If you've used a more traditional object-oriented language, such as C++ or Java, JavaScript probably doesn't seem object-oriented at all. It has no concept of classes, and you don’t even need to define any objects in order to write code. But don’t be fooled—JavaScript is an incredibly powerful and expressive object-oriented language that puts many design decisions right into your hands. In The Principles of Object-Oriented JavaScript, Nicholas C. Zakas thoroughly explores JavaScript’s object-oriented nature, revealing the language’s unique implementation of inheritance and other key characteristics. You’ll learn: * The difference between primitive and reference values * What makes JavaScript functions so unique * The various ways to create objects * How to define your own constructors * How to work with and understand prototypes * Inheritance patterns for types and objects The Principles of Object-Oriented JavaScript will leave even experienced developers with a deeper understanding of JavaScript. Unlock the secrets behind how objects work in JavaScript so you can write clearer, more flexible, and more efficient code.

You will first be introduced to object-oriented programming, then to the basics of objects in JavaScript. This book takes a do-it-yourself approach when it comes to writing code, because the best way to really learn a programming language is by writing code. You are encouraged to type code into Firebug's console, see how it works and then tweak it and play around with it. There are practice questions at the end of each chapter to help you review what you have learned. For new to intermediate JavaScript developer who wants to prepare themselves for web development problems solved by smart JavaSc.

This brief book explains the advantages of the object model, inheritance, both classical and prototypical, and shows how these concepts can be implemented in JavaScript. It also shows how object programming (OP) opens a new world of design possibilities that go far beyond inheritance. This book will help the intermediate JavaScript programmer learn to use both types of inheritance. For classical inheritance, it is accompanied by a substantial online system (a windowing UI library) that shows classical inheritance at its best. The same system shows how OP "capabilities" can eliminate much of the need for inheritance. For experienced JavaScript programmers, this book shows why most of the old views of JavaScript's inheritance have not done it justice. JavaScript classes inherit from JavaScript's prototypes, a fact that makes JavaScript's prototypes, when used correctly, functional equivalents to C++ classes (not to prototypes in true prototypical languages, like Self). JavaScript's object programming (not inheritance) is what separates it from classical OOP languages like C++ and Java. Most important, basing inheritance on JavaScript's prototypal chain is possible, but is not the best choice for prototypal inheritance or classical inheritance. What You'll Learn What are objects, JavaScript objects and object programming What is and how to use inheritance and JavaScript inheritance as well as inheritance alternatives How to design for JavaScript What are and how to use OO principles in JavaScript How to use Constructors with JavaScript and more AudienceThis book is for both intermediate and advanced JavaScript and Web development programmers. However, any programmer will understand the concepts and any JavaScript programmer should understand all of the concepts in this book. The code there is shows examples of the concepts discussed.

The Complete Guide to Writing More Maintainable, Manageable, Pleasing, and Powerful Ruby Applications Ruby’s widely admired ease of use has a downside: Too many Ruby and Rails applications have been created without concern for their long-term maintenance or evolution. The Web is awash in Ruby code that is now virtually impossible to change or extend. This text helps you solve that problem by using powerful real-world object-oriented design techniques, which it thoroughly explains using simple and practical Ruby examples. Sandi Metz has distilled a lifetime of conversations and presentations about object-oriented design into a set of Ruby-focused practices for crafting manageable, extensible, and pleasing code. She shows you how to build new applications that can survive success and repair existing applications that have become impossible to change. Each technique is illustrated with extended examples, all downloadable from the companion Web site, poodr.info. The first title to focus squarely on object-oriented Ruby application design, Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby will guide you to superior outcomes, whatever your previous Ruby experience. Novice Ruby programmers will find specific rules to live by; intermediate Ruby programmers will find valuable principles they can flexibly interpret and apply; and advanced Ruby programmers will find a common language they can use to lead development and guide their colleagues. This guide will help you Understand how object-oriented programming can help you craft Ruby code that is easier to maintain and upgrade Decide what belongs in a single Ruby class Avoid entangling objects that should be kept separate Define flexible interfaces among objects Reduce programming overhead costs with duck typing Successfully apply inheritance Build objects via composition Design cost-effective tests Solve common problems associated with poorly designed Ruby code

This book teaches you all the essential knowledge required to learn and apply time-proven SOLID principles of object-oriented design and important design patterns in ASP.NET Core 1.0 (formerly ASP.NET 5) applications. You will learn to write server-side as well as client-side code that makes use of proven practices and patterns. SOLID is an acronym popularized by Robert Martin used to describe five basic principles of good object-oriented design--Single Responsibility, Open/Closed, Liskov Substitution, Interface Segregation and Dependency Inversion. This book covers all five principles and illustrates how they can be used in ASP.NET Core 1.0 applications. Design Patterns are time proven solutions to commonly occurring software design problems. The most well-known catalog of design patterns comes from Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson and John Vlissides, the so-called as GoF patterns (Gang of Four patterns). This book contains detailed descriptions of how to apply Creational, Structural and Behavioral GoF design patterns along with some Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture. Popular JavaScript patterns are covered, along with working examples of all these patterns in ASP.NET Core 1.0 and C# are included. What You Will Learn: How to apply SOLID principles to ASP.NET applications How to use Gang of Four (GoF) design patterns in ASP.NET applications Techniques for applying Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture cataloged by Martin Fowler in ASP.NET applications How to organize code and apply design patterns in JavaScript Who This Book Is For:This book is for ASP.NET developers familiar with ASP.NET Core 1.0, C# and Visual Studio.
