JavaScript Garden

JavaScript Garden is a growing collection of documentation about the most quirky parts of the JavaScript programming language. It gives advice to avoid common mistakes, subtle bugs, as well as performance issues and bad practices that non-expert JavaScript programmers may encounter on their endeavours into the depths of the language.

JavaScript Garden does not aim to teach you JavaScript. Former knowledge of the language is strongly recommended in order to understand the topics covered in this guide. In order to learn the basics of the language, please head over to the excellent guide on the Mozilla Developer Network.

The authors

This guide is the work of two lovely Stack Overflow users, Ivo Wetzel (Writing) and Zhang Yi Jiang (Design).

In case you are interested in additional guidance or reviews concerning your JavaScript projects, Ivo Wetzel offers these on a freelance basis. Please feel free to contact him via e-mail for further details.



JavaScript Garden is published under the MIT license and hosted on GitHub. If you find errors or typos please file an issue or a pull request on the repository. You can also find us in the JavaScript room on Stack Overflow chat.
