CCATP #446 – Programming by Stealth – 18 of x JavaScript Miscellany

In this episode of Programming By Stealth, Bart Busschots takes us through the final stages of learning JavaScript within the playground. Now that we know about objects, we need to re-visit the arguments object present in every JavaScript function. We need to take a detailed look at the typeof operator, and we need to look at some built-in objects and functions JavaScript provides. We also need to look at how JavaScript handles regular expressions, and finally, we need to introduce the concept of exception handling.

CCATP #442 – Programming by Stealth – 16 of x JavaScript Callbacks

PBS LogoIn this installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart Busschots takes our understanding of functions to the next level. The techniques we encounter today would be considered advanced techniques in most other languages, and you could spend years developing in Java and never encounter an anonymous function. However, because of how JavaScript is integrated into HTML documents, these techniques are considered fundamental in JavaScript, and anonymous functions are a dime a dozen! Before we delve into anonymous functions, we’ll start by taking a deeper look at how JavaScript deals with function arguments.
