Create classic data structures and algorithms such as depth-first search and breadth-first search, learn recursion, as well as create and use a heap data structure using JavaScript Key Features Implement common data structures and the associated algorithms along with the context in which they are used Master existing JavaScript data structures such as arrays, sets, and maps, and learn how to implement new ones such as stacks, linked lists, trees, and graphs in ES 8 Develop abstract data types to make JavaScript a more flexible and powerful programming language Book Description A data structure is a particular way of organizing data in a computer to utilize resources efficiently. Data structures and algorithms are the base of every solution to any programming problem. With this book, you will learn to write complex and powerful code using the latest ES 2017 features. Learning JavaScript Data Structures and Algorithms begins by covering the basics of JavaScript and introduces you to ECMAScript 2017, before gradually moving on to the most important data structures such as arrays, queues, stacks, and linked lists. You will gain in-depth knowledge of how hash tables and set data structures function as well as how trees and hash maps can be used to search files in an HD or represent a database. This book serves as a route to take you deeper into JavaScript. You’ll also get a greater understanding of why and how graphs, one of the most complex data structures, are largely used in GPS navigation systems in social networks. Toward the end of the book, you’ll discover how all the theories presented in this book can be applied to solve real-world problems while working on your own computer networks and Facebook searches. What you will learn Declare, initialize, add, and remove items from arrays, stacks, and queues Create and use linked lists, doubly linked lists, and circular linked lists Store unique elements with hash tables, dictionaries, and sets Explore the use of binary trees and binary search trees Sort data structures using algorithms such as bubble sort, selection sort, insertion sort, merge sort, and quick sort Search elements in data structures using sequential sort and binary search Who this book is for If you’re a JavaScript developer who wants to dive deep into JavaScript and write complex programs using JavaScript data structures and algorithms, this book is for you.

DOM Manipulation in 2018 Manipulating HTML & CSS in browsers remains JavaScript's most important task. This book explains how to make web pages more dynamic, interactive, and responsive. Allergic to web apps that reload with every click? You will learn how to create online applications that are easy and comfortable to use. You will also learn how to program interfaces for managing products, create dynamic tooltips, develop your own image galleries and much more. Don't let ready-made web building kits or frameworks limit you. Use JavaScript to let your creativity flourish and turn your ideas into reality. Just a few years ago, JQuery was undisputed leader in the field of DOM manipulation. In the meantime, however, JavaScript has caught up. Today, you can write highly concise and comprehensible code with pure JavaScript. In the past, programmers always had to take different browsers into account. Today's browsers speak a common modern JavaScript and offer standardized DOM. An essential foundation If you are looking to create large single-page applications using frameworks such as Angular or React, it is essential that you understand the underlying browsers' API. It will allow you to devise alternative solutions for when the frameworks reach their limit. Modern syntax This book uses the current ES6+/ES2018 syntax presented in Vol 1, enabling you to write very short, concise, and above all, well-readable code. Content This latest, completely revised edition takes the latest JavaScript and browser developments into account. Here is an excerpt of the content: Selecting HTML elements with querySelectorAll DOM scripting: DOM creation, manipulation & traversal Reading and modifying HTML attributes Working with data attributes CSS manipulation with the classList interface CSS manipulation with the style object Asynchronous and delayed loading of JavaScript files Registering and handling events Prerequisites Basic JavaScript knowledge (ES6+) is required. You can learn the basics in the first volume of this series. OWL Step-by-Step Guides OWL Step-by-Step Guides convey practical knowledge in a simple and understandable way. They are written based on teaching practice by experts from the renowned Open Web Learning Institute and conceived in such a way that you can put your own projects into practice. Knowledge tests and exercises serve to deepen and consolidate the newly acquired know-how. This OWL Step-by-Step Guide is part of the online course "JavaScript" at OWL Institute but can also be used independently of the course. The online course offers additional benefits such as personal support, quizzes, assignments and and a final exam including an official certification.
