the reason this book is presented in this way – the reader is supposed to take what’s shown in the book, apply it to the real life program and build on his own from there. Fine, I get it. But the briefness of the ‘demonstrations’ in this particular book means that the reader will have to do a lot of guesswork and probably find additional sources of information BEFORE understanding a particular technique and isn’t providing this understanding the actual goal of this book?
Would it be so hard for the author to expand his examples, perhaps apply the techniques he discusses to a couple of commonly occuring real life problems?
