Build Better Web Sites Using Prototype and script.aculo.us


Apressís new title, Prototype and script.aculo.us helps to ease the frustrations of a web site developer and through the use of script.aculo.us this title focuses on creating serviceable and attractive user interfaces.

Berkeley, CA, July 24, 2008 --(PR.com)-- While multiple JavaScript libraries exist—each uniquely suited to provide JavaScript programmers with the exact tools they need to get the job done—the Prototype and script.aculo.us libraries are among the best supported and comprehensive available. While Prototype’s goal is to ease the frustrations of developing dynamic web sites, script.aculo.us focuses on creating serviceable and attractive user interfaces. Together, these libraries provide nearly everything a JavaScript developer needs to build a fully functional and attractive web application.

Seeing the need for a comprehensive book that introduces the Prototype and script.aculo.us libraries to JavaScript developers, Andrew Dupont—a core development team member for Prototype—has authored Practical Prototype and script.aculo.us. Specifically written for JavaScript developers with little to no experience with Prototype and script.aculo.us experience, this book provides the missing pieces of the puzzle to implementing and getting the most out of these essential JavaScript libraries.

Highlights from this title include the following:
· Includes multiple real-world examples that can easily be copied and used in real applications
· Explains how to create dynamic user interfaces that are cross-browser compliant
· Offers tips and explanations to building efficient code
· Demonstrates how to use Prototype and script.aculo.us as a platform

According to the author, “I know that we all face the same problems when it comes to creating dynamic web content, and I wrote this book for the same reason that I contribute to the Prototype project—there really is an easier, faster way.”
