Java Script Tutorial By Yahoo's JS Architect

This is a remarkable tutorial on JavaScript. It gives a lot of standards, language structures, coding conventions, etc. Please note that these videos have been made in 2006. YUI was probably in its initial stages. So you can imagine how much effort has been put in the architecture. This also tells how much architecture plays as a role in the successful development of an application or a framework.

To start with the first tutorial, which gives you the basics of JavaScript.

The video is available in four parts. You can also get the slides of the presentation.

Part 1: 31 minutes Part 2: 31 minutes Part 3: 29 minutes Part 4: 20 minutes Download slides (zipped PowerPoint file)


If you like this tutorial you might also be interested in the videos that are shown in related videos section in yahoo vidoes web site. I can also visit to YUI blog.

They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

Text to Binarize:
For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…

Many a time, a page you are debugging doesnot have jquery. This simple js will add(or prompt you to overwrite) jquery to any page from chrome console.
