Four chapters submitted to O’Reilly

We have submitted the drafts of four chapters of the book “Enterprise Web Development: from Desktop to Mobile” to O’Reilly for review and editing. This is a pretty hands-on book as we are developing an application Save Sick Child while explaining various techniques and technologies. The readers will get a new independent working application every time we add a new piece of functionality (e.g. login, donation form, video, Google maps, charts, auction, etc.). These projects will be published on the dedicated Web site For example, this is a sample application illustrating modularization of the JavaScript-based UI.


The following chapters are submitted to the publisher, but the raw texts are available for you to read now on the github at

Chapter 2. Advanced Intro to JavaScript
Chapter 3. Mocking up Save Sick Child
Chapter 4. Using AJAX and JSON
Chapter 9. Replacing HTTP with WebSockets

Currently we are working on the chapters on responsive design, test-driven development and modularization of the JavaScript applications. We’re making these unpolished chapters available for you to read hoping to get valuable technical feedback from you. Please do let us know if you see some bugs or inefficient solutions in the code samples. We really really appreciate it.
