Hi Cay,

Good luck with the book.

I have limited experience with modern JavaScript and not really worked with it for many years.

Does the book fill in the gaps from say ES6 onwards or would I need to get more up to date with JavaScript before reading this book?

Thanks Kevin.

Hi Kevin,

you don't need to know anything at all about JavaScript. Most Java programmers probably know a smattering of ancient JavaScript, but that can be less than useful, so I just start with the beginnings. I do assume that you know how to code, so I don't define what a variable or a loop is. And I don't force you to relive history. I briefly point out which obsolete features not to use, and focus on the features that you should be using.

Cheers,

Cay
