You Don't Know JS (Yet)

I don't know if I still have to share about this repository. Can we call this article a JavaScript repository list without including it?

This repository is an initiative by Kyle Simpson (aka Getify), author of the "You Don't Know JS (Yet)" book series. These books dive deep into the core mechanisms of the JavaScript language.

The author shares the numeric version of these books in the repository for free.

Note: You can buy the books to support the author and have a paperback version.

The programming world has a famous book called "Clean Code". This repository is an adaption of these clean code concepts but for JavaScript.

The presentation is straightforward:

  • a practice (sometimes with a short description)

  • a bad example

  • a good example

30 Days Of JavaScript

Do you want to learn JavaScript in "30" days? There you go!

This repository's concept guides you step-by-step in your JavaScript journey. Indeed, you'll have one notion per day for 30 days.

Each day, you'll have resources, exercises, and sometimes projects.

Note: As mentioned in the repository, even if the repository name is "30 days", it may take way more time. The key to learning successfully is to do it at your own pace.

Modern JS Cheatsheet

For this repository, here's the author's description:

"This document is a cheatsheet for JavaScript you will frequently encounter in modern projects and most contemporary sample code.This guide is not intended to teach you JavaScript from the ground up, but to help developers with basic knowledge who may struggle to get familiar with modern codebases (or let's say to learn React for instance) because of the JavaScript concepts used.Besides, I will sometimes provide personal tips that may be debatable but will take care to mention that it's a personal recommendation when I do so."

Definitely the kind of repository you can bookmark and refer to later when you feel the need.
