Choosing the right libraries and frameworks for large-scale JavaScript applications isn't enough. Successful web development requires a more disciplined approach to application architecture and development. The Build First philosophy of designing clean, well-structured, and testable applications before writing a single line of code ensures that developers start right and end up with applications that are easy to maintain, scale, and refactor. JavaScript Application Design: A Build First approach introduces developers to techniques that will improve the quality of their software as well as web development workflow. It shows how to establish build processes appropriate for JavaScript-driven development, and it looks at best practices for productive day-to-day development, like running tasks when code changes, deploying applications with a single command, and monitoring the state of an application once it's in production. Along the way, it gives insights into designing well-rounded architectures for applications running on the Node.js platform. RETAIL SELLING POINTS Comprehensive discussion of build processes Best practices for productive day-to-day development Write JavaScript Applications that deploy with a push of a button Innovative approach to building JavaScript applications AUDIENCE This book is written for web developers who have mastered the basics of JavaScript. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY The process and design concepts taught in the book are language-agnostic, and will stay with the reader even if they decide to develop applications in other languages. Implementation examples are written using JavaScript and Node.JS. These code samples will help immerse the reader into the world of maintainable and well-designed JavaScript applications.
