JavaScript Application Design: A Build First Approach introduces JavaScript developers to techniques that will improve the quality of their software as well as their web development workflow. You'll begin by learning how to establish build processes that are appropriate for JavaScript-driven development. Then, you'll walk through best practices for productive day-to-day development, like running tasks when your code changes, deploying applications with a single command, and monitoring the state of your application once it's in production.

The fate of most applications is often sealed before a single line of code has been written. How is that possible? Simply, bad design assures bad results. Good design and effective processes are the foundation on which maintainable applications are built, scaled, and improved. For JavaScript developers, this means discovering the tooling, modern libraries, and architectural patterns that enable those improvements.

What's inside:

  • Automated development, testing, and deployment processes
  • JavaScript fundamentals and modularity best practices
  • Modular, maintainable, and well-tested applications
  • Master asynchronous flows, embrace MVC, and design a REST API
