Few days back I attended a training given by Alexis Abril. It changed my thoughts about the JavaScript. Earlier my thought on JavaScript was “JavaScript is a scripting language just to manipulate HTML DOM elements mainly”.But after going through in-depth knowledge of JavaScript,I became a fan of JavaScript. It is not only document.getElementById , but it is a real programming language. Its prototype nature is really awesome. No doubts there are some flaws in the language but I think every language contains them.

Context,prototype,functions are some of the remarkable features of this language.Moreover Javascript also possesses Object oriented nature but in a slight different manner. Libraries like JQuery,Dojo etc has further extended the capabilities of this language.

I would recommend every web developer especially UI developers to learn this language in-depth. Few of the books I am following on the recommendation of Alexis Abril are JavaScript: The Definitive Guide 6th Edition and JavaScript: The Good Parts 1st Edition.....

I would recommend readers to get the sixth edition of Definitive Guide because it includes HTML5 also. Second book is written by great Douglas Crockford and includes some advance JavaScript philosophies.
