A quick, easy guide to building cutting-edge intelligence into your website

Without "smart," interactive content, your website just won't cut it with today's savvy Web surfers. Fortunately, with JavaScript, it's now incredibly easy to build intelligent sites, and this book shows you how.

Featuring a rapid skill-building format, this book is organized around goals you want to accomplish with JavaScript rather than the language's technical aspects. Even if you've never programmed a line of code in your life, you'll quickly learn how to enliven your site with the smarts it needs to automatically tailor its content to an individual user's needs, solve problems, make decisions, create new pages on the fly, and even close sales!

Nigel Ford eases you into the basics of JavaScript and then, with the help of dozens of vivid examples, teaches you:
* Basic and advanced techniques for adding intelligence to your Web pages
* How to store different types of knowledge in your Web pages
* Techniques for handling requests, accessing files, and using databases in server-side JavaScript
* Programming for language processing, searching, problem solving, and game playing
* How to program for both the client side and server side with JavaScript.
