JavaScript is one of the hottest web development technologies around, and DOM Scripting is a very important subset of JavaScript, which specifically allows developers to add dynamic functionality to their web applications.

Interest in this subject is proven by sales of the book "DOM Scripting" from friends of ED (1590595335,) and Pro DOM Scripting adds to that knowledge base by providing a Pro level resource aimed more at developers/programmers than designers. Pro DOM Scripting provides a thorough walkthrough of all the fundamentals you need to know for effective dynamic web applications (OOP, events, Ajax, JavaScript libraries etc.)

It then hits home with 3 complete real world case studies detailing complete dynamic web applications. This is the first DOM Scripting book aimed at the experienced web developer.

About the author (2007)

Aaron Gustafson pushed pixels and bits as a freelancer for many top companies (Aetna, Deloitte & Touche, Delta Airlines, Guinness, IBM and Scholastic, to name a few) before taking a position at Cronin and Company, a regional advertising agency. At Cronin, Aaron got the digital department off the ground and set the standards (pun intended) for all web development within the agency. His work on websites for Bertucci's, Konica Minolta, Mystic Aquarium, TriZetto and several Connecticut state agencies garnered numerous state, national and international awards for Cronin, for both design and web standards. In early 2006, Aaron left Cronin to focus on building his own web shop (Easy! Designs, LLC) and writing more. In addition to being a member of the Web Standards Project (WaSP), Aaron sits on the advisory panel for WOW (formerly World Organization of Webmasters) and is a member of the Guild of Accessible Web Designers (GAWDS). He serves as production editor for A List Apart, is a contributing writer for Digital Web Magazine, and contributed several chapters to the newly-updated Web Design in a Nutshell, Third Edition (O'Reilly). Aaron has been a featured speaker at numerous conferences, including COMDEX, MacWorld and SXSW, and has been called on to provide web standards training in both government and corporations. He blogs at easy-reader.net.
