About the Author
Mat "Wilto" Marquis is an amateur boxer, aspiring chef, halfway decent carpenter, and passable antique British motorcycle mechanic-when not making fast, accessible, responsive websites. He keeps busy.As chair of the Responsive Issues Community Group, Mat spearheaded the effort to bring native responsive image solutions to the HTML5 specification, later going on to facilitate browser implementations and oversee the addition of native responsive image techniques to major CMSes. He has spoken at An Event Apart, edited for A List Apart, and published books with A Book Apart, completing what he describes as "like an EGOT, but for putting semicolons in the right places."

Mat consistently demonstrates empathy for you (his reader), your users, and the future maintainers of your code, making this book a great companion for any web designer looking to take on more programming responsibilities.

JavaScript is here, in full force. You hold in your hands a book that clearly explains the essentials you really need to know. Mat will teach you how to write running code for real websites and give you a firm grasp on JavaScript's building blocks.


Executive producer and host of The Web Ahead

When I first tried learning JavaScript, I gave up, deciding it was impossible. It was only a year later that I went back, gave it another go, and started to get it. This book would have saved me that year. It covers not only understanding JavaScript, but also how to use it responsibly within the browser. You won't find that in many other books, which is why there are so many bad experiences on the web.
