Oct 25, Rob rated it really liked it Recommends it for: If you’re a Ptterns developer, you would be wise sefanov have this on your bookshelf–nestled nicely between JavaScript: The three make a nice little troika.

And read them in that order: Many of these patterns are language-agnostic–and you’re likely to recognize stecanov from “The Gang of Four”–but Stefanov puts them in their JavaScript party dresses and takes them out to the patternns. Stefanov is also a lucid and concise author, clearly illustrating his points about these design patterns; the text is accessible–easy to follow and digest–and he is careful to clearly define words and terms that might be ambiguous or commonly misunderstood e.

JavaScript steanov makes a great transition guide for intermediate developers–the men and women who have stopped confusing jQuery-the-library with JavaScript-the-language–the folks who are ready to re-evaluate their approach software development with JavaScript.

This is for the folks that made it through Crockford’s The Good Parts knowing that they learned something but also feeling less-than-certain about how to apply that something. This is the follow-on; JavaScript Patterns is the application of those lessons. And then after you’ve written stefaonv clean, maintainable, scalable applications–then you make the jump to Zakas’ High Performance JavaScript to tune things just a little bit further.

So you’re probably wondering then: The four stars comes mostly from two niggling points: As a consequence, since I’d read the others and quite a few others above and beyond those twothere is quite a bit of information in there that I’d seen before. This is not a Bad Thing; sometimes it stoan to see information presented again–to help it sink in or else to gain another perspective on it.

Sometimes and I’ve written this before you were just hoping for The book could have taken another quick patternx pass for spelling and grammar.

The one that stuck out at me was right in the intro to Chapter 6: An in-depth overview, but an overview nonetheless. Stefanov is careful to “keep the browser out of it” and dedicates only one chapter Chapter 8: DOM and Browser Patterns to the subject; though everyone’s favorite host environment does creep in a couple of times, in a couple of examples.

Dec 23, Adrian Li rated it really liked it. This is a good book and most stoyna who work with Javascript should spend at least a couple hours going through it.

But there is a caveat: This book was published instoyab there are many things that are talked about, which we really don’t have to worry about anymore. In any case, you need to read through this book in a smart manner. Don’t force yourself to go through This is a good book and most people who work with Javascript should spend at least a couple hours going through etefanov.

Don’t force yourself to go through absolutely everything, and definitely skip some sections if it’s quite obvious that you won’t really need to go through them in detail since a lot of today’s best practices avoid some of the mentioned patterns completely. Nevertheless, this is an important book to read. And if you have a nuanced reading strategy like Sotyan mentioned aboveyou can probably get through this book within 3 hours or so and learn a decent amount while doing so.

Of these, there is a large variety of variants; mostly presented in an evolutionary chain the leads to increasingly better solutions. This is interesting for a an understanding why a pattern in recommended, it’s not the most compact way of representation on the other hand.

There is a lack of macroscopic, task-oriented patterns. This is not a book learning about common patterns in general, applied to JavaScript. I found reading JavaScript patterns beneficial; coming from C as my primary language it filled some of the gaps javascirpt how objects and funtions can be utilized to create a richer programming platform. For that purpose however, I found “The Good Parts” more compact. Only a small part of JavaScript Patterns is about design patterns.

Much more pages are spent on best practices and the deployment story. While these parts are very useful, they may not be what you javasscript looking for.

The Singleton pattern is a one example I like to stefanpv to illustrate some of the problems with the book. Jqvascript his book Stoyan Stefanov keeps going and going and uses 5 pages with workarounds. This is great if you must implement a Singleton, but most likely you are better off if you just would stop forcing it into JavaScript.

As long as you read this book as a way to write JavaScript and not as the definitive guide on JavaScript Patterns you can learn a lot. Sep 23, Diego Higuchi rated it really liked it. Oct 07, Andrew rated it really liked it.

Learning JavaScript Design Patterns

May 12, Payterns Zukowski added it. Goodreads fix your broken UX please. Stsfanov 12, Maciej Cieslar rated it it was amazing. Sep 09, Harvey rated it really liked it Shelves: Some of the author’s suggestions about how to handle loading of JS are getting quite dated, but the discussion of design patterns is still worth buying this book.

Nov 27, Dave Lorentz rated it it was amazing. Do not re invent the wheel! Patterns are a cornerstone of systems design and this book shows how they can be applied.

I would like to see data access patterns added, especially now that HTML5 is so wide spread. But that does not take away from the good set of patterns described here. Sep 28, Paul Pacurar rated it it was amazing. Mar 19, Marcus rated it it was ok. Let me start by presenting my ‘credentials’ steafnov the field – I have two decades of programming experience in different object-oriented languages, mainly in. Most of the time I deal with client-server applications in Windows environment.

Over last couple of years I started increasingly dabbling with HTML5 and JavaScript, a challenge which I admit freely is not very enjoyable to me mostly due to JavaScript’s chaotic nature stefsnov my opinion at least.

When I reached for this partic Let me start by presenting my ‘credentials’ in the field – I have stoyna decades of programming experience in different object-oriented languages, mainly javaascript. When I reached for this particular volume, I hoped it would expand my basic understanding of JavaScript and make my transition from object-oriented world into function-based programming a bit easier.

This initial objective wasn’t reached, for a very simple reason – ‘JavaScript Patterns’ is a book that tells you ‘what and how’, but not ‘why and when’. Also, it assumes a deeper understanding of JavaScript as a language that I posess after two years of its use.

I don’t think steefanov fair to blame the book for not being what I hoped for it to be.

But at the same time I must say that the presentations of different patterns in this book are really very brief and shallow. The coverage of modules in particular was in my opinion deeply disapointing – a couple of generic code snippets and references to patterns previously discussed was deeply unsatisfactory coverage of this fundamental pattern to me. Don’t get me wrong, I understand perfectly the reason this book is presented in this way – the reader is supposed to take what’s shown in the book, apply it to the real life program and build on his own from there.

Fine, I get it. But the briefness of the ‘demonstrations’ in this particular book means that the reader will have to do a lot of guesswork and probably find additional sources of information BEFORE understanding a particular technique and isn’t providing this understanding the actual goal of this book?

Would it be so hard for the author to expand his examples, perhaps apply the techniques he discusses to a couple of commonly occuring real life problems? It may be the briefness of content of this book, it may be my lacking knowledge of more complex aspects of function-based programming in general and JavaScript in particular. Whatever the reason may by, I didn’t find this book very informative.

Mar 17, Rod Hilton rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’ve come away with a much greater appreciation for the language than I used to have, and I feel much more comfortable with the idiotmatic usage of the language.
